Pediatric Dentist- Babies to Teens! Metairie and Slidell Our office, as well as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommends that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. You can make the first visit to the dentist enjoyable and positive. Your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less “to-do” concerning the visit, the better. It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear, such as “needle”, “shot”, “pull”, “drill” or “hurt”. The office makes a practice of using words that convey the same message, but are pleasant and non-frightening to the child. We invite you to stay with your child during the initial examination. During future appointments, we suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through the dental experience. We can usually establish a closer rapport with your child when you are not present. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome apprehension. However, if you choose, you may come with your child to the treatment room. For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who […]

Hi there! I’m Teena, the owner & photographer of Time Worn Tales Photography. I’m originally from Chicago, but New Orleans has been my home since 2006. I love hanging out with my husband, daughter, two dogs, and rabbit. What inspires me? The melancholy color of the sky at twilight, the sound of ocean waves, jazz drifting through the streets of the city, the twinkling of gas lanterns, fairy tales, the endless energy of childhood, and the incredible bond between mother and child. When you book a session with me, it is about more than the portraits. It’s also about your experience, memories, and telling your own tale. We’re capturing those fleeting moments in time before they are gone. Childhood goes by so quickly, and before you know it, your little one will be all grown up. How will you remember those days? We will work together to preserve your memories for generations to come. Fairy tales are my specialty and I can’t wait to bring your story to life. With a little bit of fairy dust, imagination, and magic, we should be on our way!

Hello. My name is Ariane Johnson Phillips. I am the proud owner and founder of PhillipsKidsTutoring, LLC. I started PKT in 2009 with the vision of having the opportunity to provide all students with an excellent education. Through my experiences I have learned that every child is teachable. Each child has a story that is waiting to be heard. An effective educator not only learns that story, but also finds ways to educate in spite of that story. Here at PKT, we are committed to working with each individual to help him/her reach his or her fullest potential. I am confident in our ability to be an asset to your child’s educational future. I look forward with anticipation to hearing from you soon to discuss the many ways in which PhillipsKidsTutoring, LLC can make a significant difference in your child’s academic performance.

Teaching children karate for over 45 years. Youth classes are offered in a fun, safe environment to children ages 4 and up of all fitness levels. Karate is a fun, engaging activity which burns tons of energy while teaching children self-defense and situational awareness. Beyond health benefits, training karate can also increase your child’s ability to focus and develop their self-confidence. Karate is a fun, healthy activity, and it also teaches interpersonal skills that can be used in all areas of life. Classes usually begin with warm up exercises and stretching. Then, kids learn how to perform basic techniques (blocks, kicks, punches, etc.) with proper form, speed and power. Students also learn forms, or kata, a series of set movements designed to defend against imaginary attackers. Training kata develops coordination, memory and discipline. Partner work is also an important component of training, during which students work with each other to develop their techniques with a target in a controlled setting. This type of training develops respect for others and their ability to work together. Bring your child to try a class! Please arrive fifteen minutes before class begins to complete an intake form. Please have him or her wear comfortable […]

Fete Formula: Kids’ Party Planning Guide
Parties — they’re all fun and games until you have to plan and execute them yourself, right? Naturally, many aspects of planning a party for kids are quite different from planning one for adults, but the key to success for either one is, of course, organization. In addition to budget and guest list, deciding on the location of the party is crucial to getting the planning process started. Whether you choose a DIY event at home, or find a party place with less heavy lifting for the host or hostess, we can help you out with some great local options. RENTING A FACILITY Having your event away from your house at a party facility means someone else does the prep work, keeps the party moving, and takes care of the clean up. Prices and packages vary, so be very sure you’re clear on exactly what the facility will and won’t provide, and if there’s additional cost per extra kid, who didn’t RSVP, but showed up anyway! Here are some cool local party places to consider: Adventure Quest Laser Tag (Harahan) 1200 South Clearview Parkway (504) 207-4444; www.lasertagnola.com All-Star Gymnastics (Harvey) 2073 Bonn St (504) 328-3838; http://allstargymla.com/ Art Time (Mandeville) 705 […]
Beyond Team Sports: Cool Extracurriculars for Kids
While there’s plenty of debate over how much is too much, most people can agree that some sort of extracurricular activity is good for kids. Why? It cuts down on electronics, builds confidence, relieves stress, teaches time management (where homework is concerned), and it expands their horizons by allowing them to explore various interests. There are certainly plenty of opportunities for kids to participate in team sports after school and on weekends, but what about the non-sports kids, or kids who want or need more variety? We’ve put together a whole bunch of “beyond team sports” options to explore on both shores, including indoor sports, academics, performing arts, martial arts, and more. Be sure to check their websites for registration periods and deadlines — and don’t forget to check on holiday camps. That season is going to pop up quicker than we think!

And then there is the lagniappe of extra opportunities that Toni provides during the year that extend our reach into the community. All in all, a value that can’t be beat! Kaye Harris, Owner, Pony Tales
Since my very first ad I have been satisfied with my ad in Kids & Family New Orleans! I still have people that pick up the magazine and call to book an appointment while sitting in the doctor’s office. People come to my shop just to get their copies too. Mrs. Toni has always been very helpful and supportive. I am a customer for life! – Katy Medina, Owner: Children’s Hair Palace
I have been a customer of Kids & Family New Orleans ever since I owned Kid to Kid. I find it to be the most effective, reliable, and affordable form of advertising. The service and support is excellent. I would recommend Kids & Family. Ann Dyer, Kid to Kid Owner
I find it very reliable, dependable, and even more advantageous than Yellow P! (In fact, I even was able to cancel Yellow P!) Been a customer for almost the whole 20 years! Am always happy to “go the extra mile” for KD and its public events. The magazine, the all-encompassing “infomercial” for Children’s entities, covers a lot of ground. Geography-wise ….and material-wise. So very glad to “be a part!’– Uncle Wayne- Porta Puppet Players
I use it for kid-friendly services as well as for ideas for “field trips” with my children. I also find ideas for birthday parties and other activities for my children – and for myself. Jennifer J.
This publication is so very helpful for me and my little one! Weekends are the only time we have to spend together and this manual is our savior. It’s free to pick up at the doctor’s office or shops on Magazine St. We also save on coupons and find out about all the little secret spots and places that others don’t have a clue about! We were also featured in an issue through Healthy Start New Orleans! Amazing Issues and great help. This book is perfect. Like a little kids manual! Ashley L.
I always look through your magazine for activities for my daughter and for what to do on the weekend and on our off days. The most recent being Boo Koo Bounce in Elmwood – boy did we have a blast.
I love your magazine and all of the places it informs me of that my daughter and I can take part in. Tia L.
I can’t describe how helpful New Orleans Kids & Family has been. I have a son born in October which means it is usually cold, so I tried to find an indoor place (besides my home) that I could have his 2nd birthday party. I found Gymrompers! The party was a hit and everyone loved it! If it was not for your publication I would have never found that place. Your publication gives me great ideas every year. I have 3 children so I am planning often. Thanks! Onikah C.
Use your publication for party ideas, cakes, and summer activities for my son. It’s avaluable and informative resource that really fills a void for children’s activities. I tell everyone I know about it. Casey L.
Since my pregnancy I used it a lot to find doctors, 4d ultrasound places and after that I have been using it to find children’s clothing stores, photography and much more. Almost every advertisement in the magazine is helpful for me and actually I always use it online because is more convenient. I think it is a very interesting magazine especially the kid’s activities the magazine advertises are awesome. I hope you are always around to keep helping parents like me. Daniella O.
The book helps me plan for birthday parties and fieldtrips for my school and myself. I love this book!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot. Kristie W.
