It’s time to ring in the new academic year with the September issue of beijingkids. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up back-to-school threads yet, don’t fret: September is all about hitting the shops – and coming out on top.
In Feature, we demystify Taobao with a step-by-step guide to registering, searching, and paying for products. We also scour Beijing for the best clothing stores for babies, kids, and teens, as well as baby essentials and the all-elusive maternity wear. Got a birthday party coming up? We’ve got a practical and affordable gift-giving guide complete with tips and ideas.
In Living, we introduce a new column called Talking Shop to spotlight interesting and family-friendly boutiques around Beijing. The inaugural edition features Zian Print and Graphics and Samantha Crafts, both located in charming Fangjia Hutong. In Indulge, we bring back parent makeovers with mom and Montessori trainee Keli Dias.
As your kids will return to school, so do the cooties! We ask health professionals from Beijing United Family Hospital and International SOS how to ward off common infectious diseases. However, Dr. Richard Saint Cyr reminds readers that not all germs are bad, while nutritionist Olivia Lee urges parents to go beyond modeling good food behaviors.
In Learning, CCTV weather presenter Danni Huang goes cloud-spotting with students from Harrow International School Beijing, and The Learning Center fills September’s Blank Canvas. For a special edition of The Roundtable, we ask returning university students about college drinking culture.
