Formed in 2006, MYSU Company, LLC is a small independent publisher based in Arlington, Massachusetts USA. Being small and independent, we have complete creative and editorial control over the magazine. We are driven by the desire to produce a magazine like no other and to be worthy of a busy parent's time. The majority of our team are parents. Some even work free due to their dedication to the magazine's passion and mission.
SK Joun, a mother of two, founded the Parents for Parents™ magazine in 2006 after being frustrated by the lack of publications or resources that discussed parenting topics in depth in a language and format that she could easily understand and easily access. The existing magazines provided information in too general terms and expert books were too technical and too long! She found parents to be the best experts and the best resources, but could not find a forum where parents shared information in a collective manner attacking one topic at a time. She resigned from her corporate job of 15 years, started a publishing company, and created the Parents for Parents™ magazine!
