WHAT OUR READERS ARE SAYING
Congratulations on an outstanding magazine! I picked up my 1st issue in store and was taken aback by how captivating the articles were. Keep it up!
I would like to thank you for publishing articles on disabled children. As a mum of twin boys with cerebral palsy, I have often wondered why there is so little available for parents going through this walk of life… I can only hope and encourage that you continue articles of this kind as it made me pick up your magazine, and what a relief to know other mothers who are going through this will be able to relate and know that they are not on their own.”
I was watching your TV show towards the end of April and I was taken aback, fascinated by the content of the show, your guests and the way they handled questions that were posed to them. Fantastic! The magazines are also a lot more informative, taking into consideration the fact that my wife and I are young parents who have so far managed to raise a three-year-old, smart boy, Neo Moshoete. I can tell you now that we have followed some of the tips about parenting that were on your website and some of them came from the previous issues of Mamas & Papas magazine – realistic and brilliant tips, I must say! Keep it up Nawaal! Mamas & Papas is really becoming a media empire! We can’t wait to see the next issue.”
