Sonshine is a quarterly magazine taking a positive slant on parenting sons, to create a better world for all our children.

The story behind the business
Meet Sonshine Magazine

When my daughter was born, I found plenty of parenting advice to help me raise the strong girl I wanted her to become. But when my son arrived, I quickly realised I had no blueprint for raising a boy in today’s society, and I couldn’t find anything to help me.

So I started to write the articles I wanted to read. I wrote online pointing out the stereotypes that were affecting our sons in different ways to our daughters: clothes, books, kids’ TV – anywhere I saw gendered messages limiting our kids.

People kept asking if I would make a printed magazine, so I took the leap. I found a brilliant designer, worked with writers and illustrators and found a sustainable printer in Wales. Before I knew it I’d founded my own magazine! Sonshine now is the resource I needed to help me raise my kids for today's society and to make a better world for both of them.
