URGENT: this is technically the last weekend of summer 😎😭so we have an important order. GET YOUR SPIKED SELTZER HATS ON! Why? Because it's the official drink of Summer 2019. 🥤 . This is according to @businessinsider. For anyone who thinks spiked Seltzer takes like garbage water, you can reflect on past winners 🏅. Aperol Spritz last summer and while basic in appearance... it's sometimes nice to see a familiar face in Rose, which took home the Summer 2017 honors. Which drink out of these would you choose?! Happy weekend🥂 . . . #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #spikedseltzer #whiteclaw #drinksofsummer #aperolspritz #rose #basic #cheers #endofsummer #sayitaintso #businessinsider #cheers #cheerstotheweekend

There I sat, presumably being judged by passers-by for not helping her out of this. And yet, she insisted she was NOT stuck and did NOT need my help, and screamed like an absolute lunatic if I tried to untangle her. This went on for a while, until she finally toppled forward, bumped her head, cried for 1.2 seconds, then laughed in my face while running back to do it all over again 🤔 🤷🏼‍♀️ #aurelialake #almost2 #knowseverything and #candoitbyherself

OK lets talk about some of the frustrations of city parenting. One things we hear from families who've decided to move away has to do with kid sports ⚽🥎🏀🏈🎾🏏⛸️⛳. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We hear from a lot of former city families that the facilities, options and cost are friendlier outside urban landscapes and that eventually became a deal breaker. What do you guys think? For families who have older kids is this true? Has anyone been contemplating moving away because of sports? What else is frustrating about life in the city? #iamcitykin ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #sports #kidsports #urbansports #youthsports #cityathletics #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #soccer #soccerpitch #brooklyn #brooklynsports

Sa’iyda Shabazz, a single mom who writes honest, in-your-face raw essays about her life, much of it dealing with her financial troubles as a single mom is not alone in her $$💰💰 woes. According to a @nytparenting survey, so many parents are silently living on the financial cliff of despair..but no one is talking about it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "There are so many of us that are one paycheck away, one accident away, one wrong move away from really being in trouble. But we’re afraid to admit it. People don’t want to confront the fact that it’s not the individual’s fault, it’s the system’s failings.” When she couldn't afford childcare for her child, her only option as a freelancer was to keep him at home. Does financial stress as a parent keep you up at night? Does it stop you from having another child even? We'd love to hear your thoughts on it 👇🏾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #nytparenting #singlemom #singledad #singleparent #moneyproblems #moneywoes #childcare #costofparenting #costofchildcare #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin

The New York mayor 🗽is proposing to eliminate all G & T programs in the city. And no, he's not overhauling the gin and tonic 🍸 scene #phew #badjoke but the "Gifted and Talented" programs in the public school system. Considered by many cray NY parents to be the pinnacle of educational achievement👨🏻‍🎓, greater even than admission to an elite private school, it's a system -according to many - that keeps the school system segregated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our child is in the spider man mask and we did apply and get into our neighborhood's G&T programs✏️. We also paid for eight weeks of "puzzle class" but really it was a class designed to get my then 4-year-old comfortable with the test. We were not blind to the irony of calling my son "gifted" when at the end of the day he was just better prepared than the other select group of (mostly white) kids who even opted to take the test. Ultimately we ended up not sending him to either program that he tested into because the makeup of the class was not reflective of the diverse Brooklyn community we live in and that bothered us. . Ironically, the principal of a school spoke to us "gifted" parents one day and told us off the bat, "if you think you're child is gifted let me tell you something...they're not." Me and @ollyjjones smiled but many of the parents did not. BECAUSE DAMMIT THEIR CHILD WAS GIFTED. It's a flawed program in a flawed system. However, we're all about educational choice and freedom. Does your city have G & T programs? What are your thoughts on the merits of having them?

These seesaws were built across the US- Mexico border so children could play. (We'll give you a moment to get your tissue 💦) Artist @rrael installed this exhibit in an area that is associated with enormous political charge and where the sound of laughter is not something you would expect to hear. . But that's exactly what you do hear, kids laughing as they realize that one action affects the other even though they are on opposite sides of the fence. No matter if it's a border line or a city wall, we're better off getting to understand the other side and mixing with different types of people. What were your reactions to the seesaw pic?!

Walking through cities is basically one giant art lesson if you look around. Almost 40 years ago, Keith Haring @keithharingfoundation painted a mural on a giant slab of concrete at the corner of Houston and Bowery.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Haring chose this slab of cement for its central location in the middle of an emerging downtown art scene 👩‍🎨, and because it was on the direct walking route for artists traveling back and forth between SoHo and the Lower East Side. Now referred to as The Bowery Wall, you'll have to see this gorgeous mural by Queen Andrea @queenandreaone to really believe it. #seewhatwedidthere. The mural changes regularly and different artists come do their street art thang🖍️🖌️🎨🙌⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cities can get a bad cleanliness rep (OK maybe only NYC 🤦🏾‍♂️) but at least they step up their public art game!

When's the last time you went to the most touristy spot in your home city?🗼 🏢🗽 It's so easy to get frustrated with the swaths of people who come visit your city in the summertime making everything more crowded and not keeping up with your sidewalk WALKING PACE (Even though you're definitely doing the same thing in another city! #busted) but maybe you should take a page from their guide book. . ✳️ Yesterday Citykin hit up the Dumbo Waterfront, brunch at a hotel @jwmessexhouse and Central Park 🏙️. We even hit up the concierge desk to get the insider scoop on what parts of Central Park were worth seeing because embarrassingly we have never really taken the kids there. Takeaway was that while we were crazy dumb to be outside for hours in 100 degree heat...Central Park is pretty amazing and it took ALL the willpower to not hop on a double decker bus. #hereforit.

Gulp. Anyone else read this opening paragraph below and silently weep in understanding?! The article sums it up as such - Raising a family in the city is hard and cities are "entertainment machines" increasingly reserved for only the "young, rich, and mostly childless." It's a shame because cities are amazing places to raise families but are we being priced out? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Every so often descending the stairway, I would catch a glimpse of a particular family with young children in its Sisyphean attempts to reach the fourth floor. The mom would fold the stroller to the size of a boogie board, then drag it behind her with her right hand, while cradling the younger and typically crying child in the crook of her left arm. Meanwhile, she would shout hygiene instructions in the direction of the older child, who would slap both hands against every other grimy step to use her little arms as leverage, like an adult negotiating the bolder steps of Machu Picchu. It looked like hell."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #theatlantic #costofliving #pricedout #richplayground #cities #urbanlife #citykin #sayitaintso

We are back! The Citykin team was traveling far and wide so we opted to properly disconnect. We thought we'd dive back into your feed with a hit list of the BOW-TO-THE-DOWN glorious city of Lisbon, Portugal . Main conclusion is: RUN. Do not walk to this budget-friendly, people are OMG-SO-NICE, beautiful, sophisticated city. Highlights in no particular order: . . . ✳️ The Timeout Market. Can't decide what you should eat? THEN DON'T. Just get it allll. . ✳️ Have a wide range of kid ages? Pay for a tuk tuk tour where you get an insider look at Lisbon and you don't have to carry anything #yesplease ✳️ The Alfama District is not stroller friendly as it's windy, cobblestone roads that are mostly uphill. But it's where you stumble upon some of the cutest little bars, shops and food stands so it's a must (we learned the hard way!) ✳️ If you're wanting to tap into your inner hipster (we don't judge!) RUN to the LX Factory, an old industrial section of Lisbon that is now comprised of street art, cool stores and live music. Moustaches and beards APPLY. . ✳️ Lisbon eats dinner late so if you're super rigid about sleep and napping, try not to be! When in Lisbon. . ✳️ Pastéis de Nata are the custard tarts that's basically a national treasure. You can never eat too many of them. ✳️ Lisbon is super close to other amazing cities (like Sintra, an amazing mountain town) so be sure to take daytrips if possible. . ✳️ Portugal has the charm of Italy coast towns without the prices, the warmth of European hospitality without the snootiness as they are still not as "popular" as other destinations and the food, culture and beauty of other more popular destinations (COUGH COUGH France.) ✳️Have you been to Portugal? What European cities are you traveling to this summer? . . . #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #globaltravel #portugal #travelwithkids #passports #europeanvacation #lisbon

Where are you priding this weekend?! It's the final weekend for pride month and a common parenting question to us is: should I bring my kid to the parade? One sec let us think...HELL YES! 🌈 . We hunker down in cities because we value diversity and exposing our kids to different types of people. What is more diverse than a Pride parade?! Link in bio for a Citykin guide on what to do with your kids this weekend in a few cities. Comment below what you're doing this weekend! 💃💃🏾#iamcitykin . . . #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #prideweek #pride #pride🌈 #nypride #londonpride #citypride #diversity #citizensoftheworld #humanrights

@orbitz did a market research thing and these are the top most visited US cities for pride festivities 🌈 based on travel searches, flight prices and hotel inventory during pride season. Loving that some of the big city guns are being passed up by places like Provincetown, MA?! Go Smalltown USA.⠀🇺🇸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More and more cities are holding pride celebrations months earlier (or later) to avoid scorching heat—and competing with bigger cities. The seaside town on the southernmost tip of Cape Cod has been a popular gay destination for more than 60 years. In fact, P-Town's queer bona fides are so ingrained, it only held its first Pride celebration last year. Because "Everyday is Pride Day" according to people who go there. AMEN TO THAT!!! How are you celebrating Pride Month? #iamcitykin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #pride #chicagopride #pridemonth #happypride #orbitzpride #prideparade #prideguide #travel #travelgram #instatravel #lgbtqtravel #provincetownpride #celebratepride

When we came across Ted, a Philly dad who was the primary caregiver for his twins when they were born we were just excited to meet a dad who TRULY understood the monotony, exhaustion and feelings of overwhelm that is typically only reserved for new moms on mat leave. When Ted told us about his big idea he had while hanging with his park mom crew and how that idea is now a company called @hicolugo that is being called the “Warby Parker of strollers” we knew we had met a Citykin after our own heart.

For so many families, the exodus of moving to the suburbs to live the "American Dream" with their 2.5 kids 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 👶, 🐕 , and white picket fence is a thing of the past. They’re trading in the backyard, garage, and minivan for balconies, a doorman, and @citibike 🚴🚴‍♀️ with no regrets. . On this episode, I'm joined by Patrice Poltzer @ppoltzer, a bonafide city mom who's got raising kids in the city down to a science. . She is a former award-winning @todayshow producer who covered the gamut of stories from the refugee crisis to @todayparents. She is the founder of Patrice Poltzer Creative, a video production house for telling brand stories, and @city_kin, a parenting site that celebrates raising kids in the city by way of advice, community, and inspiration for families around the world.

News flash: summer ☀️is basically here and we know what you're thinking..."WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY KIDS?!" This sculpture is all of us parents right now. But you have until the end of June to RUN to @rockcenternyc where you will see the coolest public sculptures and street art ever. Massive pieces of art like this are sprinkled throughout Midtown and we're here for it.🎨🖌️ . Frieze Sculpture is a major new public art initiative by @friezeartfair and it will give you that warm fuzzy feeling in Midtown...which until now we didn't think possible except for Christmas time. Citykin parents @vivekjayaram and @wheilbut are taking in this beauty sans kids.

It's the neverending hunt of a city parent: when the temperature gets hot, WHERE DO YOU POOL?! 🐳🐟Unlike our suburban counterparts, owning a pool in the often elusive urban backyard is a non-starter 🏡. Even having outdoor space for a blow-up pool is basically baller status in some cities (HI NYC & SF🙋.) . The long, hot holiday weekend had Citykin's @ppoltzer and her family searching for water loving at every turn. First up was the NYC version of the backyard pool--the rooftop pool at Dumbo House @sohohousenewyork #swoon. Then came the splash pool at @brooklynbridgepark which was a tranquil, zen experience in a small patch of rockscape shared with 798 other families who had the exact same sentiment. Extraction of your kid is all but impossible. #godspeed 🥺🥺😬😩 They ended the weekend with the classic...a park with a built-in spray system. Basically our city version of the inflatable backyard pool.

A generation or two ago, the wealthy fled to the burbs for "a better, safer environment" but that's not the case anymore. Today, families are choosing to hunker down in the cities even with larger families. . The @nytimes wrote about "The Suburbs Are Coming to a City Near You" this past weekend and it gave us mixed feelings. Most city people don't want the burbs 🏡 coming to the city. ANOTHER generic retailer (looking at you @michaelsstores, @marshalls & @chickfila ) no thanks. But cost of living in cities 🏢 is going up so the shops that give a city its unique character and vibrancy can't afford the rents. However, large roof decks with grass...HERE FOR IT. Is the city still a city if urban living is a luxury good?! 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷‍♀️🤷🏾‍♂️ What parts of burb life do you welcome or not welcome for the city?

Hope everyone had an amazing Mother's Day🌹The highs, lows, negotiations for candy sharing and the scary feelings of "OMG HOW IS POSSIBLE TO ❤️ SO HARD!?" are universal to all moms...but momming in a city can present unique challenges. (Subway 🚇 stairs with a stroller anyone!? 🙄) . The idea for Citykin started when @dallia_h was on mat leave with her second kid and Patrice had just left corporate America to start a video marketing company. Autonomy of time allowed them to hang and brainstorm about creative projects. One day @ppoltzer was lamenting at how outdated and "mom-centric" parenting content was (dads she knew were super involved), all the while helping Dallia jenga up her walkup while she lugged her stroller, 5 bags, a baby, toddler and ALL the other things. Where was parenting content for us city parents?! WELL WE HERE! And thanks for following along with us. We're just getting started! Who is your favorite city family to follow?

Houston, we still have a problem.⚠️ Divison of labor in the home is where the gender inequities start and the ladies are continually losing the battle. ♀️ This has real ramifications when women get to the professional stage. At the rate we're going, it will be another 75 years before men do half the work. Here's why Citykin cares: city families tend to have both mom and dad working outside the home...yet the ladies are picking up the domestic drudgery slack 🛒🧺🧽and we are losing mental, physical and financial health over it. . Admittedly, we perhaps naively assumed city dads do more (domestically speaking) than their burb counterparts because stereotypical gender roles tend to be more on display outside the city. Citykin's @ollyjjones is a domestic deity and has passed on the love affair to his boys (#blessup)👼 and Citykin's @drumm012 can run vacuum circles around @dallia_h. Is this the norm in your households? Do you resent your partner because you're also working outside the home yet do ALL the things at home too? Do you think city dads do more on this front?

Dear Suburban Minivan 🏡, your time may be up. ⏰ You're not imagining things...more families are choosing to not make the obligatory burb move after they have kids. We spoke at @socialmediaweek this week in NYC and basically body surfed up to the stage after we heard @mattbrittonnyc talk about how Millennials are raising kids. HINT: it doesn't involve a private backyard swingset. . We want experiences.🌍 🧗‍♀️ Not stuff. Bars and restaurants around the corner.🍷🍝 Not extra rooms to fill with...more stuff. We want mobility and convenience. 🚄 Not gas guzzlers to load up carseats in just to get milk.

If there is a silent partner in issues around infertility it tends to be the man. While women can feel stigma, there is way more support systems in place for them to seek help. Often men have nowhere to turn other than their partners (which is not always helpful) or the doctors (who probably aren't going to grab a beer 🍺and make you laugh about it at the very least. ) . Today on the site a dad anonymously tells us about his struggle to have a family. (It ended well for him! 🙏) We asked him to put his name to the essay but he wasn't ready, mainly because no one knew from his work. Indicating there is much work to be done in Corporate America as it relates to this issue.

This week is National Infertility Week and we know many of you are struggling with this...and don't talk about it. 😔 We want to highlight one of our favorite Citykin couples, @dylandreyernbc and @fishlense who work at the @todayshow and discussed their struggle with secondary infertility on the show this week (an even lesser discussed issue) after struggling to conceive another child after Calvin. . Dylan told Brian earlier this year, "I think I lost the baby" after massive bleeding weeks after getting a positive pregnancy test. Brain said to her, "You didn't lose the baby. It's your body doing what it needs to do. YOU didn't do anything wrong." . Brian continually reminding us why he was our first Citykin dad crush on the account. Remind yourself today you never know what people are going through. Even if it looks shiny and bright on the outside, everyone struggles in one way or another. One of the biggest reasons for second child infertility is age and parents who live in larger, costlier cities 🏙🌁🌆 tend to start having kids later in life...so it's definitley an issue close to our citykin hearts. ❤ Wishing all of you a virtual hug if you are also struggling to have the family of your dreams. 🙏 #iamcitykin . . . #cityparents #cityliving #cityfam #citykids #citykin #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #cityfamily #urbanlife #urbanfamily #infertility #nationalinfertilityweek #todayshow #inspiration

How would you feel if strangers on the street or the train came up and touched your child’s hair? 🥺This was the reality for London mum Puja @misspuj and her husband. It gave them so much anxiety they recently chopped off ✂️their son’s gorgeous curls...but felt really sad about the whole experience. . In this week's powerful essay Puja, who is in a mixed race marriage and has experienced racism in her own community, opens up why touching her son’s hair has a deeper, more disturbing connotation about the realities of melting pot city living.

One of the amazing things about city living is being surrounded by and often living on the same block as once-in-a-lifetime talent. From musicians 🎼to activists ⚖ to writers 📖 to artists 🖌...cities are ground zero for breeding the next generations of talent. This is @oliverjeffers. A Brooklyn dad, children's author (he did THAT crayon 🖍 book that is currently in your kid's bedroom) sculpturist, painter, artist, illustrator and parallel parking interpreter. . Living among creatives at the rate city kids get to should never be taken for granted. It is a privilege. It is awesome. It could be the reason your child imagines he or she can write or sculpt or paint or imagine big possibilites...because when you see it all around you, your dreams just become the reality. Who in your city do you consider a creative treasure?!

Anyone else taken aback at how sad you were today to see one of the world's greatest treasures up in flames? Notre Dame, a landmark you didn't even realize you take for granted as it's always "just there"...until it's not. Or almost not. It's as if Notre Dame is telling the world that if you don't respect and care for places and metaphorically people, even the oldest and strongest of ones will still crumble. #iamcitykin . . . #cityparents #france #notredame #nationaltreasure #worldweeps #french #cityliving #cityfam #cityfamily #urbanparenting #citykin #citykids #citylife #globalparenting #globalcitizens #cities #urbanlife #citykin #cathedral #fire
