About Us

Atomic Family is the parenting magazine for Atlanta families who don’t fit the traditional mold – blended, gay, bi-racial, adoptive, tattooed, pierced, just different …

Our content

We focus on the cool and edgy stuff for parents in the metro Atlanta area. We strive to highlight events that are out-of-the-ordinary, music that won’t drive parents crazy, and people and places who are doing extraordinary things in our community. We feature the coolest toys and offer tips for everything from going green to having fun!

Several times a week, we publish music and book reviews, worthy events, and interesting features and interviews.

Then each quarter, a new “issue” appears on the site. Included will be our regular features such as Featured Family (Q&A with family), Mama Rules and Daddy Rocks (focusing on parents), Artsy Fartsy (do-it-yourself cooking, crafts, etc.), Media Mania (CD, book and website reviews), Dining Out (mini-reviews of local restaurants), and our humor and going green columns.
