PB Parenting is Palm Beach County’s local parenting resource. Felonice Merriman, publisher and owner, started the publication 5 years ago when she noticed that there was a lack of information on where to take her 18 month daughter around in the new county she had just moved to. No stranger to the media, Merriman has worked at various publications since 1999 including Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers and Treasure Coast Parenting.
Over the past 5 years, PB Parenting has grown from 2,500 copies to now 15,000 and is distributed to almost 800 family friendly locations all over Palm Beach County from Tequesta down to Boca Raton.
Along the way, Merriman picked up a couple other savvy moms including associate publisher, Jennifer Preville, who worked in advertising for Ladies Home Journal and Seventeen Magazine. The teaming up of Merriman on the creative side and Preville on the business side created an even stronger publication. Parents turn to PB Parenting to find out about Summer Camps (including their annual expo hosted at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium), Party Planning, Mommy and Me, After School Enrichments and more! PB Parenting is a high quality go-to guide for moms-on-the-go and “diaper bag friendly” with the digest size.
PB Parenting is a parent-driven local publication. We are working, driving to school and looking for resources for our children and yours right here in Palm Beach County. Merriman has 3 children, and Preville has 2 children. We have recently added Senior Account Executive, Kennedy Johnson (mom of 2), graphic designer, Stephanie Davis (mom of 2) to our staff and as well as writer Samantha Clark (mom of 4). Plus each month the latest issue arrives thanks to a dedicated team of distribution drivers who are also all moms and grandparents! So you can be sure all of our content is dedicated to families with children, our staff has a combined total of 22 children/grandchildren!
