When you sit down to your Thanksgiving meal and give thanks for all your blessings, give a moment to appreciate this amazing and diverse city we live in.  It’s the perfect place to raise kids!  We polled our writers to find out what they’re most grateful for about being parents in LA, then add in your two cents.  Then get out there and enjoy the sunshine, arts, culture, ocean and food that we all love.

Love the Languages!

I'm thankful that there are so many cultures represented in Los Angeles. It's not uncommon for us to hear five different languages spoken on any given day. Just today? Spanish, Greek, Hebrew, Tagalog (Philippines) and Korean!
