From the March 2015 issue

Sophia, March 2015 Metro Parent CoverKid – VIDEO

Not just any kid could pull off waterworks for a photo for the cover of a magazine. But Sophia, 8, of Dearborn Heights is definitely that kid! Energetic and dramatic in all the right ways, this budding thespian captured a tricky emotion with finesse, charm and a lot of laughter.

Why’d we want a kid to cry? To complement the subject of our cover story of our March 2015 issue of Metro Parent, which focused on parenting a sensitive child. Get a behind-the-scenes peek at how we helped her get a little bit teary-eyed. Plus, Sophia shares her singing chops (another talent!) and dishes a bit about her own sensitive little brother:

 

For a second year, Metro Parent teamed up with MESP (that’s the Michigan Education Savings Plan) to host our CoverKids contest – and invest in local kids’ futures. Think of MESP as a 401(k), only for your child’s college, vs. your retirement. The money you put in it is tax-free, thanks to its federal “529” status. You can start one up with just $25, and contribute as little as $15 per pay period. There’s no limit to how much you add annually, though the max account balance is $235,000. Your kid can ultimately use the cash for tuition, room and board, and other college costs.
