Editorial Policy is valid from January 1, 2015

dsm4kids newsletters and blog posts are about activities, attractions, classes, events, etc., that the owner thinks are fun for families to do together in the Des Moines metro area. This content is not paid for.  So if you have an event, activity, business or story idea please make sure it is relevant to the market (i.e. local distribution).

We’re not really into product reviews. However, we will accept services, travel expenses, and event tickets to family friendly destinations throughout the state of Iowa.

When you see advertising in the newsletter or on the site, it will be clearly labeled “sponsor,” “sponsored content” or “dedicated email.” Advertisers do not have any extra say in what we cover editorially. Though we love our advertisers, we want our dear readers to trust that we’re sending them unbiased tidbits of local happenings and events.

Please note, while we make every effort to ensure the most accurate, up-to-date information, we are not responsible for inaccuracies that may occur. We would like to correct them for future updates, however, so please notify us at if you find an error.
