In 1979, free-lance writer Jack Bierman was trying to decide whether to start a specialized magazine for truckers or for parents. He chose parents. It was a good choice, because while few yuppies have become truckers, many are having babies. They have embraced the roles of superparents. And their disposable incomes have fueled a surge in retail sales for baby clothing stores, baby furniture shops, even baby gymnasiums--all businesses that would advertise in Bierman's magazine.

Re "They scamper, we stalk," Column One, May 9 This informative article about the rodent problem in Los Angeles unfortunately left out the intense suffering these mammals experience as a result of poisoning and, even worse, glue traps. These smart, resourceful animals scream and will chew off limbs and skin in an attempt to escape the traps. They ultimately die of starvation or dehydration -- sometimes it takes days -- if they are not fortunate enough to be found and dispatched sooner.

Question: What's wrong with this picture? You're right--nothing. Next question: what's wrong with people who think there's something wrong with this picture? Ah, now you're on to something. L.A. Parent, on whose February cover this picture appears, is a monthly magazine whose quarter-million or so copies are distributed free, at pediatricians' offices, kids' stores, preschools, day care centers and at private and a few public schools from L.A. to San Diego.

When his daughters were 5 and 2, one doctor developed a four-pronged defense system for dining with restless children. "The first line of defense is give them crackers to eat. When they're bored with that, you give them crackers with butter on them. If they're still not behaving, then it's time for Step 3, crackers with butter and a little sugar on top. The final defense--just hand them an open sugar packet and let them go at it.

These last 10 years as founding editor in chief of L.A. Parent might have been preparation enough for just about any new publishing venture Jack Bierman chose to undertake.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who like to refresh themselves by getting away from it all and those who seek renewal in groups.

The current elevated birth rate may rank as a mere boomlet when measured against the Baby Boom of the 1950s and 1960s, but you wouldn't know it from the echoes reverberating in the child-care magazine business. No fewer than five major new national magazines aimed at parents are in the final planning or early distribution stages, and perhaps two dozen regional parent-oriented tabloids have sprung up in the last five years.

You can find them almost anywhere--mysteriously slipped under your door while you sleep, or secretly stashed by grocers between the pickles and mayonnaise in your shopping bag. Some consider them charming; others treat them like litter. Whatever their reception, community newspapers, commonly called rags, are gaining ground in the San Fernando Valley.
