Do you want to have families at your convention and be considered family friendly? Is there child care for little ones? Kids programming? Safe Teen Spaces? Where will you hold these things? What regulations should you be aware of in dealing with children in your convention spaces. Can you make your hotel more family friendly (special menus)? Are you prepared to have your arrangements settled far enough in advance so that parents can make decisions regarding being on program and having their children entertained? What will all this cost?

Our panelists are not just convention runners but also parents of children of various age groups! Between us we've run childcare at Worldcons, kids programming at local and regional conventions, dealt with not knowing what to do with our kids if on panels and experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of conventions and parenting. We have tips for conventions runners and parents alike!
