Calgary's Child on Global Calgary Morning News

For parenting tips and updates from local experts, don't miss the Calgary's Child Magazine Parenting Segment on the  Global Calgary Morning News Show every Monday morning! Each segment has a different guest and topic, and our segment airs at approximately 8:25am.

Monday, September 24
Guest: Nicole Inglis, Health Promotion Facilitator, Teaching Sexual Health, Alberta Health Services
Topic: Teaching your child about their sexual health and sexuality is part of your role as a parent. While you may have concerns about talking with your child about sexual health when they are young, remember, sexual health is not just about sex. Sexual health includes a person’s physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. It includes things like hygiene, understanding emotions, healthy relationships, and consent. Not sure how to begin this crucial conversation with your child? Tune in for expert tips! 

Tuesday, September 25 (this segment is at 7:45am instead of 8:25am)
Guest: Judy Arnall, Parenting/Education Conultant & Local Author, Professional Parenting
Topic: If your child's time spent on screens is getting out of control, it’s time to reassert your right as a parent to raise your child in a healthy way. Tune in for Judy's expert advice on how to use a screentime negotiation contract with your child and stick to it! As a parent, it's our responsibility to help our child use screens wisely.
