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 between 8:15 and 8:45am.

Monday, June 24
Guest: Nicole Herrmann, WASHED + WORN (curated kids consignment)
Topic: Camp can be costly. Add on the extra cost of camp clothing and the necessary outerwear to keep your little camper warm at night, and the expense of sending your kid to camp can really add up! But it doesn't have to. Enter WASHED +WORN, a pre-loved kids consignment store! Tune in for Nicole's top picks of kid's camp- and budget-friendly clothing. Reused never looked so good! 

Monday, July 1
There will be no Global Morning Show. 

Monday, July 8
Guest: Nicki Brown, Calgary's Child Magazine
Topic: Let's face it, summer can be expensive. With a rodeo, plenty of food, bevvies, and lots of activities to partake in, funds can deplete rather quickly. That's why we've put together our top family-friendly festivities that won't cost you a penny. Nothing. Nada. Your family can still have tons of fun and be frugal at the same time. Tune in for Nicki's top picks for July summer fun! 

Monday, July 15
Guest:
Soraya Lakhani, R. Psych., Yellow Kite Psychology
Topic:
Summer is in full swing and although we imagine our kids spending these warm days playing in the great outdoors, the reality is, many kids - especially tweens and teens - will be playing their video games indoors. Looking for ways to tame your child's game? Tune in for Soraya's expert advice.

Calgary Stampede Celebrity Pancake Challenge.
> Friday Jul 12, 2019 at 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Calgarians are invited to attend a special celebrity challenge at the Macleod Trail Co-op’s annual Stampede breakfast to help the Breakfast Club of Canada feed local kids in need. Dave Bohati, Executive Chef of Murietta’s Bar and Grill, will host a special celebrity challenge at which two surprise guests will create two special pancake recipes to be put to the taste test. In honour of the event, the Co-op Community Foundation, Danone Canada and members of the public will make a special donation to allow the Breakfast Club of Canada to open a new school chapter in Calgary that will provide children with a healthy breakfast during the upcoming school year. Stampede breakfasts spotlight the pleasure of a hearty morning meal enjoyed with family and friends, but for too many local children, this ritual is not an everyday reality. The Breakfast Club of Canada serves over 1.3 million school breakfasts to children in need across Alberta every year, at 127 school-based ‘Clubs.’ However, the need remains great: 118 Alberta schools are on the Club’s waiting list. The goal of the July 12 Stampede breakfast is to make a tangible long-term difference in the lives of local children.
