#NoPhoneFamilyDay

#30day30challenge (February 1 – March 1)

It’s time to break free from your screen (and yes, we totally get the irony that you are reading this on a screen!) For the month of February, we are challenging you and your family to participate in our 30 minutes a day challenge (screen free!), the perfect opportunity to reconnect with yourself and your family. We’re doing our part by providing you with daily prompts and challenges to keep you on track and motivated on our social media channels.

Keep us up to date with how the challenge is going for you – what your struggles are, what your successes are, and what you’re surprised to feel as the challenge moves forward. Join our YMCA Calgary Parent Group to connect with other people doing the challenge: https://www.facebook.com/groups/YMCACalgaryParents

#NoPhoneFamilyDay (February 17, 2020)

With the help of our friends at Parenting Power, we are encouraging you and your family to put away your cell phones on Family Day (February 17, 2020) and spend more quality family time for #NoPhoneFamilyDay.

#NoPhoneFamilyDay is a one-day movement in which families unplug and spend more quality time with each other without the constant distraction of a smart phone. Most of our locations will be holding special activities throughout the day in honour of #NoPhoneFamilyDay. The activities will be open to anyone (members or non-members) but admission will apply. ‘No Phone Zone’ playing cards with 52 different family activities on them will be given out at each of our locations (while supplies last).
