In the Spotlight


Every year, Baton Rouge Parents Magazine hosts The Cover Kid Event to find fresh faces to appear on the cover and within the pages of the magazine for the upcoming year. The Cover Kid Event is not a beauty contest or a talent show–it’s simply a great opportunity for kids to come together, be themselves, have some fun, and possibly become next year’s new faces for the magazine. This year’s family-friendly event will be held on Saturday, August 18 at the Belle of Baton Rouge Atrium at 8 a.m. The Event will be from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. with the Shopping Extravanganza from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. For those interested in learning more about what to expect, we have answered parents’ most frequently asked questions.

What makes a Cover Kid?
A Cover Kid is between the ages of 2 and 17 years old, and is a good role model for all children. We believe that children who shine come in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and abilities. We encourage all children to attend the event and join in the fun at the possibility of becoming a Baton Rouge Parents Magazine Cover Kid for the year.

Cover Kids who are chosen will become ambassadors for the magazine as well as appear in the pages of our award-winning layouts. Cover Kids will have the opportunity to attend various events with us throughout the year, participate in fashion shows, and even volunteer in our community.

How is a Cover Kid selected?
There’s no secret method to being selected as a Cover Kid. The best advice that can be given is to allow the child to be themselves. It’s not about choosing the right outfit or memorizing lines before meeting the judges–it’s about being a kid and having fun.

What happens at the event?
Once your child is registered, he will receive a time slot for when he will meet the judges. When his time arrives, he will go up to the judges on his own and talk to one of the judges briefly. After the interview, he will know then whether or not to return for callbacks. During callbacks, a total of 40 children will be chosen to become official 2018-19 Cover Kids for Baton Rouge Parents Magazine.

Choosing Easy

A fellow mother once told me, “I have come to realize that the hard choices we make as parents tend to be the right choices.” We were discussing whether or not I should send my son to school the day of the last honor roll assembly this past week.

Parenting Advice from The Sopranos?

in Family Life, Mari Walker

I was a high school senior when The Sopranos debuted 20 years ago. I lived in the middle of nowhere, Oklahoma, and didn’t have basic cable let alone access to HBO to see the cultural juggernaut as it was airing for the first time.

A Playdate-Style Birthday Party

in Family Life, Crafts and Cooking, Party, Mari Walker

Birthday parties for littles can add up fast. For a few Benjamins, you can take them and a few friends to a bounce place or rent a bounce house for your backyard. We didn’t start big parties like that for my older daughter until she was about five.
