Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • After school one day, why not have a surprise picnic with the kids and chat with them about their day at school?

  • Try to set aside a regular time to talk with the kids. Get them to tell you about the three best things about their day. Not only will your child feel special, you'll be able to stay across what's going on in their lives.

  • Local libraries offer great author talks and activities especially for kids such as Giggle and Wiggle, Storytime and school holiday programs. 

  • Next time, instead of rewarding the kids with TV, computer or electronic games, why not reward them with balls, kites, skipping ropes or something that gets them active?

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.
