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?

  • Give your kids chances to practice talking with others and learn how to listen and be understood, share, take turns, follow rules and be kind and helpful.

  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • Try cloud watching with your kids. Lie on the grass and talk about the different shapes, animals or faces you can see in the clouds above.
