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?

  • Being a parent or carer is a bit like throwing your life up into the air and then catching extra bits on the way down. So one of your best sources of help, support and friendship is likely to be other parents to share your joys, frustrations and concerns with. 

  • Make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Try to set a good example at home by reducing electronic media use for entertainment. Turn off the TV - especially at meal times - and make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?
