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!


  • When you're juggling parenting with the demands of everyday life, it can be hard to stay on top of everything. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with friends and the kids can come along and run around.

  • 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.

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

  • Try to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.

  • It can sometimes be difficult to get everyone together for dinner, so why not start the day together as a family instead? Eating breakfast together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!
