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.

  • Joining a playgroup at your local community centre can be a great way to share the challenges and joys of family life. 'Paint and Play' offered by Communities@Work is a great place to start.

  • Have a look at what's on at your local Communities@Work community centre. Often there are free classes or groups you can join with other like-minded people and families.

  • When you stay connected to the people and world around you, you'll be more likely to be able to deal with life's inevitable ups and downs.
