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!


  • Try to remember to switch off distractions like your phone while talking with your kids - it'll remind them that they're important to you.

  • Often our lives get so busy it's hard to find time to connect with other like-minded people. If you're not already, try to set up a monthly play group with a few friends who might be going through similar challenges as you are. The kids can play and you can catch up on all the news.

  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! To find out more go to the resources section.

  • Next time you and the kids are heading out for a walk, why not see if your neighbour would like to join you?

  • Kids aged four or under should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than an hour per day.
