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 at the shops with the kids, let them help pay for things, scan your groceries, help pack the bags, and have conversations with shop assistants. You'll probably both get a kick out of it!

  • Try to set aside a regular time to talk with the kids. Get them to tell you about the three best things about their day. Not only will your child feel special, you'll be able to stay across what's going on in their lives.

  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.

  • A great way to kick off the habit of sitting together as a family is to get the kids to host the family 'restaurant' once a week. They can set the table and help prepare the meal with you. Do it on the weekend when things tend to be less busy.

  • If it's raining outside, why not pretend to be the weather? Swirl like the wind, stomp and clap like thunder, or dance a sunny jig to chase the clouds away!
