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 using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).

  • Play word games together. Make up pretend words, "knock knock" jokes or "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes… anything that makes you all laugh!

  • Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.

  • Staying in regular contact with the people in your life - and the community around you - can improve your self-esteem.

  • 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.
