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!


  • As a parent, your life often gets caught up with various parenting "stuff". Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking in a coffee date with a friend into your diary or catching up for some adult conversation. Your kids will learn that fostering friendships is important.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • Cuddle up in bed with a pile of books and read with your child or tell them stories from your childhood and have a giggle about funny things from "the olden days".

  • Board games like snakes and ladders, dominoes and simple card games will teach your kids the concept of fair play, and how to win or lose graciously.

  • Make a pledge to limit your family's screen time. Make the most of time spent together and have fun by playing games or getting moving in some way.
