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!


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

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • 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 volunteering in your local community. You can help a cause that interests you, and can offer as little or as much of your time as you like.

  • 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.
