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!


  • Life as a parent often feels like it's a rush from one thing to the next. Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking 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.

  • Often it is hard to have everyone in the same place for every meal. Try mapping out on the calendar every meal you will aim to eat together this month and stick to it!

  • Why not play dress ups with the kids using those old clothes you never wear? Use your imagination to act out different roles.

  • Try to turn the TV off while eating a meal together to avoid any distractions.

  • Dinner time can sometimes be too difficult at the end of a busy day - why not start a day together as a family? Eating together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!
