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.

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

  • Next time why not walk to the shops instead of driving? It's a great chance to talk with your kids, or maybe even play a game of 'I spy' or 'Spot the object' along the way.

  • Get cooking. Make your favourite dinner together or maybe just a tasty after-school snack.

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