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!


  • When your kids get frustrated, it can sometimes be too much to handle. Hang in there and try to repeat back what you think they're feeling. It will help them learn to express themselves and over time it will help make them feel respected, comforted and cope with their emotions better.

  • 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).

  • Make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.

  • Instead of your family watching TV or playing games on your phone, computer or other devices, try to get moving together as a family instead! To find out more go to the resources section.

  • One weekend a month try not to focus on all the jobs you have to do around the house and take some time out to connect with those who are important to you.
