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!

  • Having strong, broad social connections in your life can increase feelings of happiness and self-worth in you... and in your kids.

  • When you're juggling parenting with the demands of everyday life, it can be hard to stay on top of everything. Often a 'walk and talk' is a good way to catch up with friends and the kids can come along and run around.

  • Every trip to the park, or even your backyard, can be a new adventure if you can just add a little creativity into the mix. Break out your kids' favourite superhero costumes - or make a costume together with your kids - then head to the park or the backyard with your own Little League of Superheroes!

  • 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.

  • Make an effort to get to know your neighbours or other people living in your street. Encourage your kids to make friends and play with the kids next door, or simply say "Hi!" when you're putting out the bins.
