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!


  • Try to give your kids your full attention if they're telling you about their day - it'll remind them just how important they are to you.

  • As a parent, your life often gets caught up with various parenting "stuff". Try to take some time out for yourself this week by locking in 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.

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

  • Looking to join a community group or club? Check out what's on offer through ACT Communities Online.

  • Organise a barbecue for your street so everyone can meet their neighbours. For tips on making this happen, see www.neighbourday.org
