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!


  • 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.

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

  • Cuddle up in bed with a pile of books and read with your child or tell them stories from your childhood and have a giggle about funny things from "the olden days".

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

  • Looking for some indoor fun for the kids? Construct a village together out of toys, boxes or things around the house and let the little ones make up a story about a day in the village.
