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!


  • 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.

  • Try to set aside a regular time to talk with the kids. Get them to tell you about the three best things about their day. Not only will your child feel special, you'll be able to stay across what's going on in their lives.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • 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.

  • Kids aged five and over should limit watching TV or playing electronic games for entertainment to no more than two hours per day.
