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!


  • Looking for a community or sporting group for you and your family to join is one way to meet new people with similar interest to yours. Check out ACT Communities Online to see if there is a group that suits your family.

  • Your kids are usually more influenced by what you do than what you say. It's not always easy but if you try to set a good example they'll follow in your footsteps!

  • Consider a regular family catch up. Enjoying good relationships with family, friends and the wider community will benefit your whole family’s wellbeing.

  • It can sometimes be difficult to get everyone together for dinner, so why not start the day together as a family instead? Eating breakfast together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!

  • Board games like snakes and ladders, dominoes and simple card games will teach your kids the concept of fair play, and how to win or lose graciously.
