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.

  • 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.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.

  • Get cooking. Make your favourite dinner together or maybe just a tasty after-school snack.

  • Twirling and running with streamers is a fun, active game the kids will love. Make sure you join in too!
