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 set a good example at home by reducing electronic media use for entertainment. Turn off the TV - especially at meal times - and make bedrooms TV and computer free zones.
Consider joining a community group or club in your local area. You could try anything from a sporting group to a special interest group for things like photography, craft or cooking. Go to the Connect and Participate Expo to find a club for you and your family.
Encourage polite and respectful behaviour at meal times. Try to wait until everyone is seated before you start eating.
Dinner time can sometimes be too difficult at the end of a busy day - why not start a day together as a family? Eating together is a great way to share what the day's plans are and get everyone off to a positive start!
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.
