Be involved in your children’s lives outside of school

Create opportunities to spend time with your children after school.

  • Encourage plenty of humour at home
  • Don’t miss special evening events, eg music, sport, club nights
  • Coach or manage each of their sports teams at least once (not just the sport you like)
  • Use a message bank to divert calls, especially for mealtimes

Tips:

They’re only young once

Remember that work will always be there, but your children won't.

Tips:

Be positive
