Encourage a healthy lifestyle

Spend active time with your kids – go for a swim, kick a footy at the park, or go for a bike ride. Encourage them to get outdoors and play.

  • Role modelling is more powerful than talking about exercise or just watching it on TV
  • Encourage enjoyment of physical activity – not everything has to be a competition

Tips:

Teamwork in parenting

Discuss and agree with your partner your approach to parenting, and support each other in developing and then adhering to this framework as your children grow.

Activities:

Begin a family ritual after work

At least once a week, get together as a family.
