Ideas for weekends and vacations

Make the most of weekends and vacations when you have longer time to spend with your kids than during the work week.

  • Attend the kids sports and other interests (even if you don’t find some of it entertaining)
  • Cook a special meal once a week/month, eg a pancake breakfast
  • Take all of your allocated vacation time

Tips:

Keep talking

If you work away from home or travel a lot, be honest with your kids and your partner about how you are coping.

Tips:

Listen to your children

Focusing on one child at a time teaches your other children to listen and care about what is happening to their siblings.
