Back-up contact details

Mobile phones are a great way to keep in touch, but you may not always be able to have yours with you or be able to have it switched on. Besides, accidents happen that can make your phone unusable.

Make sure your kids have at least one alternative way to contact you when you are apart in case there is an emergency – a supervisor’s landline number, accommodation reception number, or whatever is most appropriate.

Tips:

Socialising with your children

Don’t plan too many social activities for your time with your children; leave plenty of time to just hang out with your kids.

Tips:

Your child and current news

Keep up with current news and encourage your children to take an interest in the world around them. Discuss events together as a family.
