Bond through struggles

“The only other thing we do on a daily basis is to make sure that we always eat together every night of the week. I don’t want to make it sound idyllic, because we often end up fighting, but it is important to us.” – Ian Frazer, doctor and medical researcher.

  • Family meals may not always be cheerful, but they are still important.
  • Being together through thick and thin builds a stronger family unit.


Make an obstacle course in the backyard

Use whatever you can find to build obstacles to climb over, crawl under and jump through.


Utilize a flexible schedule

Can you work an extra hour, or work through lunch to make time to leave early one day a week? Spend that extra hour with your child.
