Bookmark sites about your children

There are plenty of sites that have to do with your children and these can be accessed any time of day or night. Examples are surf lifesaving clubs, sports teams, school newsletters, school timetables, etc.

Why not set up a bookmark for each child and then make sure you visit one of their sites each week to keep abreast of what they have been up to or events in an area of their life.

If you ask them how was x or y, they will be more open to your telephone discussions or time together.


Help your child to stay away from drugs

Talking through the issues and supporting your children can help guide them in dealing with drugs.


Be spontaneous

You may not be able to do so on a regular basis, but taking a spontaneous afternoon off to have fun with your children will be good for you all.
