Bringing your child on a work trip

Take your child along on a work trip and create some special memories for you both.

  • Workmates rarely complain if you bring your children along.
  • During your work trip, do some non-work things together.
  • Take your child to the conference.
  • Don’t worry about taking them out of school; these trips are useful educationally.
  • The trip will have a positive impact on their learning overall.

Dad Dates

Taking your kids out individually on one-on-one dates is important. It helps your child feel worthwhile when you take time out of your busy work schedule to spend with them. Use this time together to focus on your child - practise listening and encouraging.

Tips:

Kids in high school

Talk with your high-schooler about school - not just what they are learning but also their friends, teachers, sport, etc.
