Build up new traditions with your kids

If changes such as separation or moving house have disrupted family traditions, start new ones! They don’t have to be complicated or expensive, just ways to spend time with your kids. Here are some suggestions:

  • Grow a garden together
  • Watch waves crash during storms
  • Toast marshmallows over an open fire


Make morning time special

Don’t always leave it to your partner to handle the morning rush of breakfast, getting dressed, getting school lunches packed and finding homework. Take your turn occasionally and see the benefits in your family’s life.


Create a backup support team

Ask family and/or friends to help out when needed.
