Conversation starters – primary school children

Not sure how to get your kids talking? Try asking the following:

  • How am I doing as your dad (or other appropriate father-figure title)? What could I be doing better?
  • If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be? Why?
  • If you could go back or forward in time, where would you go? Why? Would you want to stay there always, or just visit? Why?
  • If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why? Would you want to stay there always, or just visit? Why?

Tips:

Things no one tells you about being a new dad

Are you going to be a new dad? Well, hear it from the experts and find out the things that no one tells you about being one! But of course, we know that you'll be great no matter what.

Tips:

Stay connected during the day

Having a job that takes you away from home for a large part of the day need not mean you lose touch with your children.
