Create adventurous vacations

It is easy to slip into holiday ruts – taking time off at the same time each year and going to exactly the same place, staying in the same accommodation and seeing the same people. Try mixing it up – ask your children what they would like to do and where they would like to go and, if feasible, incorporate these wishes into your plans.

Tips:

Encourage father-figures to spend time with your kids while you are away

Ask the children’s grandad, uncle, sports coach or other male adult in their lives to make an extra effort to spend time with your kids while you are away.

Tips:

Be a role model of the values you want your children to have

Dads are very powerful in establishing values.
