Find the teachable moments in life

“Because Dad was a natural teacher, the whole of our time with him was a learning experience. He would talk about things social, religious, political, anything really. He would quiz us all the time about the capital cities of other countries. He would discuss the news with us in a way that made it alive.” – Tim Costello, minister and CEO of World Vision Australia

  • Share your knowledge with your children. Even if they roll their eyes now, what they have learned from you will stick with them
  • Take advantage of natural opportunities to teach your children important life lessons. Don’t try to force it
  • Use what you know! If you are gifted in math, or science, or construction find a way to share that knowledge with your children

Tips:

Being involved and overcoming peer pressure

Being involved in your kid’s lives is really important. Your involvement shows them how much you care about them.

Tips:

Board games and card games

Board games and card games are a great way to spend time one-to-one with each of your children, as well as being a fun family activity.
