Footy season – get ready!

Travelling and being away from your children mean that often you are less likely to be regularly attending a football match (or other sporting event) with your children.  How about planning with your children and setting aside a time when you will be able to take them to a game.

Children like the build-up and anticipation of events and activities and you will capture their enthusiasm by scheduling the games in the season.  It doesn’t need to be top level.  You can have fun going to games and maybe also getting out on the ground to have a kick at half time.

Write these events on the calendar and then commit to making it happen.

Tips:

Focus on your kids when they are with you

Turn off the technology when you are with your children.

Tips:

Praise your kids – often

Criticism should be vastly outweighed by praise in communicating with your children.
