Help dad when he is away

What about asking your children to help you with something when you are apart from them?

Examples include cutting out newspaper articles on a subject, finding out what is on in your city/town in the upcoming week, cleaning the filter of the swimming pool, remembering to take out the recycling, etc.

The task doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult, and it will give you a natural point of discussion when you return, plus a chance to say thanks and so start the return on a positive note.
