Making time

Block out time in your calendar or diary for dad dates and other times to spend with your family – don’t leave it to chance.

  • Some families work best with fixed weekly routines, while others prefer to leave things more fluid – experiment to see what works best for you in creating time to spend together.
  • If something happens to cancel the planned time together – reschedule as soon as you can.


Consider working part time at home

Can you find a way to do some of your work from home? Even a day or two a week?


Encourage your kids

Build up your child’s confidence by encouraging him or her to step out of their comfort zone to try new things, and by noticing and praising their efforts.
