When you take the kids to play down to the park or to the beach, or even out in the backyard, don’t just sit and keep an eye on them while you do other things – join in! You and the children will both gain much more from the experience if you do.

Tips:

A picture is worth 1,000 words

Take photos of your workplace and/or your home (if you live apart from your children) to show your kids – this will help them to visualise where you are when you are not with them.

Tips:
