Share interesting facts about where you are working or living

Since you are away from the children’s home, how about discovering some facts about the place you are at and sharing it with your children. If you are going back to the location on a frequent basis, this enables you to build up an exercise book and delve into the research or understand the history or whatever you like.

You can share it through a hobby (photography, painting, poetry) or a school subject (history, geography, politics) or through something different. This can enable you to maybe do things together or get your child to set a list of find/discover/research etc when you next go away.

Tips:

Ask how you can help

It's easy to fall into the habit of telling your child what to do. Try asking how you can help instead.
