Share a laugh

Telling jokes, watching a comical TV show or film together, or sharing a story of something funny that happened, are not only good for you, but they help build relationships and ease tensions.

  • Tell your kids “Dad jokes”.
  • Leave funny notes in their lunchboxes or send them a jokey text.
  • Share funny news stories via email.

Tips:

Show your children you love them, always

Don’t just spend the fun times with your kids and then withdraw as soon as things get serious – love means sharing the tough times too.
