Spend time together after school

Take advantage of flexible work arrangements where possible to be with your children after school.

  • Pick them up from school when possible
  • Take them out occasionally for ice creams, swims, bowling or other treats
  • Have dinner with the children most nights of the week
  • Turn the TV, phones and all other distractions off during dinner and listen to the children

Tips:
