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


Flexibility of working from home

When you are working from home you can be more involved in the day to day aspects of your children's lives.


The Big W

When your children feel that they are worthwhile, they will be less likely to turn to drugs or alcohol.
