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


Encourage Learning

Encourage yourself to teach and your kids to learn. For example, take them to a museum or discuss world issues with them. Encourage them also to think creatively.


Promote a positive attitude to their school

Encourage your child to learn, and support the school and teachers in helping your child in this.
