Spend time together before school

Start work later occasionally and do things with your kids instead.

  • Cook a special breakfast for them, or take them out for breakfast, one at a time
  • Help with the morning routine – make lunches, get the children dressed, pack schoolbags
  • Walk or drive them to school

Tips:

Learn about parenting

Take the opportunity to read books and websites, listen to talks and discuss fathering (and, more generally, parenting) with others.

Tips:

Put your kids to work

Even if you don't work with children, you can involve your children in your job.
