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


Learn about parenting

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


Put your kids to work

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