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:

Share a laugh with them

“Being there” with technology
