Stimulate your child’s interest

Watch suitable educational TV programs with your children (e.g. David Attenborough documentaries). Perhaps ask your children to take turns to identify a current news story that they would like the family to discuss over dinner. Or ask each child to research a famous person they are interested in or who share their birthday, and invite them to share what they have learned with the family.


Help your child to stay away from drugs

Talking through the issues and supporting your children can help guide them in dealing with drugs.


Avoid the good cop, bad cop trap

If you are separated from your partner, disciplining your children can become more difficult.
