Take your child with you on a trip – Part 1

Spend time with your child on a trip away together.

  • Take one child at a time, and no other adults should come.
  • The best time to start taking your child overseas is when they are between seven and ten.
  • It doesn’t have to be overseas or interstate – the next town will do.
  • Stay overnight if possible.
