Take each of your children on one-on-one trips

One-on-one trips (no other adults, no other kids), such as camping, hiking, road trips to local or interstate destinations, or even occasionally journeys overseas, are a valuable way of spending time with your child and showing them they are special. Involve the child, and their mother, in the planning of such trips.

Tips:

Review why you are FIFO

Working FIFO has both costs and rewards. Review your situation at least annually to see if it remains the optimal situation for you and your family.

Activities:

Take each of your kids out regularly for ‘dad dates’

‘Dad dates’ (no other adults, no other kids) don’t have to be elaborate or expensive, but what they do need to be is time spent together.
