Try a continuous story

Children love stories, especially when they are about themselves. Ever heard of a continuous story? Dad makes up a story about his child and adds an episode every time it gets shared. Away from home? No problem. You can write it down and share by email or call on the phone.

If you haven’t tried it, give it a go. New episodes can be added daily or weekly. From others’ experience, this can continue through to mid-teens!!

Tips:

Create a family ritual

Begin a family ritual after work at least once a week.

Resources:
