Tune in to the “home tone”

First impressions usually set the tone for the time spent with your children (maybe not for you but more so for the children). So the first 24 to 48 hours together usually set the tone for your experience that week or that fortnight.

Think about what you want this tone to be. Thinking ahead and developing a plan gives you a fighting chance of starting as you want the time together to continue.

Be a role model for your beliefs to your children

Children will learn of your beliefs by what you do as well as what you say.
