Virtual dinner

One of the most interesting practices I recently heard of was a father having dinner with his children via Skype. Picture this – Dad sitting at his table having dinner with his tablet set up on Skype. On the other end were his children doing the same at their home. It took a little while for this to feel normal but it eventually became easier. They were eating together like a family,

This example was a great way for the family routine to be maintained even when dad was away from the kids. Brilliant idea and clearly shows someone not letting a barrier becoming an excuse.


Let kids know they are loved

Parenting is not always easy. But even in the difficult times, tell your child you love them.


Play is more than just a game

Play with your children – for your benefit as much as for theirs.
