Watch waves crash during storms

Go to the beach during a storm and see how different it can be. Find a parking spot overlooking the beach (so you can stay out of the rain and safe from lightning strikes) and watch the waves crash, and count the time between the lightning strike and accompanying thunderclap to see how far away the lightning is. Ask your child to describe what they see and hear.

Tips:

Help dad when he is away

Ask your children to help you by doing a task while you are away, or when they are not with you.

FIFO (Mums’ involvement)

Mums play an even more important part in the family than usual when their partners are away for long stretches of time due to work or travel. Mums can help avoid resentment from the kids towards a dad who is often away and misses important events. Find out how by listening to this podcast.
