Kids stuff

Time to lead by example and take the kids out to burn that silly energy of theirs off as getting outdoors is so beneficial for them in so many ways, not to mention getting them away from screens!

Grab one of their friends and make a play date of it. Use the time out and about to talk to your kids. Get them to help you pack a picnic with their favourite food and make a day of it.
