Positive relationships for families

Quality time and family relationships

  • Use everyday time together to talk and share a laugh.
  • Have time together when devices are turned off and out of sight. This helps to keep everyone focused on what you’re doing or talking about at the time.
  • Have one-on-one chats with each family member to strengthen individual relationships.
  • Do regular, fun things together as a family.

Positive communication and family relationships

  • When your child or partner wants to talk, try to stop what you’re doing and listen with full attention. Give people time to express their points of view or feelings.
  • Be open to talking about difficult things – like mistakes – and all kinds of feelings, including anger, joy, frustration, fear and anxiety.
  • Encourage your children with praise.
  • Let everyone in the family know that you love and appreciate them.

Teamwork and family relationships

  • Share household chores.
  • Include children in decisions about things like family activities and holidays.
  • Create family rules together that state clearly how your family wants to look after and treat its members.
  • Work together to solve problems.

Appreciation for each other and family relationships

  • Take an interest in each other’s lives. For example, make time to go to each other’s sporting events, drama performances, art shows and so on.
  • Include everyone in conversation when you’re talking about the day’s events.
  • Share family stories and memories.
  • Acknowledge each other’s differences, talents and abilities, and use each other’s strengths.
