My Fifo Family believes that becoming a fifo/dido or even bibo family where one parent works away can be a positive and rewarding and lifestyle choice. My Fifo Family is dedicated to helping make this lifestyle choice a sustainable one by providing families with fun and engaging resources such as calendars, books and activity packs that you can use in your own home to help your children better understand and adapt to the fifo lifestyle.
I don’t feel children need to know all the ins and outs of adult life however, as a FIFO mum of two young children having your children understand when their fifo parent is away, where they are going and of course when they are returning, not only reduces stress from both parents but makes for a much happier fifo life.
My Fifo Family liaises with a number of child health professionals, child psychologists, resource companies and working away parents and their children.
My Fifo Family believes
Happy family = Happy life!
