Your donation today will support our work to prevent kids from suicide, self-abuse and substance-abuse through our research, schools programs, prevention and education programs.
The Fathering Project Preventing Kids’ Harm was founded by The Fathering Project in May 2015. It is established specifically to deal with the problems of substance abuse, suicide and self-harm amongst school-aged children.
Each week, we will send you essential tips to inspire you to be a better dad. Sign up today to ensure you don’t miss out!
Being a better Dad is about being present and involved in every stage of your child’s life. Research shows there is a strong causal link between good fathering and the reduced incidence of harmful behaviours such as delinquency, suicide, self-harm and substance abuse. What and who they become tomorrow will be your legacy.
Fathers have significant impact on the social, cognitive, emotional and physical well‐being of children from infancy to adolescence and with lasting influences into their adult life.
Tell your kids you love them, often.
There are many things that fathers can do in the midst of a busy life to make a difference in the lives of their children.
A father figure doesn’t have to be an immediate male member of the family. You can always be a father figure to your child’s friends at school.
There are so many outdoor ideas to choose from when it comes to a family-fun day with your partner and kids. Find out some ideas of an activity you can enjoy.
The Fathering Project School Group is formed in your child’s school by fathers and father figures who want to be champions in their child’s life. The group is aimed at being fun, building interaction and knowledge of fathers and father figures of the school to engage themselves more effectively in the lives of their kids.
