Be a proactive father

“The way Jan and I tend to be proactive is that we sit down and reflect together about these things. If we think something is missing in their life we work out what we need to do. Usually Jan spots it, but sometimes it’s me.” – Peter Newman, environmental scientist, author and educator.

  • Talk with your partner about areas you can be more proactive with your children.
  • Decide together how to create more opportunities for building those skills.
  • Make it happen.
