Plan your next dad dates

If you work away from home, travel a lot, or don’t see your children often due to access limitations, here’s an activity to try:

Ask the kids to come up with some suggestions for what they would like to do on their next “Dad date”. During Skype chats while you are away from your children you can discuss their ideas and decide what to do, and book it into your calendar for the agreed day.

Experiences:

Tips:

Learn to recognise children’s emotions

Learn to recognise when your child is feeling sad, anxious or frightened, and be ready to listen.
