The Hammond Park Catholic Primary School dads’ group (Secret Dad’s Business) was formed in May 2016.

They had a launch meeting where 40 dads attended out of a school of 203 children. A committee was formed, and the first event was organised, which was an overnight camp out held at the school grounds on Friday the 29th of April. 98 dads, kids and grandfathers attended the event, representing 43 families.

Tips:

Listen to your children

Focusing on one child at a time teaches your other children to listen and care about what is happening to their siblings.

Tips:

Offer freedom with boundaries

As parents, you need to balance the need to keep your children safe with the impetus to encourage them to try new things and to learn about their world.
