The Karrinyup Primary School Dads’ Group (KIDMAD) commenced in September 2015.

After an information session conducted at the school by The Fathering Project, the dads formed an organising committee and commenced planning future activities. They are currently running a school competition to design their champion dads’ group logo, and have a schedule of dads and kids and dads only activities under way.

Tips:

Show your children you love them, always

Don’t just spend the fun times with your kids and then withdraw as soon as things get serious – love means sharing the tough times too.

Tips:

Give your child something that belongs to you while you are away

If you will be away from home for a while due to work or travel commitments, younger children especially will love to have something of yours that they can hold, smell and even sleep with while you are away.
