About The Fathering Project:

We're for the kids.

The Fathering Project isn't for those dads who feel they aren't doing the best of jobs or struggling with the role.
It's for each and every dad!
To show them of their significant importance to their children and assist and provide useful tips to raise and develop our children; the future of our society.

A fulfilling life is important. Listen to this podcast to find out the meaning of a Caramello life.

Activities:

Create time away with each of your kids

Taking each of your children on a trip with you, whether overseas or just for a few days to the next town, is a great way to spend time with your child and help them feel special.

Tips:

Avoid the good cop, bad cop trap

If you are separated from your partner, disciplining your children can become more difficult.

Tips:

Family rituals are important

A family ritual is of high importance, particularly for those families who aren't spending as much time all together as they'd hope!

Dads Groups:

What is a Dads Group?

We're building communities of Dads through the formation of Dads Groups.

As Fathers and Father figures, it's too  easy to get lost in our other roles and forget what our first job is. Yet it's the most important job we'll ever do.

Because what we do, or don't do as Dads, has an enormous impact on the happiness and health of the kids we love.

The Dads Groups are formed through schools, workplaces and community groups and aim to be fun, interactive and supportive. They provide a community of like-minded Dads to discuss and address the importance of being an involved and effective Father or Father figure to create better outcomes for their kids.
