Be a role model of the values you want your children to have

Dads are very powerful in establishing values.

  • Don’t rely on TV, movies, magazines or peers
  • Be specific about values like trust, honesty, integrity, respect, racism, generosity to those who are poor and kindness to those in need


New dads: get involved

The more time you spend with your baby the more confident you will become.


Learn to recognise children’s emotions

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