Be present when it matters

“Dads need to be around at times that matter – crisis times such as exams, relationship breakdowns and important transition times.” – Jim McCluskey, medical researcher, doctor and professor.

  • Learn to recognize what constitutes a crisis time for your child. What stresses them out? Find a way to be there and support your child during those times.
  • Make it clear that you are available anytime your child needs to talk. Let them know that they can call you in times of need.
