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.


Get to know their school

Your children spend a lot of time at school and are influenced by teachers and other staff, so get to know them.
