Boys need an appropriate role model

Boys look to their father or father-figure as the role model for their own behaviour.

  • Boys need time from fathers and father-figures
  • Teach them that revenge doesn’t solve problems, unlike in the movies or on TV
  • Speak and role model respect for women
  • Encourage physical activity, confidence and a healthy view of competition

Tips:

Read books together

Use Skype or phone to read together with your child, or read the same books.

Tips:

Struggling to accept a child with disabilities

Celebrate your child for how special and unique they are, not only for academic success or sporting ability.
