Children need good father figures

Look for opportunities to be a father figure to other kids – nieces, nephews, your children’s friends, etc.

  • Take other children along with yours to the football, camping, dinner or movies
  • Be interested – tell them how special they are
  • Seek out other father figures for your own kids
  • Encourage sole-parent mothers to consider appropriate father figures for their children


Avoid bullying

Be aware of the signs of bullying and actions that can be taken.


Show your children you love them, always

Don’t just spend the fun times with your kids and then withdraw as soon as things get serious – love means sharing the tough times too.
