Create time away with each of your kids

Taking each of your children on a trip with you, whether overseas or just for a few days to the next town, is a great way to spend time with your child and help them feel special.

  • Work trips and conferences provide an ideal basis around which to build a trip with your child – another way to make your work a friend of your fathering.
  • If a work trip or conference is not in the offing, contrive an excuse to travel away somewhere! (E.g. take a trip interstate to see a sporting event or stage show, or visit a museum or gallery in another city to see an exhibition that your child is keen to view.)

Tips:

Help your children’s education

Encourage each of your children to learn, and to put their best effort into everything they do.

Tips:

Do your work colleagues know you are a dad?

Being a dad is part of who you are – not a separate component of your life that is hidden away while you are at work.
