Encourage learning

Encourage learning and be excited about it. Any time spent together can be a time to teach and to learn.

  • Use examples from around you to pose problems and then work out an answer together.
  • These problems can be anything from basic spelling or maths problems to big questions, like “How could that be done better?”, “Why is that happening?”, “What is the problem here and how could it be fixed?”
  • If you can’t agree on the answer, do some research together to learn more.

Tips:

Kids appreciate a proactive father

Being proactive can be as simple as thinking about what your child will need and providing it.

Tips:

Discussing sexuality with your daughter

Your involvement in your daughter’s teenage years is very important. It is a bad time to withdraw your affection as it is just the time when she needs the love and care from you.
