A girl’s father signals to her how she can expect to be treated by men, ie. how high she ‘sets the bar’.

  • Teach her to only accept respect from men
  • Fathers are important in giving girls confidence

Tips:

Build contacts in the workplace

Find other dads in your situation in your workplace and/or community and share experiences.

Tips:

Be a role model for your beliefs to your children

Children will learn of your beliefs by what you do as well as what you say.
