Learn about becoming a better father


Very few men are “naturals” when it comes to fathering and mentoring. Recognise this and take steps to learn more.

  • Use a diary plus some friends in order to plan and to keep going with any good intentions
  • Ask your school, workplace, club, church or other community group to run fathering courses/seminars
