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.

  • Read a fathering book & attend a seminar
  • 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

Tips:

Don’t create a kid cave!

Watch Peter Rowsthorn as he shares a message on behalf of The Fathering Project about the risks associated with setting your children up too well in their bedrooms!

Tips:

Get help if you are not coping

It’s tempting to put on a brave face and give the impression to your family that you are coping well with work, fathering, or other aspects of your life, even when things are not going great.
