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:

Get the lowdown on issues at home before you arrive

If you have been away from home for a while through work or travel commitments, chat with your partner a day or two before you head home to find out any issues – rather than having them dumped on you when you walk in the door!
