Older teenage and adult children

Even when your children are grown up (or nearly so) they still need your reassurance that they are loved unconditionally.

  • Plan time for dad dates with all your children, no matter how old they are.
  • Tell your teenage and adult children – often! – that you love them.


Work around children’s busyness

As the kids get older, they will get busier with school, sport, after-school activities, friends, etc. Work around their other commitments as much as you can in planning time together.


Attend the kids’ sports and other interests

Encourage your children in whatever sport and other interests they have chosen, by attending games and asking them questions.
