Play games!

Watch this short and funny clip featuring Peter Rowsthorn sharing a message on behalf of The Fathering Project.

The focus of this video is the importance of making time to play games around the house with your children. It may be a silly or uncomfortable concept to you to engage in games that you haven’t played since you were a child, but it is really good for their development and a great chance for bonding with your child.

Tips:

Connect with schools electronically

Access your child’s school through their website so you can keep up to date with what is happening. Many schools now offer parent portals where parents can see their child’s results and upcoming assessments, and also contact teachers.

Tips:

Be a proactive father

Talk with your partner about areas you can be more proactive with your children.
