Really listen to your children – they will notice!

Remove distractions, focus on your child, and listen to what they are saying.

  • Don’t boomerang discussion back to yourself
  • Ask yourself what it is like from their shoes
  • Become curious about their music and interests (eg. buy & read a magazine about them)

Tips:

Bond over chores

Give your children chores to do with you around the house – it’s a great way to spend time together and pass on skills and knowledge.

Tips:

Play games!

Watch Peter Rowsthorn as he shares a message on behalf of The Fathering Project on the importance of making time to play games with your children.
