The power of good father figures

Being a father figure is an important role for all men, e.g. uncles, grandfathers, teachers, sports coaches, youth/scout leaders and pastors.

  • Children with no father contact need father figures
  • Intentionally make your contacts with nephews, nieces, your children’s friends, etc encouraging

Experiences:

A father figure doesn’t have to be an immediate male member of the family. You can always be a father figure to your child’s friends at school.

Tips:

Impacts when fathers reunite with children

Be aware that your children have coping strategies in place while you are away from them – don’t be too hasty in making judgements when you see your children again.
