What boys need

Boys look to their father or father-figure as the role model for their own behaviour.

  • Teach them not to pretend to be tough
  • Tell them it is OK to make mistakes, feel sad or cry – tell them when you felt that way as a child
  • We are automatically role models for boys so we need to always be aware of these things


Family holidays

Even if you can’t take long vacations, organise mini-breaks over weekends or for a few days during school holidays to spend time with your children.


Be an example for your child

Seeing how you handle different situations in your life, good and bad, influences your children.
