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

Tips:

Encourage good fathering in your workplace

Make your workplace one that supports families.

Activities:

Begin a family ritual after work

At least once a week, get together as a family.
