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:

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.

Tips:

Be an example for your child

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