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:

Make it a habit

If you can, aim to spend a few minutes one-on-one with each of your children every day.

Tips:

Create time with your children

The everyday moments you spend with your child has as much value as the special moments.
