Forum topic for this week Tuesday 12 May – Do I Dad Like My Dad Did?
Fathers are hugely influential in their kids’ lives.
When fathering, men commonly refer back to their own experience – being brought up by their dad. They can base their own behaviour on what their dad did, the good and the bad!
Join us to discuss how our dads influence our parenting now, when to follow their example, and when to start new behaviours.
Session time – Tuesday 12 May 2020 8pm EST, 6pm WST
Register now and we’ll send you a Zoom link prior to the forum.
Note this is a father and father-figure only event.
Do you know about our Dads Groups?
Across Australia The Fathering Project assists dads to form groups that organise fun activities at schools across Australia, providing a safe and inclusive environment where fathers can engage with their kids, learn, share and connect with each other.
Find out more about joining one of our Dad Groups.
For those fathers and father figures who are members of the Dads Group in your school, you are welcome to join in our chat on Tuesdays. Also, keep an eye out for your own school chat session that many leaders will be organising.
