Join The Fathering Channel on Tuesday for our live weekly chat group. Dads from across Australia can chat, share, ask questions, get tips and stay connected.
This forum occurred on 28 April 2020.
In recent weeks we’ve heard many stories about the effects of COVID-19 on communities and families across Australia. It’s been hard, devastating, and for many unimaginable.
In spite of these challenging stories, many people have observed that some of the changes we’ve been forced to make have been positive, such as spending more time with our children, slowing down the pace of life, doing the little things.
This week we invite Fathers and Father-Figures to chat about some of the challenges this new norm has presented, but also to share some of the unique and positive outcomes they have experienced.
We’ll discuss how we can work on establishing some new habits and how to cement these changes to become our new norm moving forward.
This is a father and father-figure only event.
