Being a Dad is not being a Mom. It’s not being Mom’s helper. It’s not being the babysitter.
It’s not just being the biggest toy in the room.
Your role and your impact in your children’s lives is unique and can be one of the most powerful, influential experiences that will guide them in their future decision making and healthy sense of self.
Does that sound like a big deal? It is.
Research has confirmed that dedicated father involvement is critical to the healthy development of children. With increased father involvement out comes for children are:
- Increased self esteem
- Increased emotional well being and trusting relationships with other
- Increased success in school
- Fewer behavioural problems
Father’s need to feel confident stepping into this important role.
Whatever your family looks like, whether you are a teen father, have a new baby, live with the mother, or co-parent or single parent, have many children, have on child, see your child on weekends, or live with them, we have parenting programs and support that can help answer your questions and make the journey a lot more fun.
From our Be a Great Dad 5 week conversation group that explores the 5 things that great dad’s do, to our LEAP (dad and child groups), to in Home Coaching, drop in resource centres, phone support and more.
Keep Checking back for our Be A Great Dad course with registration coming in October 2016!
