Dear Parents & Friends.
However biased this may seem it still may be of interest to some...
Children love their fathers, and men have a special role to play in their families. Unfortunately, things are stacked against dads on the parenting front. Parenting is treated as a hobby at the best of times, and men are "really supposed to be out there earning a living”. The pressure can rob men of the time and the space to pay enough attention to their families. This Introductory Evening will give dads and their supporters an opportunity to hear about how the tools of Parenting by Connection can support fathers (and other men) in their relationship with their children.
The 6 week course is a chance for Dads (and other men who care for children) to meet with 10-12 others over 6 classes to:
· learn practical, effective ways to respond to their children's emotional needs;
· learn how to set limits in a way that builds strong relationships;
· take home six very practical tools for resolving children's off-track behaviour and improving connection in their family;
· develop an action plan for themselves and their family.
