For a boy a close relationship with his father is like gold. A father is like an anchor for a son. A dad is one constant in life who models what they become as an adult. All boys benefit from a strong male figure in their lives and it’s a father’s greatest privilege to be the man that not only gets to enjoy “tearing up the grass” with his sons but also to teach them how to become good men.

Boys whose dads are involved with them from a young age do better in lots of ways—academically, emotionally and socially. Well-fathered boys show the positive effects years later with an improved capacity for empathy and the health of their social relationships.

While very small boys often express a preference for their mother over their father, this often alters between the ages of two and four when Dad suddenly becomes the main attraction. It’s at this age that little boys get excited about cars, boats, tools and tractors, and as Dad increasingly becomes their partner in play, being just like him becomes their mission.

This workshop will discuss:
- The importance of the role Dad’s play in the development and nurture of boys;
- The importance of play with your son;
- Helping your son build self-esteem, a healthy identity and resilience;
- How to manage difficult behaviour.
