Top Tips for Dads #14

Found in: School News

The Fathering Project has provided some tips in the hope they will help, inspire and encourage all fathers and father-figures to be the best that they can be, as all fathers and father-figures are critically important in every child’s life. 

More involved fathers and father-figures = better outcomes for children.

Helping your child's education

  • Don't compare your children to each other, to their friends or to yourself
  • Focus on attitude and effort, not grades
  • Don't put pressure on them - encourage them to be as good as they can be and help them plan how to improve.
  • Be willing to help with homework (even if that just means asking them questions).
  • Overcome any urge to see your children fulfilling your own need for praise.
  • Let your children know you love them, no matter what results they achieve.
