Research has shown that being a warm and supportive, involved and engaged father impacts positively on your child’s mental wellbeing.

Do you live in Mandurah or Pinjarra? Do you need help to strengthen your relationship with your child? 

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t always know automatically what to do as a parent. Join other dads of children aged up to 15 years to build skills to assist your child to be positive, flexible and assertive.

How can we help you?

The 4dads program offers information, education, referrals and support for fathers of children up to 18 years in the Mandurah and Pinjarra areas.
  • Dads Supporting Dads’ – an open drop in group where fathers can share their journey over a relaxed BBQ and chat. 
  • If your family has been impacted by separation, one-off ‘Child Focused Tools’ seminars will assist you to meet your child’s changing needs
  • Tuning in to Kids’ – a 6 week parenting program to boost father-child connection through emotion coaching. Parents who recognise, understand and respond to their child’s emotions can also help children understand and manage their own emotions, which can result in fewer emotional and behavioural difficulties.
  • ‘Tuning in to Teens’ – a 6 week parenting program to assist your adolescent with emotional regulation, peer pressure, coping with upset or anger and so on. Teens with high emotional intelligence have fewer mental health and substance abuse issues, more successful careers, as well as stable adult relationships.

This Children and Parent Support Service initiative is funded by the Department of Social Services.
