4Dads

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

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 & Kids Group: A free interactive breakfast club for Dads and their kids, and to meet other Dads in the area.
  • Workshops: We offer online workshops for fathers on a range of topics. See events below for our upcoming workshops.
  • Dads Counselling Sessions: Book a Dads 1-1 no cost counselling session by calling or emailing us..

Call 61640619 or email 4families.mandurah@relationshipswa.org.au to obtain more information or to register your interest.

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

Tuning in to Kids - a FREE parenting program

Tuning in to Kids is an emotion-focussed parenting program which provides parents and carers with skills in emotion coaching. When children develop emotional skills they are better able to negotiate the ups and downs of life.

Most importantly, it is an ‘evidence-based’ program developed by the University of Melbourne. More than 100,000 parents have attended Tuning in to Kids programs in Australia alone.

Learn how to:

  •  be better at talking with & understanding your child
  • help your child better manage their emotions
  • prevent behaviour problems with your child
  • teach your child how to deal with conflict

This FREE course runs over six, two hour sessions at Cooper Street office in Mandurah.
