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 Supporting Dads: A free interactive group for Dads to chat about taking care of themselves and their family with likeminded men.
  • Workshops: We offer online workshops for fathers on a range of topics. See events below for our upcoming workshops.

Tuning into Kids

Tuning into Kids is a six week parenting program for children aged 2 to 11 years old. 

This course will show you how to help your child develop emotional intelligence. Children with higher emotional intelligence have greater success with making and keeping friends, have better concentration at school, are more able to calm down when upset or angry and tend to have fewer childhood illnesses. Emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ.

No cost, but please call 6164 0619 to register. A light supper is provided.

Time: 6.30 - 8.30pm

When: Wednesday 17, 24 February, 3, 10, 17, 24 March

Where: 21 George Street, Mandurah
