Building strong relationships
Dads Tuning in to Kids™ is a two-hour programme run over seven weeks. It acknowledges the vital role fathers play in the wellbeing and development of their tamariki, and offers skills and tools to support them in this role.
The programme provides fathers with information to support a greater understanding of their tamariki's developmental needs and emotional experiences, as well as information about their influence on this development. It includes specific training on how to help tamariki manage emotions such as worry, frustration and anger, developing emotional intelligence in tamariki and creating a stronger parent/child relationship.
