Family Man provides simple, yet effective, tools for mastering the art of parenting. Making "family” your new favourite F-word.
Dads are major part of many families, but represent only 20% of people who participate in parenting programmes.
We’d like to see this change, so we created Family Man with dads in mind. A happier, healthier family is our goal.
Getting ready for bed shouldn’t always end in tears. We’ve tested our recommendations with parents to understand what really works, especially for children 2 to 8 with minor to severe behaviour issues. With years of research under our belt, the evidence shows that many children can improve their behaviour with the right care.
Tantrums, aggression, meltdowns in the supermarket – all joys of raising little ones. These moments can test your patience and willpower, especially if you don’t have the tools to de-escalate. Each episode of Family Man takes you through a different challenge to explore and improves your day-to-day skills.
We’ve built Family Man to get more dads involved alongside partners and other caregivers. But a team doesn't have to mean a partner - it can be anyone that pitches in with raising your child, like a grandparent or even a teacher.
Married, single or separated – Family Man tactics still apply.
Backing each-other up with a consistent strategy is key.
Grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles – it’s a family affair.
