Strong Fathers, Strong Families | Community Outreach Services & Programs - Carbal Medical Services

Carbal’s Strong Fathers, Strong Families is a community outreach program designed to promote the important role that dads, pops, uncles and male carers play in early childhood development.

Each session has a specific focus on child and father, with sessions taking place through a ‘Yarnin Circle’ giving fathers the chance to ask questions and to have input in the sessions.

“It’s Easier to Build Strong Children
Than to Repair Broken Men”

Frederick Douglas, 1855

Studies have shown that how a father behaves and interacts with their child at a young age directly influences how children will act towards others throughout childhood and adulthood.

Some principles that our sessions focus on include:

 

  • Teaching your kids the value of respect by taking the actions towards being a good role model;
  • Your daughter will learn about male/female relationships by observing you, it is important she sees you showing care and respect for everyone in the family;
  • Your son will watch you and often copy your actions. This is how he learns about male/female relationships, friendships and their role in the community and family.
