Girl Guides welcomes your daughter!
The beginning of the new school term is a great time to get your daughter involved in Guiding.
Girl Guides is for girls and young women from all cultures, faiths and traditions aged from 5 to 17 years. The program offers a wide range of activities and is structured so that your daughter gets to spend time with girls her own age. There are weekly meetings during school terms, weekend/school holiday events and adventures.
Your daughter will love the mix of outdoor adventure, helping the community, leadership and teamwork, friendship and fun! Whatever your daughter chooses to explore in the world of Guiding, it's all about trying to be her best.
Being a dad is the most rewarding, challenging and important job you will ever have.
The way we behave with our kids will have a big effect on them, on what they do, how they feel about themselves, and how they turn out. Studies have shown that children whose fathers spend time with them and show that they are interested in them do better at school, are happier and more confident and have higher self-esteem.
Many fathers and soon to be fathers have lots of love and good intentions to offer their families. They have an idea of what a "good father" is and the type of experiences and relationships they would like with their children. However, like all new jobs they may want to be "good dads" but may be uncertain how. Children need fathers who:
Spend time with them
Show them love
Listen to them
Are interested in them
Are realistic in their expectations of them
Are fair and firm
Respect their feelings
Help them feel safe and protected so they may explore, learn and grow
Children also need fathers as role models/mentors or teachers to help them:
Learn about relationships
Learn about masculinity
Learn about sexuality
Learn about important life skills
What can I do?
Slow down - put things into perspective and make time to enjoy being a dad to your baby or young child
Get involved right from the start. Sing, read and talk to your baby regularly and make the bond early. Your relationship with him/her will be better for it
Make time and talk with your father and other fathers or expectant dads about their experiences of fatherhood and how it changed their life
Have a look at the other priorities in your life and consider whether they are compatible with your new life and your partners expectations of fatherhood
