Positive Male Role Models

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”, are the insightful words of Frederick Douglass. These words are very relevant to our mission to support and help men. International Men’s Day on the 19 November is now only 22 sleeps away. The team at Dads4Kids are proud to announce the release… Read More

Building in Love

André Maurois said, “Marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day”. No truer words were ever spoken. André’s full quote is even more revealing. “Marriage is not something that can be accomplished all at once; it has to be constantly re-accomplished. A couple must never indulge in idle tranquillity with the remark; ‘The… Read More

The Art of Story Telling

As a young boy I lived at one time in an old red brick home in Sydney in a suburb called Croydon. Every night, before bed time, my little brother and I would rush dad and sing him a song: “Tell us a story, tell us a story, tell us a story before we go… Read More

The Power of Love

In 1952 Albert Einstein was asked by a Princeton doctoral student what was left in the world for original dissertation on research? Einstein replied, “Find out about prayer!” I certainly agree with Einstein, but I would also say, “Do some research and find out about the ‘power of love’.” In our modern society we know… Read More

Imitating Dad

Some time ago I was sitting eating with dinner with my family and enjoying their company. We had a young woman staying with us so I asked her how our home was different to the one she was raised in. She said with a sigh, “We hardly ever ate our dinner at the table. Mostly… Read More

Adventure with Dad

Just this morning I walked out my driveway at 6AM to go down to the Gym with my wife and I found a dead black snake in our front driveway near the road. It was only a baby about 400mm long and I felt quite sorry for it. Seeing the poor deceased baby snake made… Read More
