previous research by movember has shown that over half (53 per cent) of dads believe men are under more pressure nowadays to be good parent, and 42 per cent say they feel anxious about being a ‘good father’.
that’s why movember has launched the world’s first online parenting program designed with dads in mind.
movember’s family man is a free, online course designed to equip parents of children, aged between two and eight, with the practical skills to manage challenging child behaviour and increase their parenting confidence.
it was adapted from a successful parenting program called parentworks which was developed by professor mark dadds (yes, that’s his real name) at the university of sydney.
a study of the program published in the journal of child psychiatry & human development showed it led to significant decreases in child emotional and behavioural problems and parental mental health problems.
