Question: Is there any job more important than parenting?
Answer: Not that I can think of.
Question: How much time and effort do we spend on improving our parenting skills? Answer: Not much.

I’m interested in working with groups of fathers who want to invest in better relationships with their families. I want to be with people who are stretching out to be their best. I want to see the joy when they’ve had a really meaningful conversation with their child. And the pride they have when their child sorts through a problem, emerging stronger and better equipped to deal with their world.

Anger and indignation are not what any of us wish to teach our kids, but too often we run out of options and default to hurtful behaviours. And negativity can quickly become the norm.

PET can really change how it feels to be at home. PET changes the dynamic so people actually listen to each other and respond to each other in helpful and loving ways.

I’m based in Elwood in Melbourne’s South and I run groups like Tupperware parties: You recruit the participants; we meet in your home, and you get a discount. It’s a great way to strengthen community ties.

If you’re interested in taking it further, please call me on 0401 885 784.
