Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, Step dads, Grandads out there across Tassie and beyond.
A thought also to the dad's to be, who are about to embark upon one of life's grand adventures.
And another for those men who for whatever reason, are unable to start the journey. All is not lost though, our young people need you. It might not be quite the same, but the rewards can be great. Get involved in the life of a young person, and support them along their journey. It is risky too of course, not just in terms of the way men can often be viewed as a threat, but also in the emotional risk of getting involved with a young person. Find a mentoring organisation who can provide that background support for you to take on a mentoring role.
For resources for dad's generally - see our Fatherhood page, or also Raising Children for plenty of useful information
