Child Care News for Parents & Carers
August 29, 2018
Welcome, to celebrate Father's Day on Sunday we consider the important and growing role of stay at home dads, and how to raise a child who knows how to be a good loser.
Celebrating the role
of dads in Australian families
With Father's Day just around the corner (put 2 September in your diary), there is no better time to celebrate the role that dads play in Australian families.

Gone are the days of this job being associated simply with bread-winning. Modern dads play an active role in their child's life, and according to research released by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS), for about 80,000 Australian fathers, this role is as primary care-giver.

Let's investigate the experiences of stay-at-home dad families.
How to teach your child to win – and lose – gracefully
It's commonly said that, 'Winners are grinners and losers can please themselves,' and when it comes to children, this can translate to unabashed boasting and torrents of tears.

Young children's physical, emotional and social skills are still developing, and although it might be gratifying to win an Egg and Spoon Race or disappointing to miss out on a Pass the Parcel prize, it's important for youngsters to learn that winning isn't everything, it's how you play the game.

Let's look at why games are beneficial for children, and what parents can do to encourage fairness and raise a good sport.
