Caring Dads: Safer Children Helping dads address violent behaviour
Children can be deeply traumatised if they see violence between their parents or carers, even if they aren't physically harmed.
Caring Dads: Safer Children is for fathers who are having difficulties in their family because of their abusive or violent behaviour.
It aims to help dads:
- stop their abuse
- recognise the impact their behaviour has on their children
- improve their parenting.
How it works
Fathers come to the NSPCC to work together in a discreet, supportive group. They attend 17 sessions focusing on topics like:
- how your behaviour as a parent can be affected by your own childhood experiences of parenting
- what emotionally abusive, controlling or violent behaviour between parents feels like for a child
- what children need from their dads to improve and strengthen their relationship.
