This Sunday, many Australian men will wake up to handmade cards, craft and, maybe, a new electronic gadget. But beyond the traditional BBQ celebration, it’s a time to acknowledge the role of fathers in our society.
Fatherly love helps us develop a sense of our place in the world, which helps our social, emotional and cognitive development and functioning. In fact, children who receive more love from their fathers are less likely to struggle with behavioral or substance abuse problems. Research has shown that children who spend quality time with their fathers are 80% less likely to be incarcerated or engage in criminal activities.
Our team at TASC help men with family law issues, such as parenting, property settlements and divorce. Our goal is to help them maintain happy, healthy and meaningful involvement in their children’s lives. If you live in Toowoomba, Ipswich or South West Queensland or know men in those areas who are experiencing family law issues, contact TASC Legal and Social Justice Services on 07 4616 9700.
