Digi Discipline

The technological world we live in is an ever changing place, as a parents we can often neglect technological discipline as it doesn't present the same challenge that a misbehaving child may.

Father Figure has been delivering workshops in Schools across London for a number of years, below we have uploaded many sites which will assist you to be better disciplined and protective of your household with regards to technology.

Definition of A Father Figure

A father figure is usually an older man, often one in a position of power or influence, who arouses emotions usually felt for a person's father, and with whom a person identifies.

Father figure is seeking to combine honest messages and social media to reach out to men with positive advice. We will host events and work in partnership with individuals, groups and organisations to promote positive fathering.

Father Figure is aware of the impact that a positive father figures can have on the lives of children.
