What our past participants have said…

Heaps of fun. Invaluable bonding time with my daughter. A life changing experience. If you believe your role as a Dad is vital to your child’s future, then I highly recommend ‘Fathering Adventures’ as a way to connect with your child and understand how you can be the best Dad possible. We just came back from an awesome “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience together that neither I nor my daughter will ever forget.

Sean from Melbourne, VIC

My Dad is like a changed man. All of a sudden… I matter to him. I MATTER TO HIM!!! He cares. He understands. He loves me – just the way I am. He even apologized for the past, and all the trauma I’ve been through. My favourite memory from the weekend was the high ropes: FLYING FOX!!! I conquered a fear! When Dad affirmed me… I wanted to cry. I never thought he would say it. Honestly. When your mindset is at such a depressed state – you don’t think anyone loves you. Especially your own father. Please tell Dad that he needs to let me grow up, and I will always be his little princess; even when I’m married.

Brittany from Canberra, ACT – Age 13 years

The May 2014 “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience created the framework for a lifetime of love and trust. My wife has always known there was a better space for my eldest daughter and I to co-exist in. I have always wished for it, but have been overwhelmed by everything else. My wife was the one who believed things could change. Her faith in me, and ‘Fathering Adventures’, made all the difference. And the key for us was dedicated time and space. How much can be achieved in such little time! I look back at where our family was, more than 12 months ago, and where we are now, and I can only be grateful to you, Melissa, and your ever-patient family, for making such weekend experiences (and the longer experiences) available. That’s why all of my kids and I will experience all of these together!

Peter from Sydney, NSW

This “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience has been excellent, spending quality time, some very valuable lessons, whilst simple in its message, very true and not always (or often) practised. It will make me change behaviours with both of my children, and probably as importantly, the way I need to affirm my wife. I really enjoyed, and learnt so much from the presentations, and of course really enjoyed sharing experiences with my daughter. The value for money of the entire weekend was excellent… I can’t believe how good it was… and even better than I first thought it would be.

Richard from Adelaide, SA

Bonding with Dad was great, and everyone was lovely. The activities were fun. Overall, I think this “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience was one of the best I’ve ever had. My favourite memory will be when Dad told me all the things he loved about me, and how special I am. I felt loved and speechless. It will be a moment I will treasure forever. I will tell others about these adventure weekends, because I want other people to experience what I experienced.

Lauren from Toowoomba, QLD – Age 11 years

This “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience has been the most fantastic experience of my life with my daughter so far. It now focuses my relationship not just with my daughter, but with other women in my life too – Mother, wife, social and work associates etc. My relations with all women are now encompassed by what I have learnt. But none more so than my renewed commitment to my wife and daughters, forever. My favourite memory from the weekend was my daughter’s eyes, after I had affirmed her. I cannot place a value on this time. In fact, it was too cheap!!!

Peter from Shepparton, VIC

This “Fathering Girls” Father-Daughter Adventure Weekend experience was a beautiful idea and a special way to get away from our busy lives. Because I have a sister, I never really get one on one time with my Dad, and that’s what I found really special.
