Dads come in many shapes and sizes.
A father may not be biologically related to his child or live with his child all the time. He might be a grandfather, step-father, foster father or adoptive father. Children can have more than one father, or have relationships with other males who parent and care for them.
There is no one right way to be a father. Each father brings unique ideas and experiences to being a parent or carer and contributes to the mental health and wellbeing of his child and family.
