Childhood Anxiety

Dads of 3 to 5 year old Children Needed for Online Survey!

As a dad to three beautiful girls, and with a history of anxiety challenges in the family, this is a topic of great importance to me. I always worry that decisions I make, or don't make, may be effecting my girls. We have spoken about anxiety with our kids and we always encourage our girls to share their feelings with us in the hope that we can quickly identify any challenges that may effect our kids, such as anxiety.

If you're a dad to kids aged between 3 and 5 then you can do your bit to help. This research is being conducted by researchers at the University of Melbourne. Fathers play an important role in their children's healthy development. In this study, we want to find out more about how dads contribute to their child's emotional and social wellbeing. The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete

Over the past year (well alomst) TackleNappy have been broadcasting the weekly TackleNappy Radio Show via Funky Kids Radio. We've recorded twenty five shows and discussed topics as diverse as depression, domestic abuse, to swimming lessons and sex. Self-funded Funky Kids Radio has been a labour of love over the past 15 months for founders Michael and Rachel Cooper. Unfortunately the demands of running a radio station, in addition to traditional day jobs as well as raising a young family, have become too great. "It has pretty much taken one parent out of action a lot of the time and the basic APRA licence we are broadcasting under does not allow any income generation," says Rachel. "That is why we have launched a Pozible crowd-funding campaign this month to generate some support to help keep us streaming." Families can pledge and receive rewards including broadcast of special birthday stories and programming their own shows and organisations can support the campaign and receive low cost advertising packages in a growing medium.

Chubba & Bucky chat over a beer about their upcoming date night - Shane Warne The Musical at Hamer Hall (Arts Centre Melbourne) on June 20. it's the first ever TackleNappy Date Night. Bucky & Chubba can't wait to see this multi-award winning show and all-star cast including Eddie Perfect, Lisa McCune, Shane Jacobson and Christie Whelan-Browne. I've been promised that this show is bigger and better than ever - it's been updated to include the years since Warnie's retirement from Australian cricket and his relationship with Liz Hurley. Oh, Liz aint too happy about it either (Read this - Liz Hurley takes to Twitter to slam Shane Warne: The Musical).

Bucky: Chubba, I can't wait to see Shane Warne The Musical on 20 June. What are you looking forward to most about it?

Chubba: Seeing how they incorporate text messaging into the show. You?

A diverse show as we talk about placentas, Father's Day & Footy. We play a couple of songs you haven't heard for a while too.

We play classic songs from great indigenous artists in tribute to a great Aussie who is no longer with us. Bucky tells us about his experiences volunteering for a charity fundraiser event and Chubba tells us about a birthday he'd rather forget.
