The Fatherhood

Support and Skills for Dad's...

The Fatherhood, is open to any and all fathers in the community.  All groups offered by the Navigating Fatherhood project will incorporate educational and skill-building content and activities while also providing support to fathers as they balance their responsibilities as a parent.  Topics covered will include:

  • Roles Dad’s play in children’s lives
  • Challenges fathers commonly face
  • Positive discipline skills
  • Communication with our partner or ex
  • The role of attachment in child development
  • The importance of play in a child’s development
  • How to encourage good nutrition and active lifestyles for our kids
  • The importance of self-care and healthy coping strategies
