Father-friendly organizations

For a number of years I’ve been active in school-based and community organizations dealing with children and youth. Recently, I have observed more young men caring for small children, and that’s a good thing. But there’s more to be done behind the scenes.

Here’s my suggestions to create a father-friendly environment at your school or community organization.

  • Include fathers on your advisory committee or board of directors in order to create an organizational voice for fathers;
  • If you are part of social organization dealing with families, promote fathering as being part of a family;
  • Provide awareness of the role fathers play in the lives of their children.

Don’t delay! There’s never been a better time to support a father being involved.
