NURTURING FATHER – A man who actively provides guidance, love and support to enhance the development and growth of children for whom he cares.
Why? Because we do fun stuff, get our hands messy, tell crazy stories and kids think we’re awesome. We give hugs and high-fives, apply band aids to boo boos and fix broken hearts too.
Dad, do you wonder just how well you’re doing raising your kids?
Want to know if your fathering is positive?
Do you hope your kids will come out better than you did?
That’s where we come in - The DAD Project is your guide for good dads who desire to become GREAT DADS.
