Many resources for “parent education” are primarily designed for use with mothers and not surprisingly, the majority of parent educators work with mothers.  However, service providers who work with mothers often realize the importance of working with fathers as well.  Our resources and information are designed to attract and hold the attention of fathers.  In general, fathers prefer programs that:                     

  • Engage them in the activity
  • Teach them skills that help them to become a better father
  • Provide a balance of serious content and light-hearted banter
  • Use methaphors that relate to their interest and vocations
  • Help them turn their new knowledge and skills into action
  • and many other areas………..
