When a father completes the parenting program, he becomes a “24/7 Dad” who:
Is aware of himself as a man and aware of the significant impact he has in his family. He is in touch with his moods and feelings/emotions, his capabilities, his strengths, and his limitations.
Is a man who takes care of himself. He is healthy, eats the proper foods, exercises to stay in shape, has a strong spiritual connection with his community, and chooses friends who reinforce his healthy choices.
Is very aware of the significant role he has in the family. He is a positive role model. He capitalizes on his knowledge of the unique contributions (e.g., skills) he brings and that his wife/the mother of his children brings to raising his children (i.e., the difference between “fathering” and “mothering”).
Is a nurturing parent who clearly understands and accepts the importance his parenting skills have in developing the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual and creative needs of his children.
Works to build and maintain healthy and supportive relationships with his children, wife, family, friends, and community.
