FRC encourages dads to get involved with kids

| 06/06/2014

(CNS): The Family Resource Centre (FRC) is organising  a Be a Dad Daily campaign to get fathers to be more hands on in their children’s daily lives. Ahead of Father’s Day, 15 June organisers are encouraging dads to make breakfast, pack lunches, help with pick-ups or organise a trip to the barbershop. The campaign will run throughout the month of June, as FRC hosts events and media spots highlighting the ever-changing role of the father. FRC’s Programme Coordinator Miriam Foster said fathers, and male caregivers should play an active role in children’s lives. Foster said kids with active dads are more confident, less vulnerable to abuse, better able to deal with frustration, independent and more likely to mature into compassionate adults, with high self-esteem and enhanced social skills.

This Saturday, participants of the Father’s First programme will enjoy a day of family BBQ and games and the

FRC also encouraged people to tune into Cayman27 and Radio Cayman where fathers will be talking about the difference between their fathers and the way that they father today. Facebook fans can also visit the Family Resource Centre’s page and submit photos to the “Get Caught Being a Dad” competition.
