dad & me
dad and me - our marquee program in supporting and promoting father and child interactivity took center stage in 2015 and continues to grow with a commitment in using education as its core. We begin discussion with national and world wide organization in understanding how to better tap into and leverage their programs to service dad and me. From the UN to the CERN and IUCN, we are now working on some very exciting collaborations to be conducted at the local level. Whether it be a collaboration with a University Engineering Department where dads and kids get a chance to build their own LEDs to place inside halloween pumpkins to programming robots to spending time on the beach through an obstacle course to doing a hike we come back to a single beacon;
The best gift we can give to a child (and ourselves) is time.
Look for a big announcement this year that will see an expansion of Dad and Me and promoting the incredible value it has for the child, the father, the entire family and community.
we are not alone here in this thinking.
The Dad and Me campaign is a way for dads to promote and celebrate their role set up their children for a lifetime of healthy development — something psychologists, sociologist and even the White House deems vital.
Did you know that preschoolers with actively involved fathers have stronger verbal skills?
Or that girls with strong relationships with their fathers do better in mathematics?
And that fathers’ involvement seems to encourage children’s exploration of the world around them and confidence in their ability to solve problems.
That means dads can help their kids grow up to be smarter, more confident and solve problems easier just by being there for them. Playing laser tag. Going to a museum. Exploring a nature trail. All the kinds of things dads and kids will commit to do together as part of the Dad and Me campaign!
fodada is keen to start a revolution that redefines what being a great dad means, and is introducing the Dad and Me campaign to spark a radical change that sweeps the country. Want us to help with setting up a program in your community? Contact us at email@example.com
