T.E.A.M. Dad Boosts Confidence and Skills in Fathering
A new and free program in North Central Florida helps fathers increase their awareness and knowledge about what it takes to be a good father. T.E.A.M. Dad, which stands for Teaching, Empowering, Advocating for and Mentoring men on their fatherhood journey is inviting fathers, grandfathers or role models involved with a child under the age of three or men with a pregnant partner to enroll.
The program provides a dedicated T.E.A.M. Dad support specialist, who is an experienced father and/or who has received extensive training in the 24/7 Dad® curriculum to meet with fathers for a series of sessions. Sessions are held at a time and place that is convenient for the participant. Topics for the sessions include the father’s role, discipline, children’s growth, communication, working with mom and co-parenting, and more.
