Held at FRCâ€™s office, six sessions will focus on areas such as responsible fatherhood, dealing with childrenâ€™s behaviours, managing conflict and handling anger, the art of communication, coping as a single father and building a support network.
Miriam Foster, Programme Coordinator noted that, â€śThe meetings will be down-to-earth and practical as we help these men fulfil their roles as effective parents, partners and workers.â€ť
The new programme will also empower fathers and provide them with the tools necessary to build healthy relationships as they make positive contributions in their childrenâ€™s lives.
Minister responsible for Community Affairs, Gender and Housing the Hon. Mike Adam, MBE, JP expressed that, â€śBeing a father myself, it is important that we secure loving relationships with our children.â€ť
He added, â€śSpending quality time and expressing unconditional love will strengthen the individual and the family.â€ť
For six weeks, starting Monday, August 20, fathers will get a chance to rediscover their roles as fathers and work toward enhancing the relationships they have with their children.
Ms Foster further added, â€śBeing a father first, is about realizing that, above all, you are a father and you matter in the life of your children and they deserve your best.â€ť
