By about the fourth class, something clicked, and I felt connected to my facilitators, as well as the other fathers in my class. Over the remaining weeks I built up a bond with these other men as well as my coaches.

It was such a blessing to see these young men use the tools they received to get custody of children, and mend marriages. This class has been one that every man needs to attend. I enjoy the small group and the friendships we develop.

This group is a true example of men mentoring men, not just with talk but help to elevate their self-esteem and their total outlook on life. Building confidence with clothing and character.

5 Traits of a 24/7 Dad
Have you ever wondered which traits describe a great dad? Would they involve nurturing, providing, and guiding? While those are great traits to have, there are five traits (or characteristics) that provide the rich soil for those traits to grow. These are the specific areas for dads to work on if they want to bear fruit in their fathering:
1. Self Awareness
Most dads believe they can be replaced by someone else in their children’s lives, so it’s critical that dads understand that they provide a unique and irreplaceable role in the lives of their children. Great dads are aware of themselves as a man and aware of the significant impact they have in their family.
2. Caring for Self
A great dad knows the importance of taking care of himself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
This ensures he can be involved in his children’s activities
and be a healthy role model to them as well.
3. Fathering Skills
These are the unique skills dad brings to the parenting process that complements mom’s strengths and weaknesses. When it comes to helping a child with homework, for example, dad may love helping with English, while mom may be more comfortable helping with math.
4. Parenting Skills
A great dad 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.
5. Relationship Skills
A great dad builds and maintains healthy and supportive relationships with his children, wife/partner, family, friends, and community.
