Stewart Robinson (from Arvo Church) is seeking to establish our own GAC Fathering Project Group.
There are dozens of these groups around the country including one at Gymea Baptists, Hurstville Anglican and Miranda North Public School. These are not religious groups and are open to everyone in the community. Stewart writes:
“We aim to under this banner to bring you ‘Fathers and Father figures’ 4 Events per year (minimum), 2 of these Father and child events and 2 Fathers only events.
It’s easy to get lost in our other roles and forget what our first job is. Yet it’s the most important job we’ll ever do. Because what we do, or don’t do as Dads, has an enormous impact on the happiness and health of the kids we love. Together, we can help build resilience, self-respect and emotional intelligence. We can show boys how men should treat women. We can show girls how good men behave. And, we can give our kids a great deal of self-worth, just by showing up and being there.
The Fathering Project aims to positively promote the important role of Fathers, and Father figures, through the formation of Dads Groups in schools, communities and the work place.
It only takes one Dad to suggest that a group be formed and create an enjoyable, informal and social environment for Fathers, and Father figures that builds interaction, knowledge and skills.”
