Parenting Tools for Dads
Dads like tools, so we made a child-growth-tracker tool for dads (mom can use too)!
Now you can track your child's development from birth until they're out of your house!
Our free "Countdown to Growing Up" tool helps you know what to expect and not to expect. You can also use the tool to take notes and save for your child's next visit to the pediatrician.
Want to connect with your child? We can help!
We you share your favorite stuff with your child—something magical happens! We call it, "actually connecting with your child!" Our eGuide is designed for a dad of a school-aged child or the dad of a teenage. Sit down with your child and really get to know them as they get to know you.
CURRENT ADVOCACY INITIATIVE
National Fatherhood Initiative believes that federally-funded, community-based organizations running fatherhood programs need funding not only for service delivery, but to procure "capacity-building" services and training. Capacity-building services and training allow organizations to become more effective in their service delivery, and help build higher-quality organizations. The need and demand in the field for such services is high, but current federal fatherhood legislation does not provide the critical funding for it.
The sustainability of these community-building and life-changing fatherhood programs depends on the provision of capacity-building funding.
INDIVIDUALS: Help us tell Congress and the White House (using the widget below) that the next round of funding for fatherhood programs (which comes through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families legislation and is administered by the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families) should allow entities receiving funds to use a portion of their funds for critical capacity-building services.
ORGANIZATIONS: If your organization would like to endorse this idea, please visit this page, where you will fill out a form to be listed as an "endorsing organization" alongside National Fatherhood Initiative.
