We’ve been talking about Fathering in 15™ for a while now, our newest online fatherhood resource released in 2018—and we might not stop talking about it! That’s because our biggest announcement of 2019 is that we just released Fathering in 15™ in Spanish.
That’s right! All of the text, videos, and printable handouts have been translated into Spanish and are available via a separate subscription to the Spanish Translation of Fathering in 15™.
This is exciting because when we released Fathering in 15™ in English, we heard from some organizations who needed a Spanish counterpart for the English version. We also heard from some organizations who were unable to acquire the English subscription unless they were able to subscribe to a Spanish version as well.
Of course, a few other reasons we keep talking about Fathering in 15™ are because it’s flexible, accessible, and easy to use by a multitude of organizations. It also resonates with all types of dads. (If you’re still not sure, refer to the awesome word map I created for this blog post to see more words that practitioners use to describe it!)
So, in an effort to help more fatherhood practitioners understand why Fathering in 15™ helps so many organizations work with dads, I asked our more than 100 subscribers this simple question:
Why do you/your organization like using Fathering in 15™ – and tell me in 15 words or less.
