Podcast: Dr Mark Cross and Jon Coll on fathering, co-parenting and raising boys

In this Fathering First podcast we sit down with 2021 Community Father of the Year Award Winner, Dr. Mark Cross, and his husband and partner of 20 years, Jon Coll.
We talk all things fathering, what it’s like to co-parent with their two boy’s mothers, raising boys and looking towards the future.
A really great discussion and insight into Mark and Jon’s fatherhood journey, raising their two boys together with their son’s mothers, who just live down the road!

Good fathers and father figures come in all shapes and sizes and from lots of different backgrounds, so it doesn’t matter who you are, or what you are, loving parents have far more similarities than not.” – Dr. Mark Cross
