This Mother’s Day – whether you’re preparing breakfast in bed, Skyping from far away, remembering a loved one or sharing the day with your mum, step-mum, foster-carer, grandmother or mother-figure – we wish all families a safe and happy day of celebration.
We encourage dads and father-figures to always reflect on how they are ‘fathering for the family,’ and the important role they play in creating positive family dynamics. We know that engaged fathers help to create functional families – whatever the structure may be.
Happy Mother’s Day from The Fathering Project.
