Today I am very proud of the team at The Fathering Project for working so hard to launch our new Fathering Channel to bridge social isolation and build a virtual community for our fathers, kids and families in these challenging and unique times.
Whilst we can look at all the stress, anxiety and hardships, I want to emphasis that we can also look at how to make this time count, spending more quality time with our kids, our family and being there for them as a dad and an inspiration every day. I know it’s not easy, but I remain optimistic that if we all work together, self -isolate, support each other, and stay motivated, we will get through this, and as a result have deeper relationship with our kids.
I plan to share regular updates on what’s happening in the COVID-19 situation, plus stop by every Monday to say hi and share some of my insights on fathering which I hope you will find helpful.
