Father’s Day resources

It’s the one day of the year when you just have to laugh at the dad jokes and give some extra appreciation to the father figures in your life. 

The positive impact of an involved, caring and supportive father in the lives of their children cannot be underemphasized. Fathers are essential to healthy child development so let’s encourage our learners to make their Dads feel special every day. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Do something outdoors together
  • Spend one-on-one time with him
  • Talk about something he is interested in
  • Ask him to teach you something
  • Talk to him about what’s going on in your life
  • Ask him about his best memories
  • Tell him that you love him…often
