Welcome, Dads, This is a dads resource site which is dedicated to all the hardworking dads that are making a positive difference in their families lives, feel proud and empowered for your efforts.
We should always resolve ourselves to continue to push forward and improve the lives of our families and children. Every year brings different challenges but we must rise up and tackle these obstacles head on because we know we can. This is particularly true for all the older dads out there.

To all the dads and Parents out there here is an important message; For some unknown reasons parents are forgetting about their children that are strapped in the back seats, literally leaving their vehicles and going about their day to only realize too late they left their kids in these hot vehicles. I am saddened to hear about these preventable incidents and I am asking all dads and parents to be nosey and check unattended vehicles that have car seats in them to see if there are children still strapped in their seats. If you see any children locked in any vehicle please call 911 immediately or break the glass and remove these children, you may be the only person that prevents that child's death.

For all the dads of older children, Bullying in schools is a big problem and this needs to be monitored by talking with your children about this form of conflict. We need to step it up and support our children enduring these taunts through discussion and conflict resolution. I have posted information and resources on this subject to help empower you with this serious issue.
