The Directive: Sept 6, 2017

The Directive is what Dad Central uses to stay in touch with you.  This is where we post interesting news, ideas, resources, and some fun stuff about fatherhood.  It is a mix of info for dads and info for those working to support fatherhood.  Enjoy!

For New Dads – what’s in your tool kit?

Check out some ideas on what goes into the dad diaper bag/toolkit.  What kind of things are “non-negotiable” for you?

Wanted: someone to create ePub versions of Dad Central Booklets

We have paper/pdf copies of all our resources and would like to get them produced in ePub versions.  If you think you can help us out with that, please send us an email.

What do Dads think about Fatherhood in Canada?

We will be releasing more info from the National Fatherhood Survey later this fall.  One interesting result: almost 74% of dads rate their communities as supportive offatherhood AND just over 50% of dads believe that fatherhood in Canada “needs improvement”.
