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!
Hope and Help for Dads Behind Bars
We look forward to being part of a project with the Canadian Families and Corrections Network to bring support and resources to fathers in prisons across Canada. With funding from Movember (which is really appreciated) the CFCN has potential to make a huge impact. Be watching for more details as they come available.
The Dad Directory is filling up, but there is always room for more. Do you have a program or service you would like to add to the directory? You can check it out here.
Dad Central Toronto
There are a few Dad Central networks popping up across the province (Ottawa, Windsor, Niagara, to name a few). A new one will be meeting for the first time in Toronto on Oct 25. If you are in Toronto and are interested in meeting to discuss fatherhood in the city, check out the details here.
Book of the Month
Hey Dads, there are tonnes of great books out there to read with our kids. Here are a couple of suggestions: Where Did Daddy’s Hair Go (ages 4-7) and The Book Thief (ages 8-10). Reading with your kids does a tonne of good for them, you, and your relationship. Read something with your kids today!
