My students need a duffle bag to keep their essential parenting tools and resources in. It will be filled with Dad stuff (educational parenting resources, diapers, baby wipes, a book to read to their child, etc...).
The students involved are teen fathers in Milwaukee Public Schools. The teen fathers often are the underserved population when it comes to supporting and offering services to teen parents. These young men will be involved in a program that will help them understand the impact and importance of the early father-child bonding and the responsibility they have to be connected in their child's lives. These young men will be learning skills connected to becoming better fathers.
We will be empowering these teen fathers to be knowledgeable, active and engaged to have healthy attachments with their child.
This project will provide a sports duffle bag filled with specific tools: (diapers, baby wipes, a copy of Good Night Moon book and other books, parenting articles, tools and resources) to help these young men understand essential aspects of parenting and ways of being connected to their child. This duffle bag will have educational parenting tools and resources in it that will equip and empower these young men into becoming better connected and responsible fathers.
The Dad's Matter Project Duffle bags will equip teen fathers to have the resources available to help empower them in becoming confident, competent, engaged and connected fathers.
