July 18, 2018 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm

To be a good teacher and role model for their children, fathers need a combination of parenting, relationship, and co-parenting skills. This webinar looked at ways in which responsible fatherhood programs are working to improve child well-being by helping fathers enhance their skills in those areas. Presenters discussed how the different skill sets intersect, described the work that their programs are doing with fathers, and offered tips for other fatherhood practitioners.
