Welcome to the new DadTalk blog on fatherhood.gov!
Here on the DadTalk blog, you’re going to find updates on opportunities for dads to connect with kids; information for fatherhood programs; and insights from dads from around the country. The DadTalk blog and fatherhood.gov are a part of President Obama’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative.
President Obama started this initiative because, like millions of fathers across our country, being a dad is the most important job he has. He also grew up without his own father, and sees how fatherlessness in America is impacting far too many kids. So the President is joining with dads from around the country to impact this issue and do everything we can to support our young people.
Here on the DadTalk blog, you can expect to find:
- Deals, news and events for dads and kids
- Articles and essays from everyday dads and celebrity fathers
- Insights into moms’ views of fatherhood
- Information on new policy, programs and research
This is an exciting time for fatherhood in our country! Let’s keep the conversation going.
--Michael Strautmanis and Joshua DuBois of The White House, co-coordinators of the President’s fatherhood initiative
