This project involved organizing and offering a series of 12 fatherhood group meetings to low-income fathers whose families are already enrolled in a local site of the parent education and family support program, and hence already receive monthly home visits. Low-income fathers who participated in at least eight hours of skill-based parenting education through fatherhood group meetings had higher participation rates in home visits and reported improved skills and knowledge of parenting, enhanced communication/relationships with children, and improved patience and understanding of age-appropriate behaviors.
