A father’s role is critical to a child’s healthy development.  This connection builds a strong foundation in language, critical thinking, physical skills, social and emotional learning, and so much more!  Join us and other fathers and father-figures for a Zoom series to explore parenting tips and learn ways to strengthen your relationship with your child.  Attendance at all sessions is not required.  Join us for one, several, or all sessions!
