Destination Daddy envisions a community where every child has a “positive” father or father figure involved in their lives.
Destination Daddy brings together men from all family circumstances (custodial, non-custodial, step-fathers, new fathers) who need help with understanding how to be nurturing and supportive,
As a group, participants explore their experiences with their own fathers, and with the guidance of the Destination Daddy facilitator, they learn about their children’s needs and how to meet them. They learn why they need to be their children’s first teachers, and how important it is to provide loving praise and a nurturing and secure environment for their children to gain self-esteem and confidence. Emphasis is also placed on maintaining a positive and supportive co-parenting relationship with the child(ren)’s mother, whether the parents are together or separated.
Parent education programs focus on enhancing parenting practices and behaviors, such as developing and practicing positive discipline techniques, learning age-appropriate child development skills and milestones, promoting positive play and interaction between parents and children, and locating and accessing community services and supports.
