Fatherhood Program: What Does the Fatherhood Program Mean to Me [and] 10 Ways To Be a Better Dad.
This document is comprised of three brochures focusing on aspects of Georgia's Fatherhood Program, a program to promote increased involvement of non-custodial parents in their children lives. The first brochure highlights the goals and features of the program, which is open to any non-custodial parent paying child support and which offers job training in addition to parent support. The second brochure addresses the question: What does the Fatherhood Program mean to me?, explaining in greater detail the benefits of the program to participating parents and their children, as well as implications for the custodial parent. The third brochure highlights 10 ways to be a better father, including respecting the child's mother, earning the right to be heard, showing affection, and realizing that a father's job is never done.
