At BGCBigs, we focus on providing caring relationships and safe spaces for children and youth, but we also know that it’s incredibly important to support parents and families. We believe that the healthy development of a child is best fostered within the context of a caring and loving family.
In light of the fast approaching Father’s Day Weekend, we stumbled across this interesting article about the powerful role Dads play in the lives of their children. According to the article, Dads are not only great role models for breaking gender stereotypes but also for promoting equality to both their sons and daughters. We think it’s probably not a long shot to guess that other male role models in children’s lives can have similar positive influences.
We hope you find this an interesting read, and to all the Father’s out there – Happy Father’s Day!
