Happy Fathers’ Day to All

A Father and a Son

The first Father’s Day in the USA was celebrated on June 19, 1910. One thing has stayed the same since then: “Fathering” takes a big heart.Fathers who are birth parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, and any man who truly plays an instructional and influential role in the life of a child, like Spaulding mentors, should all be remembered – and thanked – on Father’s Day. Because of their love, they have enriched a child’s life. Fathers and those planning on assuming the role can develop and sharpen their skills through two new programs at Care of Southeastern Michigan.Care offers in-home parenting classes utilizing Nurturing Parenting and/or 24/7 Dad programs. The positive parenting classes for families with children from newborn to teen-age help parents stay on course. CARE’s free parenting classes help parents develop skills and provide important information needed to reach and support kids in meaningful ways to improve behavior.Parents can choose from three different classes, with specialized information specific to the age of their child:

  • Parenting Young Children — for parents of children 0-5
  • Parenting School Age Children —for parents of children 5-12
  • Parenting Teens – for parents of children 12-18
