  • Bravo, respect and love for putting this together! All children need present and loving parents but parenting has unfortunately become a lost art. Nothing is more important

  • Dee, in theory, I agree that it sounds great. However, I highly doubt that the targeted audience will not be in attendance. The dads who go will be dads that are already good dads and want to be better dads. The thug gangbangers out shooting people up aren’t going to stop what they are doing and they aren’t going to suddenly become non-absent fathers because of some workshop.

    • that should say that I doubt that the targeted audience will be in attendance, not will not be….
