The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania, Inc. (“The Council”), in collaboration with Central Bucks Family YMCA, is offering a program to fathers beginning Monday, Oct. 28, 2013. In recent years the role of fatherhood has evolved from what was considered the “norm” in the 1950s. Today, we are looking at the “new normal” of parenting, a healthy balance of work, life and family. Fatherhood, whether the father is single, married, divorced, widowed, part of a blended family, a new father or starting later in life, comes with many responsibilities and privileges and plays a critical role in the development of children. Research has shown that fathers presence can foster healthy physcial, emotional and social development in children. When fathers are involved in the lives of their children, their children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior. To assit fathers to achieve the healthy balance of work, life and family, and through a grant from Foundations Community Partnership, The Council will provide a free program to father’s in Bucks County.
