Guiding Dads Through Our Fatherhood Programs

Fathers play a significant role in their kids’ lives that others cannot fill. That is why at Stepping Stones Therapy Center, we offer fatherhood programs to help dads be the best parents their children can look up to.

Why We Focus on Father's Engagement

Our programs are designed to support fathers in:

  • Building Self-Awareness, Self-Care, and Relational Skills
  • Improving Their Parenting Skills
  • Increasing Their Knowledge of Effective Fathering
  • Promoting a Positive Relationship With the Child

What To Expect in Our Program

We offer a 12-week culturally responsive course, including individual coaching sessions. Fathers will also engage in the community, events, and activities in their children’s lives.

Benefits of a Healthy Father-Child Relationship

Better Chance of Success

Children who have a closer relationship with their fathers are more likely to have higher confidence as a child. They are also more likely to go to college and find stable employment after high school.

Improved Relationship Later in Life

The patterns a father sets in the relationships with his children will dictate how his children relate with other people.

Better Stress Management

The child is more likely to:

  • Express Their Emotions Healthily
  • Have a Greater Tolerance for Stress/Frustration
  • Have an Increased Ability To Resist Peer Pressure and Stand Up for Themselves
  • Have Less Hesitation and Fear in New Situations

Reduced Behavioral Problems

Research shows that children whose fathers are engaged in their lives have fewer behavioral concerns.

Reduced Psychological Problems

Girls who have a good relationship with their fathers have shown fewer signs of depression than those who do not have one.

Successful Early Development

Studies have shown that when fathers are affectionate and supportive, it dramatically affects a child’s cognitive and social development. It also instills an overall sense of well-being and self-confidence.
