Be A Dad Campaign

Fathers are more important than we know.

Just a few days before Father’s Day, the Family Resource Centre (FRC) have organized a Be a Dad Daily campaign that strives to get fathers to be more hands on in their children’s daily lives.

Organisers have suggested simple activities that range from making breakfast, packing lunches, helping with pick-ups, and organising a trip to the barbershop to saying ‘I Love You’.

The campaign will run throughout the month of June, as FRC hosts events and media spots that highlight the ever-changing role of the father.

On Saturday, 7 June 2014, participants of the Father’s First programme will enjoy a day of family BBQ and games.

FRC also encourages the public to stay tuned for features on Cayman27, Radio Cayman and the Cayman Compass where fathers will talk about the difference between their fathers and the way that they father today.

Facebook fans can also visit the Family Resource Centre’s page and submit photos to the “Get Caught Being a Dad” competition.

Today and every day, FRC’s Programme Coordinator Miriam Foster encourages all fathers, and male caregivers to play an active role in children’s lives.

Ms Foster notes that children with active father figures are more confident, less vulnerable to abuse, and better able to deal with frustration, and become independent. They are also more likely to mature into compassionate adults, with high self-esteem and enhanced social skills. She also expressed FRC’s gratitude to event sponsors Hedge Fund Cares.
