Father Engagement Series: A Single Mom’s Story About Why A Kid (and his Mom) Needs A Dad
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Using humor and personal narratives, single mother Shannon Ford shares her journey of parenting her 17-year-old son Jacob. Without his father in the picture, Shannon and Jacob both have had to count on their village to get where they are today. This session will explore the statistics of fatherless children, examine the parenting differences (not deficiencies) between mothers and fathers, and offer tips to share with single mothers or fathers when dealing with the other parent.
