1. Purpose of Why Dad’s Matter:
Why Dad’s Matter (WDM) is formed to accomplish legislative changes to remedy the current disenfranchisement of fathers and dad’s in the current legal systems, courts, mainstream media and educational entities in our nation today. WDM plans to provide resources for father skills improvment. We discovered after years of torment in this horrible system that we were not an isolated case but there are hundreds and thousands subjected to the same torment; further verifying the enormous scope of the problem; The scope of disenfranchisement and Parental Alienation justifies legislative changes.
WHY DAD’S MATTER By Glen Gibellina SARASOTA, FL. 2013 – Mission Statement: Why Dad’s Matter was created as a means by which dads can gain parenting skills, network with other fathers, receive free education on topics specific to men and be connected to community resources. Why Dad’s Matter has brought together a broad spectrum of men of all professions and ages, all of whom are committed to being successful, nurturing Dads. Thanks to this common goal no one has ever felt like a stranger; the friendships are immediate and the camaraderie sincere for both fathers and children alike.
WHY DAD’S MATTER consists of three components: Support, Education and Male Involvement. These three components work in conjunction with each other to provide a wealth of knowledge and a platform for father/child interaction. Support:
WHY DAD’S MATTER has partnered with the several organizations so that our participants have a nurturing environment where they can share their experiences, hear valuable
information from experts and learn effective parenting techniques. Male Involvement: This will be the opportunity for the group to have fun with their children! Through games, field trips, sporting events, etc., the dads will enjoy spending quality time with their child/children while strengthening their paternal bonds and building memories that will last a lifetime. Education: There will be free, male-centered, educational sessions held regularly for men only to discuss topics such as: male sterilization, child support/custody, infant/child safety, mental health services and appropriate child discipline.
