Fatherhood for the New Millennium
"Father" or "Dad”- What’s the Difference?

Lecture and Discussion- Participants are encouraged to make the workshop more relevant to their concerns by asking questions and actively participating.

Society is changing. It takes a village to raise a child. But the village has changed as well. The families that used to make up the village have also changed. In some ways, fathers are more important than ever in the family. Due to economic and social changes, the roles of the mother and of the father (of the female and male authority figures) are changing from year to year. The roles for grandparents, uncles and aunts, and other members of the extended family have also changed. What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a father? to be a dad?
