Dads*, this message is for you.... If you’re the father of a child, that means the door is open for you to make a big difference. Did you know that just giving your children your attention and support can influence them to do better in school, and to avoid drugs and premature sexual activity?
So Dads, let’s be a positive presence in our children’s lives. This is a day when we’re asking Cleveland fathers of all ages and races to take a stand for our children, and join in a day of family-friendly fun and activism Bring the kids out and come mingle with hundreds of other dads. Together, let’s put our children on the road to a successful school year.
