Our Square One Healthy Families staff recently attended the 18th Annual New England fathering conference. The conference, entitled “Dads: Involved Today, Committed Forever,” welcomed dads, family service providers, social workers, health professionals, educators, program directors, state and federal representatives, and father advocates who participated in two and a half days of learning and sharing. The title of this year’s conference reflected the understanding that every father leaves an indelible mark on his child’s life. Involved fathers positively affect their significant others, spouses, co-parents and family members as much as they do their children. The best formula for raising healthy, happy children is men and women working together to meet their needs. As in the past, the conference featured a talented, diverse array of speakers and presenters who inspired and challenged us.
