Dads For Life
Dads for Life (DFL) is a national fathers movement that seeks to inspire, mobilise and involve fathers to become good influencers in their children's lives... for life!
The movement is strongly anchored in research that highlights the distinct benefits of paternal involvement on child development in terms of improved cognitive, socio-emotional, psychological and academic outcomes. Active paternal involvement is also linked to better couple relationships among parents, lower levels of maternal stress, and positive changes in fathers' self-identity, all of which suggest overall benefits for the family.
DFL at GMS(P) was launched in 2011 and has been organising activities to facilitate a 3-pronged approach A.C.T. in mobilising fathers of GMS(P) students to ACT:
Be Aware of the importance of their roles as husbands and fathers.
Commit to become good fathers and role models to their children.
Spend Time to acquire Tools and bring Transformation to lives.
