The fathers present a special dimension to our program. They are our demonstrators for each new skill that we work on. The kids love to watch their father succeed at the skills and give them the extra confidence to learn the skill that their father just showed them. Sometimes the fathers might not get it the first time so we spend some time talking with the children and asking what the fathers can do to help improve the skill as well as sharing in a few good laughs.
At the end of the lesson we always take some time to relax in the hot tub where we have some good old fashioned family bonding time.
This program is offered to every father in Cuyahoga County. There is a $5 fee per child and it includes an hour lesson. So far we have been able to seve 40 participants ranging in ages from 5 to 55.
