I’m a fan of the National Fatherhood Initiative and its dynamite leader, Roland Warren. I’ve written for their blog and was recently invited to contribute to their research publication Father Facts. Quite an honor, particularly since it’s something they describe as “a go-to resource for policymakers, the press, fatherhood practitioners, and anyone interested in supporting responsible fatherhood. Copies are given out to every member of the Senate and House, state governors, and key media contacts.”
My two cents helping shape federal policy? Sounds like a great opportunity.
Here’s what they’ve asked me to write about:
It would be great if you could contribute an essay for Father Facts 6 on the rise (or lack thereof?) of dads online and in the social media world. I think your perspective is a really good one, and this would give you an opportunity to share your perspective with the people in media, government, and the nonprofit world who care most about fatherhood.
So I’m asking you, dear reader, for some help. What’s your take on this topic? What resources do you think are splendid examples of fathers being engaged and sharing their experiences and vision online? Who’s doing it right in the social media world?
Thanks for your two cents!
