A Second Chance for Fathers to Connect With Their Kids

June 13, 2022

An estimated 10 million children in the United States see their fathers less than once a month. Research tells us what happens to boys and girls without dads or stable father figures in their lives: poverty rates double, emotional and behavioral health issues increase, high school dropout rates increase, as do crime and prison rates. There are a lot of reasons that keep fathers separated from their children. Through his advocacy and mental health center, therapist Dr. Charles C. Daniels, Jr. empowers fathers to be more present by providing mentorship and community, so they learn to forgive their own shortcomings and, most importantly, learn how to reconnect with their kids.
