SUPER DADS, SUPER KIDS

Free 8-Session Class for Dads Only

Super kids . . . they come from super dads. 

Though it would be nice if children were able to grow on their own and develop into mature adults who contribute to this world, it takes a lot of sweat and effort for this to happen. Good kids don’t just happen . . . they are nurtured by caring, involved, and responsible adults. 

For the 8 sessions of Super Dads, Super Kids, the focus is on responsible fathers – men who make a conscious choice to be the solid role models kids are longing for and need today.

An 8-session virtual, certificate class
Starting April 10th, 2023
Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:00-5:00 pm (4 weeks)
