The Million Father March 2007

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Saturday, August 4, 2007

 

· A father who actively participates in the educational and social development life of a child is invaluable and irreplaceable.

· Research shows that children whose fathers take active roles in their educational lives earn better grades, get better test scores, enjoy school more and are more likely to graduate from high school and attend college.

· Additionally, children have fewer behavior problems when fathers speak and listen to their children regularly and are active in their lives.

· A good father is part of a good parent team and is critical to strong family structures.

· Strong family structures produce children who are more centered, academically proficient and socially developed and are a valuable asset to their communities.

· Better parents produce better communities, better schools and better students.

· Fathers, grandfathers, foster fathers, step-fathers, uncles, cousins, big brothers, significant male caregivers and friends of the family can participate in The Million Father March.

· While this event is sponsored by Black men, women and men of all races and faith backgrounds are encouraged to take children to school on their first day of school.

· 200 cities are expected to participate in the Million Father March.

· 2007 is the forth year for the Million Father March.
