24/7 Dad® is an evidence-based fatherhood program used to improve the knowledge, behavior, and skills of dads and father figures. The program is built on the basis that fathers can be nurturers, and for men, nurturing is a learned skill. Throughout the program, men examine their own fatherhood history and learn important behaviors to help them be the best dads they can be.
24/7 Mom is an adapted curriculum to serve our mothers. The curriculum helps mothers reflect on how the way they were raised affects how they relate to their children, the father of their children and others. Mothers learn communication skills to help them more effectively interact with their children and co-parent.
24/7 Couples is an adapted curriculum to serve our couples to improve knowledge, behavior of skills of mothers, fathers and father figures. The curriculum helps parenting couples reflect on how the way they were raised affects how they relate to their children and each other.
