A secret to better your child's educational performance


THE demands of the workplace can sometimes make us forget some truisms about fatherhood and parenting. So let's reflect on a few of them:

  • WHAT would it be like if a child felt fathered always?
  • What if our children felt loved, cherished, forgiven, encouraged and accepted?
  • Would the world be a better place for them?
  • What would it be like if a child felt supported in their educational journey?
  • Would the world be a more interesting place for curious discoveries?


A key secret: Just being there for them

Fathers who are involved in our children’s education will spur them on to perform better in school. When daddies are interested in their school life’s development our children will also share with us openly about their experiences. This opens a door to a deeper and closer relationship with our children.


Reflection pointers

  • We are always concerned about our children’s education and want them to do well in their studies.
  • What can you do as a father to help them do well?


Action pointers

  • Make it a point to send your child to school on the first day of the school year.
  • Be involved in the administrative and logistic preparations for your child.
What's happening at CFF

The CFF is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. It is grateful for your support in its movement and is looking to expand its reach to meet more people that believe in getting fathers more involved in their children’s life.

The CFF has evolved over the years and has found the obvious truth that the majority of fathers are at their workplaces. It is calling its readers to highlight its services, target its website to fathers/parents or forward this story to them. It will be more than willing to make a trip to the company to present its services if needed.
