Collecting Success Stories From Dads
Experienced fathers and writers Hogan Hilling and Al Watts are excited to announce a new book and website project titled, Dads Behaving Dadly: Chronicling the Fatherhood Revolution - dadsbehavingdadly.com, The two are working together to gather a range of success stories detailing the real lives of involved fathers in the United States and Canada.
Hilling and Watts hope the project will rebrand the image of fatherhood by highlighting all that is good about dads; provide good role models for fathers; help the public recognize and appreciate fatherhood; acknowledge the benefits of a dad’s presence in a child’s life and community; and validate a father’s contribution to parenting.
This will be the fifth parenting book by Hilling. Watts, who is president of The National At-Home Dad Network, www.daddyshome.org, will be co-author. Their website, dadsbehavingdadly.com, is already live.
