What it means to be a good father


A father can be the provider, protector, caregiver, nurturer and the disciplinarian. He can be actively involved in the lives of his kids or not around at all. So what makes a GOOD Father? Some of us were fortunate enough to learn that from our own fathers, other’s weren’t so lucky. Joining us to look at the changing role of fathers, and programs to teach young men how to be good fathers, is Dr. Lief Noll with Family Success Consortium, Director of the Fatherhood Project with Talbert House, Harold Howard, and Dr. Gary Dick, professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Cincinnati.
