I hope you guys are well.
Today was a special day at my daughter’s school. It was their annual “Dads Take Your Child To School Day” (A project of the NYS Office of Children and Family Services and NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance). It’s special in my household because I’m normally the one that takes my daughter to school while my husband goes to work early, but today Olivia got to walk hand in hand with her daddy all the way to school. Just them, and the smile on her face as I waved goodbye from my window was priceless. It’s very important for children to have a male figure they can count on in their lives. The flier that was sent home with my child inviting dads to this event also stated that “If dads are unavailable to attend the event, invite grandfathers, foster fathers, step-fathers, uncles, cousins, big brothers, significant male caregivers or male friends of the family.”
I applaud this project and their efforts to promote awareness that everyone in the family plays a very important part in a child’s life. My husband absolutely loved taking part in this event because he’s a devoted father and he’s always curious to see how things run, especially his child’s school. He was able to see Olivia in her class first hand and she was able to introduce him to her classmates. It was a win, win situation that’s worth it in the long run.
Start building a great relationship with your child and their school today.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
