Our mission at ExtraordinaryFathers.com is to “Help fathers make a positive impact on the lives of their children”. Simple but not easy!
Most of us are not handed a “How to be a Good Father” handbook when we have a child born. But rather, we either rely on what we saw or experienced growing up and quite frankly, that could have been a good or bad experience. With ExtraordinaryFathers.com we want to offer all fathers (and mothers too) a place to visit where you can regularly access a set of proven parenting resources that either supplements the “good father” experience you had growing up, or likewise, if your experience wasn’t so positive, provide you with useful tools, information and on-going support that helps you become the extraordinary father you want to be!
How we support this mission will involve numerous approaches and challenges, both large and small, but at the end of the day if we want our sons and daughters to thrive and have a better life we as fathers must dare them to be extraordinary. We dare them to be extraordinary by being engaged in their lives, by instilling in them the values of respect, honesty and integrity, by demonstrating to them an exemplary work ethic, by embracing the importance of faith in all that we do and finally by committing to an uncompromising level of excellence in our daily lives.
Our promise at ExtraordinaryFathers.com is to offer a platform that positively promotes the role and importance of men, particularly African American men, as fathers in our society through the following ways:
- Recognize and uplift men who are engaged and loving in their role as fathers.
- Educate and reinforce for men the important role and positive impact they can have as fathers.
- Inspire men to take a leadership role in raising their sons and daughters to live out extraordinary lives.
- Offer compelling testimony that men have the capacity and demonstrated history to raise and influence their sons and daughters to become extraordinarily positive people within their community and beyond.
- Begin a new positive conversation about men and their role and influence in raising their sons and daughters.
Hear, my child, and accept my words, that the years of your life may be many. I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered; and if you run, you will not stumble. Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.
