I don’t want to be a “good enough” father!

“I don’t want to be a ‘good enough’ father…”
It’s one of my favorite lines from the movie Courageous.

“I don’t want to be a ‘good enough’ father…”As a dad, I think I speak for most fathers in that we desire to be the best dads we can be. But how do we really know how we’re doing? If we’re honest, are we really striving to be everything our children and families need? Or, do we see ourselves as “good enough” fathers?

I only have to go as far as my own neighborhood to know that dads desire help; they often just don’t know what step to take first.

Well, I am pleased to say that we have a great answer. Over the past year, we have been communicating our progress on a new fathering assessment tool, the Championship Fathering Profile—a “research-based” tool that any dad can utilize to determine how he is doing as a father. And we are making it available to dads for FREE.

Maybe one of the greatest attributes of this tool is that once you take the assessment and receive the results, you’ll receive some next steps to help you strengthen your role as a dad. It sounds easy, and it is.

Here is what you do:

Send all dads to our website at www.fathers.com/profile. The entire process will take about 20 minutes … maybe the most important 20 minutes a dad will ever invest … 20 minutes that could change the outlook of fathering forever.

We have big plans for this assessment. While offering it online, our next task is to create a mobile APP and to do whatever it takes to get this valuable resource into the hands of every father. As I stated, this tool can be a great first step to help men improve their fathering.

Are you inspired? I am.

And I know you want me to shoot you straight. Truth is, I need your help.

Over the past year, we’ve seen a drop in support from individuals. We’ve been able to develop this online resource in its present state, but your financial help is needed to take it to the next level, as well as maintaining and even growing our programming in other areas. As a donor-supported organization, we won’t be able to sustain our efforts without some assistance. That’s where I need your help.

Will you consider a December gift to help ensure that we are able to keep the momentum going?

The Championship Fathering Profile is just one weapon in our fight to change the culture of fathering in America. We are working to create a movement that involves thousands if not millions of dads.

And you are a part of this movement! In some way, as a WATCH D.O.G.S. volunteer, a Today’s Father radio listener, a conference attendee, an email reader or a follower on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve plugged in to our Championship Fathering movement. And you are a valuable member of the team!

We can’t risk cutting back at a time when there is so much more we can and must do to spread the Championship Fathering message! Will you jump at this chance to be generous?

Your support is crucial to keep us on track. We are making a difference and we’ll continue to be part of changing the culture, but we need your help! Please partner with us in this fight!
