Families First for Mississippi | Donuts with Dad

Canton, MS, (6/1/18) –  With Father’s Day approaching Families First wanted to do something to thank Dad’s for the vital role they play in influencing their child’s life. Breakfast has been deemed the most important meal of the day so what could be better than bringing your child by the Families First Resource Center and grabbing a donut and visiting with other dads.

On Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 from 8:00-9:30am The Families First Resource Center in Canton is hosting “Donuts with Dad.” Come by and grab a free donut and coffee and converse with other fathers. Families First wants to thank the Fathers for the role they have played and will continue to play in their child’s life.

Your child’s primary relationship with his/her father can affect all of your child’s relationships from birth to death, including those with friends, lovers, and spouses. Those early patterns of interaction with father are the very patterns that will be projected forward into all relationships. Not only your child’s intrinsic idea of who he/she is as he/she relates to others, but also, the range of what your child considers acceptable and loving. Girls try to find men like their fathers to date and marry while boys try to become the man their fathers are.
