Fathering Together Boulder, Monthly Meeting
Time & Location
About the Event
The Fathering Together Boulder chapter is a group of dads who believe that raising children is easier and more enjoyable with community.
The group gathers for monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month and seasonal activities that are open to the whole family. The goal is to strengthen relationships with other fathers in order to support strong relationships within our families.
Meetings take place outside, weather permitting.
The evening meetings offers an open dialogue in a relaxed atmosphere in order to discuss topics specific to fatherhood. Topics might include creating a vision for the relationships we want with our children, understanding child development and milestones, and working through tantrums or other behavior issues.
While the monthly groups are only open to fathers, there will also be seasonal activities for children and partners to join. In the past we have offered trips to the farm to visit the animals, crawdad catching lessons at the creek, children’s storytelling events, and potluck dinners.
Taking parenting seriously doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. In fact that is the priority. We hope to gather together in a light-hearted way in order to create the space and trust to speak about topics that aren’t always brought up amongst our friends and family.
Who is a “father?”
The definition of “father” and “dad” continue to develop and broaden. The Boulder Fathering Together chapter is open to all adult male primary or significant caregivers, including, birth fathers, stepfathers, partners, grandfathers, adult mentors, etc.
