Resilient Fathers: Thriving in the Midst of a Pandemic: Being an Emotionally Responsive Dad: Good for your Kids, Good for You!
Speaker: Jon Novello, MSU Employee Assistance Program
Dad’s make a difference in the lives of their kids. We know this is absolutely true, dads can contribute to providing the necessary structure and stability that kids need. We also now know that when men are emotionally tuned in to their kids, children thrive! And you know what else? Being an emotionally responsive father is really, really good for the health of the dad, too! Unfortunately, so many men have been discouraged from experiencing a full range of emotions, and as a result they may feel uncomfortable being emotionally open. Join Jon Novello, counselor at MSU’s Employee Assistance Program, as he shares the ways that dads are so critical to the development of their children, and outlines what it really means to be an emotionally responsive dad.
