The Workshop will focus on activities that can assist both Father and Son improve their relationship. Effective communication, empathy, and memory building are essential foundations every relationship needs to grow. Fathers and Sons share a special bond that needs nurturing if both parties enjoy the best of their relationship.
For Sons, building healthy self-esteem is crucial in their formative years. For Fathers, understanding how to care for a young male child can be overwhelming due to the generational gap. Some fathers find it difficult to express love loudly. A father’s love is invisible but real and essential. There is nothing more substantial like the father-son relationship. Many factors will influence Sons as they travel through their life journey.
Fathers are important role models. We will discuss the essential things sons need from their fathers. Both father and son must have a good understanding of their vastly different realities. A knowledge of that understanding will empower them with the skills they need to bond better. It is also important to note that, like everything else, building a lasting relationship is always a work in progress.
While one Workshop experience might not drastically change the current situation, it is a step both parties can take to start building a healthy relationship.
The Father and Son Workshop covers topics in three phases:
Phase One – Explores personal storytelling and self-esteem development.
Phase Two – We look at the foundational soft skills that can help a relationship bloom.
Phase Three – A series of practical activities Fathers and their Sons can use to learn about each other.
