National Fatherhood Summit

Here’s an event happing in Grand Rapids, MI, on Friday: The National Fatherhood Summit

This is the first event leading up to the 2nd Annual Family Preservation Festival which is to take place on August 15th-17th 2008 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Fatherhood Summit will bring together husbands, wives, mothers, fathers and grandparents in an effort to begin the New Year recognizing the need for repair of fatherhood nationwide.

The event is getting a lot of media coverage. Just go to DaddyBlogger and scroll.

I also got an email from Robert Peterson, one of the speakers at the Summit and one of the bikers who trekked to DC in support of equal parenting and who is going to do it again (???) this year. He tells me that a lot of military dads are going to be at the Fatherhood Summit.

See the site for more details.


  1. This reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer helps Bart build a soap box racer. At the beginning of the episode, Homer is discovered to be such a bad father that two men in white coats from the ‘National Fatherhood Institute’ take him away. I wonder if that’s where they got the idea? 🙂
