First Things First

Summer is all about family and spending quality time with the ones you love. And the more skills you develop, the more time you invest in your family and your relationships.  First Things First (FTF) is an award winning, not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
FTF is a resource that collaborates with and is supported by a broad cross-section of community organizations, groups and individuals.  FTF accomplishes it mission through meaningful media messaging and skill building classes.
Did you know:
• 24 million children are growing up in homes without their biological fathers.
• Only 30% of divorces are due to infidelity, addiction or abuse, 70% of divorces are due to couples feeling disconnected.
• Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another.
• Fathers provide unique benefits to their daughters through their active and positive presence from the time of birth all the way through adulthood.
You can see all of First Things First's e-learning videos here. They cover relationships, marriage and parenting.  Not only are they funny, they are educational! I think these videos are great resources for any family. 
I've watched them all, and this is my favorite FTF video.  Check it out! It's called Dad's Way....
I am the first to admit to being a helicopter mama.  But I realize it is important for kids to have the chance to get a little wild with Dad sometimes.  I need to let that happen more!

  1. I LOVE Dad's Way!! The different things they show are so true!! Drawing on the windows...using the vacuum to fix her hair (I actually tried that one lol) ingenious!!!

    1. Just goes to show how different moms and dads think, sometimes! :) I loved the vacuum one too!

  2. I liked the Dad's Day video. Very cute and so true! They need their own time with kids to do only what dads do!

  3. I like the Dad video b/c it brings back fond memories of my father
