Daddy's Home in Parent University is just for fathers.

New Parent University course is just for Dads

After listening to North Omaha fathers, the Learning Community created a new Parent University course called “Daddy’s Home”.

When the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties conducted parent focus groups recently, they discovered fathers shared a common need. Later this month, the Learning Community launches “Daddy’s Home,” a six-week Parent University course with training and discussion just for fathers.

Anthony Douglas signed up for “Daddy’s Home” right away. He’s completed more than 30 Parent University courses in the Learning Community Center of North Omaha. He thinks a class focused on fathers is a much-needed opportunity. “It’s important for fathers to share experiences and understand our common struggles.” The weekly fatherhood class filled quickly. Douglas hopes it will be a place “to lift each other up.”

Research shows young children gain tremendous benefit from a loving and involved father.

Benefits of Involved Fathers

The Parent University team includes our educational navigators who support families enrolled in classes. The Daddy’s Home class is a direct result of staff focus groups to listen to our parents.

  • Increases a child’s confidence
  • Supports student success
  • Increases problem-solving skills

“Many fathers want to make a positive impact in their child’s life, but struggle to find their place.”

Jamalia Parker, Learning Community Director of Family Engagement Services, says “Daddy’s Home” gives fathers the opportunity to learn from each other and make fatherhood a little easier.
