Transcript: 'The Road had many examples of fatherhood and what it takes to be a good father. The dad cared about his son more than anything in the world, including himself. Real Life Example Fatherhood In 'The Road', the father is given a terribly difficult choice when him and his son are almost discovered hiding in the house of the 'bad guys' . He has to decide whether to let them find him and his son, or just find him. In the intro to 'The Road', the father is speaking of how him and his son are surviving and in the end of the clip he says how much his son means to him. By Zach Luther In Conclusion... The two books I read were "The Road" and "One Second After". They were both about a father and his family in a 'post-apocalyptic' world. They both showed how much a father cares about their children and the sacrifices they make. There were many cases over the internet of dads saving lives of children. One tragic example is when a man and his 3 daughters were play soccer on a shoreline and they kicked the ball into the water. The ball quickly drifted away as the family was having trouble getting it. Him and his 3 daughters started to struggle against the current, and the man had as choice. He used all of his energy saving his daughters but it ended up costing his life. What a father will do to protect their children. This relates to 'The Road' because the man and his son are in constant danger of starvation or freezing to death in the cold winter. The dad is always risking his life, whether it's confronting strangers or giving up his food and warmth for his son.

What are some events Project Fatherhood does in communities? Project Fatherhood Project Fatherhood was developed to give urban, culturally diverse fathers an opportunity to connect with their children and play a meaningful role in their lives. The program continues to be recognized nationally for effectively addressing the problem of absentee fathers, a major social issue affecting the healthy development of a significant number of children. Target Population Over his career, Dr. Hershel Swinger had long observed that fathers were most often left out of programs designed to strengthen troubled low-income urban families and prevent child abuse and neglect. But he firmly believed that fathers wanted what was best for their kids. To that end, he devised Project Fatherhood SM to give fathers the tools to participate actively in the rearing and well-being of their children. In 2010, KPI was awarded a grant of $300,000 over a period of three years from Children's Institute, Inc. in order to continue to carry out the mission of Project Fatherhood at the Jordan Downs Public Housing Development.
