From the White House; “On Father’s Day weekend, President Obama reflects on his experience as a parent and discusses the challenges and necessity of being a good father.” It looks like Big Government has worked it’s way into fatherhood with a new government program from the Obama administration called, Fatherhood.gov. With this program you can learn to responsible father. According to the site,
President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. That’s why the President is joining dads from across the nation in a fatherhood pledge â€“ a pledge that we’ll do everything we can to be there for our children and for young people whose fathers are not around. When you take the President’s Fatherhood Pledge, you’ll receive updates, tips and resources from fatherhood organizations, prominent dads and other supporters of responsible fatherhood around the nation.
You actually don’t take a pledge, but you instead sign up with the government to be a responsible dad. You give the government your address, phone number and email and that is what constitutes taking the pledge. They will then send you the appropriate information to make you a good dad.
