I received an awesome news story via alert yesterday. Topic? Dads in Scotland doing playgroups! What an awesome show of support for the well-being of children and dads both.
Aileen Campbell starts the article by saying: “YESTERDAY, in my role as Scotland’s Children’s Minister, I had the pleasure of opening a new playgroup in Edinburgh. This though, is a playgroup with a slight difference. A playgroup primarily for dads and their wee ones.”
She goes on later to say: “It’s heartening to see the formation and growth of groups like this, given the huge importance of fathers in the lives of Scotland’s children.”
It’s good to see stories of engaged fathers. All too often you see quite the opposite.
Let’s hear it for these awesome dads and Aileen for her initiative!
What do you think?
