ABOUT THE FATHERING PROJECT
The Fathering Project started when Professor Bruce Robinson, a respiratory physician, analysed the regrets that patients often expressed when they did not have long to live. He found that they stated unanimously:
• I did not spend enough time with my kids
• I spent too much time at work
• I wish someone could have helped me back then
Bruce used this feedback as the drive to begin researching fatherhood, spending hours interviewing men and kids. This resulted in a deep understanding of fatherhood which resulted in a number of book publications and the creation of The Fathering Project
Bruce’s research showed that the most powerful missing force in preventing problems that adolescents have today is a strong father figure. His research discovered the significant impact that an effective father figure can have on an entire life.
