The premise of being father-inclusive is rooted in the belief that fathers are significant to the development and well being of children and youth.  It is modeled on family-sensitive and father-inclusive principles developed through the Father Inclusive Practice Forum. Father inclusion recognizes a need to provide “time-in” with their children that focuses on the specific father-child dyad.

 

Research states that fathers who take care of their children at an early age are more likely to take care of their children at a later age.

 

Men are more active with their sons, and children (both boys and girls), look to their fathers for play-related time together.

 

Whether there has been a separation, a reunification, or a new relationship, Aspire Youth Services Inc.  will work hard to build the attachment through specialized father-child play therapy.
