How dads shape us–for better or worse
How Dads Shape Us Discussed at Lifetree Café
The impact of fathers on children will be examined at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled “A Father’s Power: How Dads Shape Us–for Better or Worse,” includes a filmed interview with former gang member and current father Mark DeEzparza.
“I can’t recall a time I was really engaged or active with my father,” says DeEsparza. “I watched other children spending time with their fathers, fishing or going to games and being engaged. I looked for that growing up and couldn’t find it.”
Working without a model, DeEsparza is attempting to be the sort of father he didn’t have.
Participants will explore the impact fathers have made on their own lives and how they may be impacting the next generation.
Admission to the 60-minute Lifetree event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.
When: 6:30 pm on June 17
Where: Cafe at New Beginnings
