Max Dupree, the author of Leadership is an Art said, โ€œThe first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.โ€

So, to highlight the significance of a father's role, here is a quotation.

Since the 2000s, technology use has grown significantly, posing new challenges for families and parents.

And while we work to limit our kids' screen time, we should also assess our own behaviour to see if we are setting an example for them.

Here is a statistic to ponder.

Although technology has many advantages, such as the ability to capture precious moments in photos and videos, parents should guard the opportunities to bond as a family.

Consider this quote for reflection.

Back to School with Dad is an initiative organised by the Centre for Fathering, DADs for Life and MUMs for Life, in partnership with Families for Life and in support of Made for Families and Celebrating SG Families, which aims to encourage fathers to accompany their children to school on the first two days of a new school year, so as to reassure their children of their interest and involvement in their academic journey.

Back to School with Dad cards have also been designed for fathers and mothers to write a note of affirmation and encouragement, which they can send to their childrenโ€™s mobile phone or place the printed cards in their lunchboxes or school bags, so that their children can be pleasantly surprised during recess.
