Fathering in 15

By: Sarah Meikle/

Lenawee Great Start is excited to announce that we are now offering a FREE parenting program just for dads, called “Fathering in 15”.  We chose this program because it is evidence-based and the ease of access allows dads to complete it around their busy schedules.

“Fathering in 15” contains 15 topics. Dads can complete each topic in only 15 minutes. Each topic has a similar layout, along with text, videos, graphics, and interactive content to engage dads. Dads can complete each of the 15 topics in order, or they can skip around to the topics that matter the most to them at the time. Once they have completed all 15 topics, they will receive a certificate of completion.


A feature that adds to the flexibility of this resource is the ability to print a hard copy of the content in each topic. If a dad wants a hard copy of a topic to refer back to after he completes that topic, he only needs to click on the “Download Printable Version” link at the beginning of each topic to download and print a PDF of the topic formatted for printing.


The topics include:

  • Family History
  • Being a Man and a Dad
  • Handling Emotions
  • Grief and Loss
  • Your Health
  • You and Mom
  • Talking with Mom
  • Co-Parenting
  • Fathering Skills
  • Child Development
  • Child Discipline
  • Sexuality
  • Intimacy
  • Work Family Balance
  • Managing Money


The online course can be accessed at lenaweegreatstart.org on the home page under ‘Important Resources.’ Or you can email Sarah at sarah.meikle@lenaweegreatstart.org to receive a direct link.
