Perspective…

The Men’s global fraternity has progressed rather quickly over the last 10 to 20 years… for example the Men’s shed movement has evolved from one shed beginning in Victoria Australia to an exceptional interconnected world wide network. It is not surprising then, in terms of a broader perspective, that a huge number of other men’s groups have spawned dramatically that its now influencing the “average family man” to cater for the changing “face” of even the family nucleus, which in turn has evolved to accommodate the new gender paradigms. It seems like the World is getting “smaller”… not in size but basically via interconnection. Below are some examples of how men are connecting more with each other locally as well as internationally – shown by the very fact that these links are the very example of how to “connect” with other men in other countries.

Caring Dad’s:

Caring Dads is now a growing global organisation that exists to work within current practices to encourage men to be better fathers and husbands (partners), especially for the sake of the children within the respective relationships.
Since 2001 the Caring Dad’s intervention program has gained enormous inroads into the lives of families for the better, due in part with a direct focus on the Fathers, with a particular understanding that “unquestionable connections are evident between violence against women, and the children, whether victims or witnesses”.

Global estimates published by the WHO indicate that one in three (35%) of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence in their lifetime.
US Department of Justice stats indicates that 1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence annually… a sad scenario.
For Canada there are over 100,000 substantiated child maltreatment investigation annually with some outcomes culminating into homicide for either children or a parent.
In India, it is believed that over 50% of women experience violence in their own homes. These short examples appear consistant globally.

Underlying factors in support of the above indicate contributing ongoing issues such as, family social factors, masculinity versus femininity, overt relations, societal structures… with all this in mind, research from several decades past indicates the patterns that have been set which is the actual focus… for change.
When fathers are positively involved in their families the children as well as the partners benefit exponentially with everyone seeing a positive outcome in family life. You can read further on the Articles page or follow the Caring Dad’s website link in the list below.
