Dr Bruce Robinson... He’s the godfather of the Dad help space. He’s a cancer specialist but has also started a fantastic initiative called
The Fathering Project.. He’s written best-selling books like Daughters and their Dads, Fathering from the Fast Lane. He wants to educate fathers on how to be better dad’s and he’s been doing it for years now. He’s a legend when it comes to Dad stuff.
In this chat Bruce talks to Alex about his experience of Being Dad and how he came to start The Fathering Project.
“Our core mission is to inspire and equip fathers and father-figures to be effectively involved with the kids in their lives, and consequently improve outcomes for young people.”
“We seek to encourage and support Dads to be the best they can be.”
