The Duchess Kate Middleton Wears Michael Kors @ International Men’s Day Virtual Call November 23, 2020.
Duke and Duchess chatting with participants in a program run by Future Men, an organization that “supports boys and men along the path to becoming dynamic future men.”
More from The Mirror’s story:
Future Men provides a range of courses that help with different aspects of fatherhood, from enhancing father-child relationships to teaching practical and emotional approaches to enable dads to take care of themselves, their partner and baby.
The men described their experiences of fatherhood from dealing with their child’s sleeping patterns to being a positive role model when Kate asked them about the challenges of family life especially during lockdown.
The Future Men site notes, “We support boys and men from childhood to 25+ to help them become dynamic and healthy future men. Through our practice-led services, we encourage boys and men to explore, celebrate and build on the seven characteristics that we believe contribute to positive masculinity.
Back to The Mirror’s piece:
The Duchess said: “Being able to maintain and form relationships throughout life is such a vital skill.
“Dads play such an important role it shouldn’t be a bad thing to reach out for help and advice. So it’s great that services like this are out there.”
When William asked the dads, if being a father was valued by their communities and wider society, and Darren Smith, married with a son called Messiah, said: “I have a strong belief that, especially for me being a younger dad, I think that I have a strong impact on you know, the community, the society around me…
“We’re superheroes to these kids, we’re their role models. You know, they look at us as ‘Ok, I want to be like, daddy’. My son tells me everyday ‘daddy, I want to be like you’.”
From The Telegraph’s story:
“Because I worry an awful lot, a lot of dads out there who just don’t know what to do, and they don’t know where to go. And they may not have such good – either grounding, foundations or support around them to be able to know what to do.”
