Welcome To Our Loving Home!
The productivity of fathers in the
lives of their children is needed. Fathers’ presence alone can provide children with a sense of safety,
support and positive imaging of male role models; keeping them from relying on actors, athletes and entertainers.
Many fathers try to portray images of those noted instead of expressing positive images of their own fathers.
Regardless of how negatively perceived their fathers are, many later find that there were/are positive attributes they
would like to adopt from their fathers. With a less dominant role in the family, many fathers’ attitudes toward their
children have become distant, and/or negative. For some fathers, children are seen at worst a burden and
for others at best a challenge. Daddy’s Right Here, Inc. makes a beeline to suppressed emotions and taps into many of these fathers’
unresolved issues, which makes way for their healing process to begin, all through a Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
approach. A literature review and needs assessment were conducted in the winter of 2004-2005 by Sabir Alim,
Founder and President of Daddy’s Right Here, Inc. The literature attributed the problem to a
multitude of issues such as, incarceration, a lack of parenting skills, chemical dependency and divorce, to name a few.
The needs assessment study consisting of a survey of the target population and key informants paralleled the findings
in the literature. It was also discovered that few of the key informants even addressed parenting with
their consumers, nor did many of the consumers discuss such issues beyond blaming the mother for their own absence.
