Germantown, MD (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) has launched a brand new series of eBooks to help dads build their parenting, fathering, and relationship skills.
“The 24/7 Dad® To Go eBook Series” is the first of its kind – short, simple, affordable, and practical eBooks tackling specific issues of interest to today’s dads. Each eBook will be based upon the principles of NFI’s leading fatherhood program, 24/7 Dad®. 24/7 Dad® is the most widely used fatherhood program among community-based organizations in the U.S. Its premise is that fatherhood is a skill-based activity that dads can get better at with the right mix of knowledge and inspiration.
The first book in the series, "Tips for Raising Healthy Kids", will help fathers understand the link between their own health and their children’s health. For dads, raising healthy children starts with being healthy themselves, and then passing on the habits, knowledge, and lifestyle that will help children thrive.
Recent research confirms the strong link between father and child health. For example, children in father-absent homes are twice as likely to be obese than children in two-parent homes. Furthermore, a father’s involvement and parenting style is predictive of his children’s BMI, whereas a mother’s is not.
The content of "Tips for Raising Healthy Kids" has been compiled and enhanced from the proven fatherhood skill-building resources that have been field-tested by NFI for over a decade. Each eBook in the series will use the same approach to get reliable, practical information into the hands of dads.
Each eBook will be sold for $1.99 at NFI’s online resource center, FatherSOURCE, at http://www.fathersource.org. One new eBook will be released each month, covering topics such as marriage and relationships, child development, and specific fathering skills, such as discipline.
As the premier fatherhood renewal organization in the country, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), founded in 1994, works in every sector and at every level of society to engage fathers in the lives of their children. NFI is the #1 provider of fatherhood resources in the nation.

NFI is also the most quoted authority on fatherhood in America. Since 2009, NFI has been mentioned in over 3,500 news stories, and makes regular appearances in national media to discuss the importance of involved, responsible, and committed fatherhood.
