We purchased it because 1) it could be broken into shorter 1-hour individual sessions 2) it is based on the acclaimed "7 Habits..." work from Dr. Steven Covey and 3) it could also be used as a workshop. We used it for the first time on July 22nd as a workshop and we had about 9 fathers attend. It was awesome! The information is very well organized [and] accessible to diverse audiences. The activities, use of different materials, and videos vary the learning styles. The feedback from all of my dads was great. I had older dads who intimated that they learned a lot as well as younger fathers raving about how good it was. Even our facilitators were excited about it.

I've been a volunteer co-facilitator of fathering courses at a social service agency for the past four years, and a school district administrator familiar with curriculum for nearly forty years, prior. Our most recent course utilized the "The 7 Habits of the 24/7 Dad" and it worked beautifully. It is a well-researched, well-organized curriculum with clear objectives and the means to achieve them. Trying to do justice to the complexities of fatherhood is daunting, but the relative brevity of our program helped boost attendance and commitment and the 24/7 guide served as a blueprint for success.

Using the 7 Habits of a 24/7 Dad Guidebook, allows the facilitator, after assessing the participating fathers' hurdles, to apply Being Proactive and Put First Things First in scenarios and reflections of personal experience that fathers may be able to directly relate. Using diagrams and videos to get and keep fathers involved using The 7 Habits.

We found that using information and the framework presented in the guidebook fell perfectly in line with the message we were trying to get across to our clients. Integrating our material with the 7 Habits enhanced the combined material in a synergistic manner. It makes our sessions more clever, memorable and fun for us
and our clients.

I started working with father's in 2002 working as the Program Facilitator for father's at ASCA Akron,Ohio. In 2006 I started the Man2Man Program with Pastor Drone. I am a firm believer in NFI Training Manuals. I am basically one of their disciples. I am certified in all of their books, but The 7 Habits of a 24/7 Dad best fits my program and covers all the basic needs of our fathers from anger to forgiveness, and gives us the option to have six weeks of 2 hrs classes. We also have great feedback from the sections on being pro-active vs. reactive, and behavior & the circle of control.
