After my post yesterday about creating positive images of Aboriginal fathers, I was flicking channels on TV last night and saw the following ad. It was so refreshing!
The video, produced by the Fatherhood Foundation, wasn’t specifically about Aboriginal dads (although I’m sure some of the featured dads were), but showed a variety of dads and their children. While I doubt I would agree with all the Foundation’s work (they seem to have a conservative view of the ideal family consisting of a married man and woman) this is a great initiative and I think they have created a powerful ad. I wish we were exposed to more images of fathers like these.
