This week’s for the Dads Doing It Right series I wanted to put the spotlight on dads who are looking to instill great values into their kids. From sharing on all aspects about parenting these dads are looking to pass on their knowledge to others. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their site in the comment section below.

Clinton Kelly – Fatherhood Farms
Clinton created Fatherhood Farms as a healing place where men can come with their families to seek out their inner most struggles so that they may strengthen those bonds. Kelly feels that we have to identify past traumas and explore them openly to start to move towards a solution. He believes that men need to loosen (not let go) our desperate grip on the archaic ideals past generations.
Things that instilled in us revolving around masculinity and start to incorporate a state of vulnerability. It’s not “tough” or “brave” to be afraid of ones own feelings so much that you aren’t willing to communicate them at all and let them manifest outwardly in a negative way. That’s inconsiderate at best. Having the wherewithal to seek healing so that you can be a better father, partner, role model is not only extremely admirable but some REAL man s#*t. Clinton feels that vulnerability does not compromise masculinity. Read his thoughts at his website, fatherhoodfarms.com.
