How 900 Kentucky dads are reconnecting with their kids

As Father’s Day approached, a group of dads got together in Louisville’s Shawnee Park to play kickball and catch up. The men are part of a Kentucky-based program that teaches them how to better communicate with and care for their kids. James Bush Jr., 42, is an alumnus of the 4 Your Child program, which launched about four years ago and is led by University of Louisville professor Armon Perry. Bush brought a couple of his kids, including his 21-year-old son Tavion Mitchell, to the park. Perry, an associate professor at U of L’s Kent School of Social Work, said the 4 Your Child project is meant to help fathers who want to take a more active role in their children’s lives increase their personal capacity to do that.
