The fatherhood group is wonderful. It gets guys to talk about their feelings, emotions and keep out negative energy as much as possible and make sure we can being a positive outcome to the family.

The class is a support system for fathers in similar situations. I would recommend this class to any father dealing with the Juvenile and Domestic Relation Court.

I always ask those I referred to the program what they got out of it. To this date, I have never received a negative response from the participants, regardless of age. There has been a major improvement in the relationship area.

Dear Phil,

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous presentation!  I KNOW you got the students thinking; your perspective opened their eyes, I’m sure, in ways that I could not!  I’m passionate about fatherhood – I was raised by my own father, along with my 3 younger brothers!  

With much appreciation,

I recently visited Mr. Phillip White’s Parenting Class & I was very impressed & inspired by Mr. White & the curriculum of the classes.  I listened to the Men that attended & I could understand their situations, frustrations, problems & efforts to resolve the problems that they encounter.

I came to understand from the fatherhood program that I must be the model of what a man should be to my children. I must have an open mind to better communicate my feelings.

There are great speakers that come to the program. It is a very comfortable environment.  Guys that have been in the program before come back to offer their support to new dads in the group.
