Today on the Dads With Daughters Podcast we have Matt Prestbury, a special education teacher from Baltimore that started an amazing Facebook Group called Black Fathers.
Matt Prestbury shared that after he divorced from his first wife he began to look toward other fathers to help form a bond and a collective among men in my same situation. He began to invite fathers and their children out to social gatherings, and fathers by themselves to meet ups to discuss fatherhood. When he got on Facebook he had the opportunity to take what he was doing in the physical world and work to replicate it online. He wanted fathers to come together across the globe in order to form the same kinds of bonds, and to form a collective of fathers, as well as to create a space where we could smash stereotypes and misconceptions by telling the truth about who we are as men and fathers.
Matt Prestbury shared his experiences with his group but also, more importantly, he shared how much of his life changed when he had his daughter. After being a father to three sons as he mentioned he did not think he would ever have a daughter, until he did and then his life was completely changed.
