A FATHER’S JOURNEY WITH FLAVOR MANG’ULA
UNLEASH THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR FATHERHOOD AND FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR CHILDREN
Fatherhood, this is one of the most underrated and misconstrued spaces today.
The fact that you can procreate doesn’t mean that you are a true father. Even animals can be fathers; but what distinguishes us from them? That’s the basis of this course.
My name is Flavor Mang’ula I am first and foremost a Father and dedicated Dad to two amazing teenagers.
Being a single parent I have dealt with various dynamics and tough situations. Through this course I have chosen to share some truths that I have learnt along this journey called Fatherhood.
And so join me as we unravel some of the truths that we need to harness as Fathers, truths that will totally change our perspective of Fatherhood and set us up as the great icons that God intended.
If we are to raise a generation of world class, well equipped, influential citizens, we have to be deliberate and intentional in our Fatherhood.
So come on and step up to the plate! Let’s share knowledge, attitudes and skills with one another, and truly give our children the absolute best of us!
Let’s purpose to enjoy Fatherhood!
A FATHER’S FOUNDATION
The best place to start is always the beginning. In this first module Flavor goes back to the early years. How were we parented? Did this have a critical effect on how we parent today? How do we currently parent? And do we have a vision for our parenting? This module will help you assess what values you learnt about parenting from your families of origin and help you define a vision moving forward.
A FATHER’S ROLE
The role of a Father is critical to unlocking a child’s full potential. In this module we look at how we can best develop ourselves within the 5 P’s of Fatherhood – Provider, Protector, Promoter, Priest and Prophet.
A FATHER’S IMPACT
We’ve heard the saying, it takes a village to raise a child. In this module we explore how as Father’s we need to make deliberate choices about the environment we create for raising our children. From extended family to difficult conversations – all must be done with impact in mind.
A FATHER’S LOVE
We often make the mistake of loving someone how we want to be loved – rather than loving them how they want to be loved. In this module we explore our children’s love languages and how we can leverage on them to form a lasting bond.
A FATHER’S STRUGGLES
The journey of Fatherhood comes with unique spaces and stages. We explore the various spaces that Father’s struggle – from joblessness, pregnancy, peer pressure to in-laws – and how to use the struggles to propel us forward.
A FATHER DISCIPLINES
There are different forms of discipline that can be used based on a child’s development. This module explores the role of discipline and how it helps in defining the way the children turn out.
A FATHER’S SUCCESS
Without a clear plan, your desire to parent effectively will not succeed! In this module, you begin to develop a manual from lessons so far. This module will also show you how to understand your temperament and how to integrate it in your Fatherhood.
A FATHER’S JOURNEY REDEFINED
In this final module, Flavor summarizes the lessons and shares his final thoughts on the importance of Father’s building accountability partners.
