There was a flurry of pieces about fatherhood flying around the Internet and on TV over the past weekend. With Father’s Day over, don’t expect to see that much about fathers in the news for a while. However, for those of you who want to get more information and resources about fathers throughout the rest of the year, check out a U.S. government website called Fatherhood.gov. Fatherhood.gov is hosted through the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, a service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
There are numerous policy, research and media resources on the website as well as links to fatherhood initiatives by state. One of the purposes of the initiative is to provide resources and initiatives to bring fathers together across the country and share their stories.

Below is a video hosted on the homepage of Fatherhood.gov from President Barack Obama about fathers.
