Inspired by actor Justin Baldoni’s Man Enough, Dinner @ Dads is an opportunity for men to get together over a shared meal to talk and listen to stories about what it means to be a man. How we have come to this place in gender relations and what the future of gender relationships might be from the male perspective.
“Men are renowned for their reluctance to open up and talk about their experiences and emotions in a heart-felt way. Dinner @ Dads has shown just how wrong this assumption might be.
I think that perhaps the problem is not that they don’t want to talk, they simply don’t know how to have these conversations.
Dinner @ Dads has shown that men really do want to support and care for each other.”
One of the most powerful realisations in my life has been that everyone is struggling. The man that is standing beside you has the same feelings of uncertainty and doubt. He too worries that he may not be a good enough father, partner, brother or son. That he is not being a good enough mate. He too is confused about who he is and what he is expected to be and to do.
We are all struggling and we are all just doing the best we can.
