BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) —   Dads in Dorchester are teaming up to help each other and their kids over donuts! That’s what happened this week at Boston Public Schools when dads were invited to join their kids for a special event that focused on connecting fathers with valuable resources to help them help their kids.  

One of the main things this event does is it helps break down negative stereotypes surrounding the relationship between fathers and their kids.  

“One of the things I immediately noticed was the presence of father figures, and I said “wow”, this is not what we see and hear about our community, we actually see the opposite,” said school district principal Sarita Thomas.  

Thomas wants to create a better and more positive narrative around fathers and their presence in the lives of their kids. 

“And the thing is, not every child has a father figure, and sometimes just being there and showing that there are people that care can [hopefully] resonate with some of the other children,” said Syr Anthony Angelo, a dad who was at the event with his twins. 

“It's been a really positive experience so far, especially having something so targeted for dads that are often cast away [and aside] sometimes,” he added. 

Another goal for the event is for fathers to get to know what their kids are learning and connect with the school on a deeper level.
