Titans Standing for Strong Father-Daughter Bonds

 

Tennessee TitansResearch confirms that the benefits of healthy father-daughter bonds result in decreased rates of promiscuity, substance abuse, dropping out of high school, image obsession, depression and even suicide. 

To help strengthen communication and enhance time spent together between teen/young adult daughters and their dads, Titans Assistant Head Coach Craig Johnson and Linebacker David Thornton have gotten behind the Nashville Father-Daughter Summit, a program of the National Center for Fathering that will be presented this Saturday, September 11th, at Hendersonville Church of Christ.


 

Coach Johnson served as the host and emcee for the kick-off luncheon in July where fifty leaders representing churches, schools, local businesses and community organizations gathered to meet with Carey Casey, CEO of the National Center for Fathering about the upcoming Summit.

Johnson will be inducted into the Fathering Hall of Fame at 4:00pm during the closing session of Saturday’s Father-Daughter Summit in recognition of his commitment to his family and service to the Tennessee Titans and the Nashville Community.
