Boys are growing up everywhere without fathers. To us, this is a big deal! Boys are not learning valuable qualities about what it means to be a man that they should be learning from their fathers. There are many people that are realizing this gap being formed.
Soncatchers is a Christian faith-based mentoring organization for boys without fathers. The Soncatcher vision began several years ago, when Joey Shaw was working as a family counselor in Edmond, Oklahoma. He had worked for 27 years at a community counseling center. It was during his time there that he noticed a trend;
there were many requests, by single mothers, requesting a male counselor to see their sons.
The presenting concerns were most often related to anger, bad attitudes, and defiant behaviors. Typically, these behaviors usually appeared to be directed towards the mother, siblings, and authority figures at school. With fathers becoming more absent in the American family, this leaves a gaping hole where male influence is needed.
Boys are feeling more and more impact from outside sources. Many of them will default towards things like music, television, movies, social networking instead of experiencing the impact of a loving father. Soncatcher mentoring believes that providing father-son like experiences such as hiking, going to athletic events, watching and discussing movies, fishing, playing catch, and serving side-by side in community projects will give these boys opportunities that will help guide their growth towards manhood. All these activities are designed to be fun for the boys but they are especially designed to have teachable moments for the boys. These teachable moments help with wisdom to assist boys in character, social and life skills development.
As a Christian faith-based organization, Soncatchers is open to all boys of all faiths who are from absent-father homes. For more information about Soncatchers For more information please call us, 405-308-3128, or visit www.soncatchersmentoring.com
