Mom as Gateway is a workshop designed to address what is known as Maternal Gatekeeping – when a mother’s beliefs about a father, as well as her behaviors, hinder a father’s involvement with his children. Moms attend three 1-hour workshops that emphasize the importance of paternal involvement and aim to facilitate co-parenting by breaking down barriers between mothers and fathers.
