“It was for sure out of my element, but I learned some new things and a great way to spend time with Brooklyn,” added Ehnes.

Other fathers have been giving positive feedback as well and Gaetz said a common lesson has helped fathers untie a common issue.

“We especially see tips on untangling hair. I know even for these two (Ehnes and Brookyln) it can be a struggle at home,” Gaetz said.

“It’s not just for dads, moms have also joined and took part and they are more than welcomed as well,” she added.

The sessions are held drop-in style over a three-hour period.

“We were there for about an hour. Everyone was so nice and very patient with me. Which is a good thing. I learned different techniques and even some braids,” Ehnes said.

Gaetz feels it’s also a great experience for kids and their parents.

“Just having that quality time with their dad is a great bonding moment. As employees and seeing that happen while their daughters laugh is a great thing to see.
