Barnes, of McDonough, has written several books on fatherhood and parenting, including Daddy Everyday, Mommy Everyday, The Better YOU and Creative Juices. A graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta and Thomas Edison State University, he serves as director of Daddy Everyday Inc., a 501 (c) (3) fatherhood outreach program based in McDonough, which seeks to empower parents and to encourage children. In particular, Daddy Everyday’s focus is to motivate fathers to be active in their children’s lives.

To achieve this goal, the nonprofit uses a Students/Educators Recognition Program, Daddy Up Course / Workshops and a monthly Family Fun Event.

“Today’s dads want to be more engaged with their children, however recognize they could use a little assistance in being a better dad,” said Barnes.
