A program that gets dads more involved in the lives of their children at school is impacting families all over the country.

It's called Watch DOGS — Dads of Great Students — and NBC 5 morning anchor Marc Fein hosted an event in Prosper that showed just how much this program means to families.

The dads were there, the students were there and even a dad in a giant dog outfit helped fire the kids up for the event.

All four Prosper-area elementary schools participated in this major launch event, which took place at the Prosper high school arena. The program helps dads spend at least one entire day with their child at school.

"I want to be a good role model for my daughter," Percy Clark, whose daughter goes to Folsom elementary in Prosper said. "She's my everything. I'm here for her."

Bill Anderson, whose son goes to Cockerill Hill Elementary School, didn't underestimate what it meant to him as a dad.

"I'm fortunate to have a duaghter to do this with and to spend time with," he said. "The schools let us come in there and spend the time. It's priceless."

FC Dallas goalie Chris Seitz and former Rangers pitcher Mike Henneman were featured speakers. They talked about the importance of being there for your kids, and these kids obviously get it.

"I like to have my dad around at my school cause I love him," Folsom Elementary School fourth grader Kaitlyn Clark said.

Cockerill Hill Elementary School's Keaton Anderson echoed that sentiment.

"It's really fun because my dad gets to go to school with me and spend time with me and help me with my grades," Anderson said.

It was only a launch event, but the this program is already impacting more than 4,000 schools in 46 states.

AmTRAN is recalling nearly 27,000 JVC television stands because of faulty assemblies that can crack and tip over unexpectedly.

Consumers with JVC 42-inch Model EM42FTR televisions with serial numbers beginning with the letter T should detach their television immediately and contact AmTRAN for a replacement part. Model and serial numbers are located on the bottom left on the back of the television.

Customers should contact AmTRAN at 855-328-6650 8 a.m.-5 p.m. ET weekdays or JVC at www.JVC-tv.com and click on the safety notice tab at the bottom of the page.

JVC officials said customers reported several cracked stands, but no injuries.

This model television was sold by BJ's Wholesale, Costco Wholesale, Sam's Club, Walmart, and other retail stores nationwide from February through August 2014.

Hazard: the neck of the stand can crack and cause the television to tip over unexpectedly, posing a risk of impact injury to the consumer.

It’s home, sweet, home today for a North Texas couple and their three children, who are now officially a family of five.

Joshua and Jeralee Redmon have been foster parents with Buckner International in Dallas since 2011.

"The couple originally became interested in fostering when they were unable to conceive,” says Lauri Ann Hanson, senior media relations coordinator at Buckner. “However, the more they were educated on the foster children in need of homes the more they made the personal realization that fostering was less about growing their family and more about providing a supportive environment for children."

Hanson said the Redmons have welcomed 11 children -- from newborn to age 7 -- into their home over the years. While fostering the children, the Redmons continued to be open to provide a permanent home to a child should the need arise.

That need happened in the span of just two weeks, but it was three children not just one available for adoption. All three had had high health risks and were hospitalized after they were placed in the Redmons’ home.

“Ayden was diagnosed with epilepsy, Cheyenne underwent cranial surgery and Abby Mae was deemed ‘failure to thrive’ due to severe influx that inhibited her from growing,” Hanson told NBCDFW in an email.

The Redmons nursed the children back to health, then learned all three were available for adoption.

The couple immediately said yes, and now their home is the forever home for Ayden, 3, Cheyenne, 2 , and Abby Mae, 6 months.

Hood County Judge Ralph Walton, Jr., made it official on Friday as he presided over three adoptions.

Thank you to the Redmons and Lauri Ann Hanson at Buckner for the pictures.
