THE Book for Single Fathers
Beginning with chapters on reassuring children after the family break up, communications, affection and discipline, the book continues on looking at the unique challenges associated with raising girls and boys. These chapters I thought were especially helpful in coming to grips with the different approaches needed for parenting each gender of child.
The next part of the book looks at helping a single dad balance all the demands on his life. From making a house or apartment a home and organizing and cooking to time management and medical skills, these chapters are life savers for a single dad. Some of the best life management advice I have ever seen in print is right here. And the recipes in the cooking section are easy and inexpensive, and the end product will please your kids at the dinner table.
Finally, the book deals with the relationship between you and your ex. Effective communications, dealing with money, handling differences in parenting styles and avoiding being manipulated by the children are some of the topics covered.
It is hard for me to imagine a more comprehensive approach to managing life as a single dad. The Complete Single Father touches all aspects of a single dad's life and offers solid advice, encouragement, practical steps and hope for making it through a major life challenge. This book is a must-have for every single dad's library, nightstand and briefcase.
