Summary
Good fathering is a powerful force in the lives of children, a force that can markedly reduce their risks of crime, substance abuse, depression and bad attitudes to school and at the same time increasing their chances of having fulfilled lives. But even when dads know this, they usually just don't know what to do. This book from best-selling parenting author Bruce Robinson includes stories and tips from TV personality Sir Michael Parkinson, author Bill Bryson, mountaineer Sir Chris Bonnington, England Test Cricket Captain David Gower, Senior Politicians Theresa May, Baroness Virginia Bottomley and Sir Peter Bottomly, British Airways CEO Sir Rodney Eddington and others. Topics include drugs, sex, divorce, depression, being there for your kids, overwork - dealing with the 'provider instinct', fathers as confidence-givers, encouraging sport and community service, the mother as the 'gateway, helping kids feel special, showing vulnerability as a parent, the impact of an affair, sacrificing comfort to avoid commuting time, handling the risks of boarding schools, being away, hugging kids, special family holidays, being authentic, encouraging daughters to succeed, teaching compassion at the family meal table, religion, how to transform fathering, marriage and kids, impact of disability on parenting, working from home, anger, the powerful role of grandparents, fame, creating special father-child times, adoption, learning from mothers, being different to a cold, aloof father, giving kids freedom to take risks, disability and abortion, politics and fathering, dads in prison and others. All profits from the sale of this ebook go to the work of The Fathering Project, a university-based not-for-profit organization which aims to give every child a strong and appropriate father figure (www.thefatheringproject.org)
