This book had a lot of great helpful advice, not only for first-time dad, but for all dads to continue to keep in mind, great practices pertaining to raising their children.
It does have a nice “Christian” overtone (not too heavy though) which I appreciate. The book helps us to steer and guide our children through a lot of the cultural and societal challenges of today.
I also really appreciated the last chapter, Blink, in which the author really brings home the point of how fast these parenting years will go by. Here are some great additional chapters as well:
– Chapter 5: How to Survive a New Baby
– Chapter 6: Loving Your Wife
– Chapter 7: Loving Your Baby’s Mother
– Chapter 8: Boys and Girls
– Chapter 10: The Very Keys to Your Child’s Heart
– Chapter 11: Spiritual Information
There’s no guarantee that our children will turn out and grow up to be any particular way, but the ideal is to be as engaged, as involved as possible. Of
I highly recommend this book for parents, especially men, not just as a beginning, but as a refresher throughout the parenting years for your children.
