A Regular Dad: Making Fatherhood Fun

A Regular Dad: Making Fatherhood Fun. In today’s world of overlapping parental roles, a father may find himself somewhat confused as to just how he fits into the family picture. Should he be permissive? Should he be strict? Should he take an active part in the lives of his children, or should he merely be a family figure-head? Is it possible that he can love his children, yet still fail to be a good dad? Questions such as these are not abnormal nor uncommon. Fatherhood is one of the most important stewardships a man will ever assume; and rather than being a burden, it ought to be a very natural, enjoyable, “regular” experience. With warmth, humor and practical suggestions A Regular Dad addresses essential topics such as teaching self-esteem, communicating love, conveying the value of work, creating memories, and establishing traditions. It is through the treatment of these topics that the author begins to identify what it means to be a “good dad” and how a father should be woven into the fabric of a family unit.

    In today’s world of overlapping parental roles, a father may find himself somewhat confused as to just how he fits into the family picture. Should he be permissive? Should he be strict? Should he take an active part in the lives of his children, or should he merely be a family figure-head? Is it possible that he can love his children, yet still fail to be a good dad? Questions such as these are not abnormal nor uncommon. Fatherhood is one of the most important stewardships a man will ever assume; and rather than being a burden, it ought to be a very natural, enjoyable, “regular” experience. With warmth, humor and practical suggestions A Regular Dad addresses essential topics such as teaching self-esteem, communicating love, conveying the value of work, creating memories, and establishing traditions. It is through the treatment of these topics that the author begins to identify what it means to be a “good dad” and how a father should be woven into the fabric of a family unit.

    In contrast to other books on fatherhood and fathering techniques, A Regular Dad incorporates a different twist by including both parents in the fathering process. At the end of each chapter, topics for discussion are presented so that both Mom and Dad can function as a team in leading the children to live happy and successful lives. Fatherhood is indeed a challenging endeavor, but an exciting one. With a touch of encouragement, a lot of patience, and little guidance from this book, there are no limits to the good that a dad, even just a “regular dad” can do.
