The Modern Dad's Handbook
Bookmark and Share
Being a father isn't something you are; it's something you do. The job description of fathers has changed dramatically. Much more is expected of dads today -- and they expect much more of themselves. The real-life, positive role models of modern dads are few and far between. So, most men struggle between an old model that no longer works and a new model that seems undefined. Keith and Sharmai welcome author John Badalament, whose latest book, The Modern Dads Handbook, outlines specific strategies to help today's Dads be the men and fathers they aspire to be.
