Stuff Every Dad Should Know by Brett Cohen on your radar. This book is full of indispensable wisdom that all hands-on fathers need including:
- How to Rid a Room of Monsters
- How to Change a Diaper
- How to Potty Train Your Child
- The Birds and the Bees (3 parts for little ones, bigger kids, and teens)
- Tips and Tricks for Managing Sibling Relations
- How to Teach Your Child to Drive
- How to Select a College
The book is divided into Baby Stuff, Little Kid Stuff, and Teen Stuff and Beyond. Every thing to do, such as How to Change a Diaper, takes up 2-4 pages of super useful information. This book is great for both Moms and Dads alike, single parents, or grandparents raising their grandchildren. This book would be a GREAT gift for first time Dads, or even, First time Moms! I found the Little Kid Stuff super helpful. As my three children are almost six, eight, and ten. "Stuff Every Dad Should Know" is not a joke book. It has actual, real information about how to do things! It's also super helpful for us moms too!
Above all, I say, do everything with love, patience and Grace, a whole lot of grace! Your children need you, your time, and your love above anything else.
Blending humor, practicality, and wholesome family values, Stuff Every Dad Should Know (Quirk Books; $9.95) is a must-have pocket reference for any dad or dad-to-be and a slam-dunk Father's Day gift.
