Beschreibung

What does being a dad in the 21st Century really mean?
Men today want to play an active role in the upbringing of their children; that means knowing how to cope with them, play with them, control them and love them.
Becoming a father however, can be an extremely daunting prospect, after all it is completely uncharted territory.
This wonderful book is not only for expectant and new fathers but covers the whole range of issues dads encounter from conception through to teenage traumas. Situations such as step-fatherhood and the changing relationship with partners are also discussed in a sensitive and informative style. The stresses imposed by modern lifestyles on fathers and kids are looked at as well as the problems and benefits encountered by the fact that kids today are often very sophisticated and clued-up.
Chapters include:
* I'm Going to be a Dad
* Bonding for Fathers
* Discipline
* Learning to Play Again
* Teenage Traumas
Written in a light-hearted yet informative style, and including numerous interviews with fathers themselves, this book reflects the latest thinking and theories on how to be a good father.

Autorentext

DAVID COHEN is a psychologist, writer and film-maker. After gaining his Ph.D. in psychology, he founded and edited for eleven years the magazine Psychology News; his previous books include Psychologists on Psychology, Being a Man, the best-selling How to Succeed in Psychometric Tests, and Alter Egos: Multiple Personalities.

Klappentext
Being a dad isn't easy -- just ask David Cohen.

In this personal and humorous account, he shares with us not only his experiences of being a father, but his in-depth knowledge of psychology. Along the way, you'll pick up tips -- about child development from the terrible twos to teenage tantrums; about sex with your partner in the weeks after childbirth; about accepting your stepchildren's rules about socks.

The Father's Book is a mine of information you'll re-read many times. It is a wise best friend who can advise on discipline, how much time to spend with the kids, favouritism, their play, personalities and IQ, helping with homework and more serious problems and allowing them space to grow and leave. You'll wonder how you ever coped without it.
