Can you believe that Father’s Day is just around the proverbial corner?! It seems like I just took down our Christmas tree.
If a father in your life enjoys reading, I have a book to tell you about – one that would make a wonderfully thoughtful gift for Fathers Day: The Modern Dad’s Dilemma: How to Stay Connected with Your Kids in a Rapidly Changing World.
This very timely book helps dad connect (or re-connect) with their children. Written by an author who is, himself, a dad, The Modern Dad’s Dilemma recognizes and addresses the unique challenges facing today’s fathers.
Parents face situations in 2010 that parents in previous years could not have even imagined. Today, peer pressure can lead to far more disastrous circumstances and negative outside influences can, literally, wreck a child. Add in the competition parents face with technology (television, music, games, the internet, cell phones..) and it’s easy to see why the home can, at times, feel like a battleground.
The Modern Dad’s Dilemma: How to Stay Connected with Your Kids in a Rapidly Changing World provides hands-on advice, tips, insight, and even exercises that can help a father break through all of the chaos and develop the sort of relationship that will benefit his children the most.
The author, John Badalament, EdM, is an author, filmmaker, and Harvard-trained educator. He is an internationally recognized speaker on parenting and is the director of the acclaimed PBS documentary All Men are Sons: Exploring the Legacy of Fatherhood. He consults with schools, parent groups, and organizations throughout the world and his private world is shared with his wife and two children in Massachusetts.
The Modern Dad’s Dilemma
More is expected of dads today than ever before. Drawing on his experience working with thousands of dads and families, John Badalament delivers a hands-on approach to meeting the everyday challenges of modern fatherhood.
Told through the stories of a diverse group of fifteen real dads who have attended John Badalament’s pioneering workshops, The Modern Dad’s Dilemma is filled with practical information, road-tested activities, and key skills dads can put to use right away.
