The ultimate stay-at-home dad : your essential manual for being an awesome full-time father / Shannon Carpenter.


"A practical guide for modern-day parenting geared towards stay-at-home dads, offering advice on everything from learning to cook and clean with children, to dealing with mental health and relationships, with the easygoing perspective that dads can use their natural talents to parent any way that they choose to. The Ultimate Stay-At-Home Dad manual takes the best advice and wisdom from a dads group, and puts it into a format to help new stay-at-home fathers. Characterized by actionable and direct advice to fathers, the book takes on parenting from a father's point of view and encourages dads to use their natural talents to become a better parent. That advice is further bolstered by an additional 57 other dads who also give advice. All this advice is framed by the author's personal stories that helps the reader connect with the content and drives the advice home. This is a book that takes on day to day parenting, not just as a stay-at-home dad--working fathers could benefit from this book as much at-home dads"-- Provided by publisher.
