Conventional wisdom holds that fathers have few parenting skills and that mothers always know best. The single father is often considered a mythical creature, found only in sitcoms as an object of humor or pity. Where does that leave real single dads? Too often, it makes them susceptible to overcompensation or apathy.
Tez Brooks knows those feelings all too well. He’s traveled that road with his own children after an unexpected divorce. The Single Dad Detour is the result of his journey and the lessons he’s learned along the way. It’s a guidebook for the rocky road of single fatherhood, extending encouragement, confidence, and challenges, using specific examples from dads who’ve survived parenting and have hope to offer.
There are no unreachable requirements for perfect fatherhood here and no twisty theological mysteries—just authentic, down-to-earth wisdom from one dad to another.
My thoughts: I think this book is a much needed resource! Tez Brooks has been there when it comes to being a single dad, so this book is just what I would recommend to a man who has recently become a single dad. I love all the resources that he has in the book, from articles and radio sermons to his own personal stories. His humor was very refreshing, and I think that this book will be an encouragement to single dad's every where.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
