As a coach, I’m sometimes asked for parenting advice. Although I offer it occasionally, I see my role as being mainly to support you in embracing you own, instinctual understanding of fatherhood.
These parenting resources for dads may help you in that process. I have found these books to be very helpful myself in learning how to connect to my children and understand my role as a dad.
Most of them are science-based. Some of them convey the wisdom of our earth-based ancestry. I find all of them are full of common sense. And they share a deep respect for children, the small people, and how to hold and nourish their gifts in a good way.
