When my wife told me she was pregnant with our first child I was scared down to my socks. I didn’t know the first thing about babies. What’s a layette? And why does my wife want to buy one now? What are we going to do with all the pink dresses when we have a boy? Which end of the baby do you diaper? Why won’t it (No! He or she!) Stop crying? And why does my wife keep talking to me like I should have known these things since I was 5? (Because boys usually don’t!) Why is she shopping so much when the baby isn’t even due for 6 more months? If you’re like I was when I was first a daddy, and want to avoid some of my mistakes, and take advantage of some of the things I’ve learned, this is the book for you. While it’s not all you need to know from conception through toddler years, it’s a good start.

A NEWFOUND FAMILY… Suddenly, divorced dad Gabe Lawrence was more than a part-time father…. He and his adorable girls were now a full-time family! Seeking advice on raising his six-year-old twins, he turned to Dr. Sabrina Moore—noted expert on kids. Gabe thought the good doctor's theories were a little off. So to bring her research back to reality, he invited Sabrina to observe his fledgling family and get to know his daughters. But Sabrina was more than Gabe ever expected—her eyes, her smile and the funny thing she did to his heart…where had that come from? He would bet his newfound daddyhood that her research shouldn't include distracting him with her kisses…or making him fall in love with her! Should it?
In his book Daddyhood, Charles Blount, well-known author of Whatever Happened to Charlie Boy continues his journey to break the chain of abuse and neglect, which he vividly describes in the story about Charlie Boy. Mr. Blount poses the question, “What is a Daddy?” and presents in convincing argument that, though any man can become a father, it takes lots of work and something special to become a “Daddy.” The author presents his argument through the personal experience of marriage, childbirth and divorce. He also argues that even the break-up of a marriage does not have to mark the end of a family, and for the sake of one’s child, should not. In a series of simple rules, Mr. Blount shows the reader how to accomplish this for the good of your child and your own well being; good advice for anyone wanting the best for their family.
This is about a man who became a father for the first time when most men his age were grandfathers. It's about how he coped, how his wife coped and how his in-laws coped. But most of all, it's about how a late life daddy loved his young sons.
Drawing from his own experiences, Driscoll encourages dads to pass on their values, share in their kids' sense of discovery, enjoy the playful and endure the painful - for quieter and more-ordered days come too quickly. Driscoll's vision is about hope, a belief that your child and all children will make a difference - will change the world. This book is truly a revealing and enlightening exploration of the moments that make a man a daddy.
The period between World War I and World War II was an important time in the history of gender relations, and of American fatherhood. Revealing the surprising extent to which some of yesterday's fathers were involved with their children, The Modernization of Fatherhood recounts how fatherhood was reshaped during the Machine Age into the configuration we know today. LaRossa explains that during the interwar period the image of the father as economic provider, pal, and male role model, all in one, became institutionalized. Using personal letters and popular magazine and newspaper sources, he explores how the social and economic conditions of the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression—a period of technical innovation as well as economic hardship—fused these expectations into a cultural ideal. With chapters on the U.S. Children's Bureau, the fathercraft movement, the magazine industry and the development of Parent's Magazine, and the creation of Father's Day, this book is a major addition to the growing literature on masculinity and fatherhood.
