I purchased this book as a gift for a friend. My husband and I are familiar with it, having first appreciated its loving concepts and sensitive direction when our first daughter was born 25 years ago! It is truly a classic and one that continues to give knowledge and guidance, especially to new parents. It breaks the stereotype of the "uninvolved" or "distant" dad.

Dr. Pruett, a professor of Psychiatry at Yale University's Child Study Center, recently completed a five-year study of 17 two-parent families whose primary caregiver was the father. In this highly readable, intelligent, but not altogether objective report of his findings, the author enthusiastically concludes that fathers nurture well but differently. Though Pruett focuses on three families, discussing their problems and coping strategies, over half the material relates to subjects like competition among parents, continued paternal nurturance after divorce, gender role confusions, and long-term fathering solutions. A generously supportive book that updates James A. Levine's Who Will Raise the Children? ( LJ 9/15/76). Recommended for parenting and professional collections.
