In this new edition of First-time Father, authors Graeme Russell and Tony White describe how the desire of new fathers to be more actively involved with the day-to-day raising of their children has increased over the last five years. Men are now more aware of the impact their involvement has on their children’s development, right from the start. They want to know what is going on at each stage of the pregnancy, what their role in childbirth is, and how to share the parenting with their partner after the birth. They also are increasingly looking for ways to combine their working lives with their family lives. From their 40 years of research and practical work with new fathers, the authors cover the five most common questions contemporary dads are asking: one, how important am I as the father? Two, what does my child need exactly? Three, how can I connect with my new baby. . . and stay connected through their lives? Four, how can my partner and I work as a team? Five, how can I include my child in all aspects of my life? This practical and down-to-earth book offers solutions and options answering these questions and many more. Most importantly, it recognizes that men, increasingly, want a satisfying home life as well as a successful career and to be a vital part of their children’s lives.

About the Author:

Graeme Russell began his work on fatherhood in the 1970s. He is a leading international researcher and practitioner on fathers and families, with six books to his credit on fathers, families, and work/life including The Changing Role of Fathers and A Practical Guide for Fathers. Formerly associate professor of psychology at Macquarie University, he works with leading national and international organizations to implement effective approaches to work/life, flexibility, and diversity, including the highly successful workplace program "Men at Work." Tony White, a psychologist and manager of health and welfare services, has worked for 40 years with families, focusing particularly on the antenatal and postnatal role of fathers. He has developed the "Men in Families Project," a program for first-time fathers on the north coast of New South Wales that provides support for fathers from the outset.

Review:

"Graeme and Tony give due recognition to this momentous change in men’s lives and . . . provide a plain talking guide along the way. I recommend this book to all those men making the shift to fatherhood." —Richard Fletcher, author, The Dad Factor

Greater recognition is given to the emerging group of men who are actively seeking to be highly involved as fathers. More options are provided for this group. Greater emphasis is given to family patterns where both parents share paid work and caring. New material has been added to the team parenting and couple relationship sections. the chapter on integrating work and family has been substantially revised and covers the latest trends and options for men to take either parental or paternity leave. It seems that what new fathers are wanting has continued to change over the last five years. In this revised edition of FIRSt tIME FAtHER, the authors Dr Graeme Russell and tony White (who both work extensively with new fathers) show that contemporary men want to: have a strong and enduring relationship with their children; be actively involved in the day-to-day care of their children; share the parenting and paid work equally with their partner; take extended leave from paid work to be the primary caregiver for a period of time; and reduce their hours of work (for example, to part-time) to be highly involved in caring for their child.
