9781931868518: Father's Milk: Nourishment and Wisdom for the First-Time Father (Capital Ideas)

New fathers have at least as many questions and worries as new mothers. Will this be the end of my freedom? Will my child replace me in my partner’s heart? What if I turn out as rotten a father as my father was? What does it mean to be a "good father"? "Father’s Milk" provides answers to a myriad of questions that today’s new dads ask themselves. "Conscious fathering" is the phrase Stein and Samu use to describe a new perspective on fathering - hearing and seeing your child and learning from her what is lacking in her upbringing. Instead of preaching how to be a good father in 12 steps, Stein and Samu demonstrate good fathering through stories and practical advice about everyday situations.
