Aiming to disprove the stereotype that paints all teen fathers as uncaring and irresponsible, this book provides young dads with parenting advice geared especially to them. The guide reveals that the reality can be quite different for many young fathers if they have a chance to parent their child and if appropriate support services are offered. These useful tips for young dads—including taking as much responsibility as they can, knowing their rights, and ultimately finding joy in their parenting role—help shape teens who are far less likely to run from their responsibilities. In this updated edition, a new chapter has been added along with new quotes and real stories from modern young dads who are dealing with the many issues of parenting too soon. This advice can be used to involve the father while the partner is still pregnant, learn skills of parenting, and plan for his future and that of the child.

Grade 8-12-In a positive, straightforward, and easy-to-understand manner, Lindsay provides a wealth of information that will be helpful to anyone facing the responsibility of parenting. Aimed particularly at teenaged males, the text includes advice regarding their role as fathers and their relationships with their baby, the child's mother, and grandparents. Without bias, the author discusses the options of childbirth, adoption, abortion, marriage, cohabitation, and separate lives. To prepare teen dads for each phase of the baby's life before and after its birth, information on child development is provided. Moving forward in time, the text addresses the issue of birth control, safe sex, family planning, and preparing for the infant's future as well as one's own. Later chapters refer readers to other titles from this publisher for more guidance in specific areas. The annotated bibliography lists related books and pamphlets, along with their sources and costs. The book's tone is neither didactic, discouraging, nor condescending, and it's free from unnecessary medical, psychological, or technical jargon.
