Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0912500964, Paperback)

This book, written especially for the often-neglected male half of the parenting team, is a father's guide to making wise investments in his children and family.

In BECOMING A FATHER, author Dr. William Sears shares his own story of maturing into fatherhood, discovering the joys of being an involved dad, and weathering the changes that children bring to a marriage.

This book discusses the father's role during childbirth, different ways a father can interact and bond with his child, discipline, balancing the demads of a job with the needs of a family, and more!

New information in this revised edition includes additional information for families where both parents work along with updated information on support during childbirth, co-sleeping, and breastfeeding.

Dr. Sears understands the concerns and conflicts of both fathers and mothers. Reading this book will help both partners understand each other better as they share the important work of raising children.
