Fathering Your Toddler: A Dad’s Guide to the Second and Third Years
The second and third years of a child’s life are notoriously challenging and parents–especially fathers–often find themselves overwhelmed trying to make sense of their child’s (and their own) developmental stages.

Fathering Your School-Age Child: A Dad’s Guide to the Wonder Years, 3-9
Being the father of a preschooler or school-age child is as bewildering as it is wonderful. As your child grows and learns, you’re growing and learning too. But when your child enters preschool, things really start change.

Father for Life: A Journey of Joy, Challenge and Change
While there have been many books about child development and motherhood, little has been written about how fathers change and develop as parents or about how children influence their fathers’ development. Yet most fathers know that a man who’s just found out that his wife is expecting is a very different man from the one he’ll be when he first holds his newborn in his arms. And that same dad will have changed again–psychologically and emotionally–by the time his baby speaks for the first time. But no matter the child’s age, a father is always a father. Read more…
The Military Father: A Hands-on Guide for Deployed Dads
Fathers today play a greater role with their families and children than ever before. However, military dads and dads-to-be are often separated from their families for extended periods of time. Unfortunately, there are very few resources for military (and deployed civilian) fathers, who are looking for guidance on how to be in close touch with their families back home. The Military Father, written by the country’s leading authority on fatherhood, fills that gap, providing deployed dads with everything they need to know to stay (or become) involved with and connected to their family regardless of the distance that separates them.

The Single Father: A Dad’s Guide to Parenting without a Partner
Every year in this country, one million fathers get divorced, and another million unmarried men become fathers. Add the million gay fathers out there and the widowers who have children under the age of eighteen, and it’s clear there is a huge population of American men confronted with single parenthood. In The Single Father, best-selling author and fatherhood expert Armin Brott provides single dads with the tools they need to establish and nurture a healthy relationship with their children, whether they have full custody, shared custody, or no custody. Read more…
Throwaway Dads: The Myths and Barriers that Keep Men from Being the Fathers They Want to Be
There’s no question that fathers are vital to child rearing. Studies prove that children with active fathers are far happier and better adjusted than those without. Nevertheless, we are bombarded with negative images of neglectful, uninterested, abusive, deadbeat, and lazy dads. The overall message is clear: fathers are not nearly as important as mothers to the family. But in Throwaway Dads, Armin Brott and Ross Parke explode such myths with real-life studies and hard-hitting statistics. Read more…
