“The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year” helps new dads feel better about their somewhat emotional and confusing new role as father, and two lucky winners have the opportunity to receive Armon Brott’s dad-to-dad advice for father’s in this audiobook random drawing.
Within The New Father, Brott offers sound advice for new dads on everything from dealing with a crying baby to finding time for sex, and the many changes of life that come with a baby’s arrival and developmental changes throughout the first year.
Answers are given to questions like, How can you become an effective, involved father when you see your baby for only half an hour after work every day? How do moms and dads parent differently? What impact does fatherly involvement have on a child’s intellectual and social intelligence? When should babies reach certain developmental benchmarks? What is the best way to start saving for your child’s college education?
The book/audiobook is broken down and arranged on a month-by-month basis, just like The Expectant Father is presented, where Brott charts the physical, intellectual, verbal, and emotional changes the child is going through, and examines the emotional and psychological developments the father may be experiencing as well. Brott suggests activities appropriate to each month of the child’s development, and covers such parenting issues as finding quality child care and understanding changes in the relationship with one’s partner.
