DAD is a deeply moving and inspiring collection of stories that represent the diversity of modern fatherhood and seeks to start a conversation that challenges the traditions associated with masculinity.
Including 20 powerful and defiant stories about postnatal depression, becoming a new dad during the pandemic, miscarriage, widowhood, stillbirth, co-parenting, childbirth trauma, work-life balance, new dads at work, shared parental leave, being a stay-at-home dad, gay fatherhood and surrogacy, being a stepdad, black fatherhood, raising child of dual heritage, being a single dad, faith and fatherhood, raising a child with autism, gender stereotypes and more.
Each chapter will take you on a journey; you will be immersed in that dad’s world. Underlying each of the dad’s stories is a persistent and driving force of love, defiance, humility and strength to be the best fathers they can be for their families.
This is a ground-breaking book. A movement. Never before have a group of men come together to bare their souls and speak so openly and honestly about their fatherhood experiences. This book aims to encourage better dialogue between colleagues, friends, and especially within families; between husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, dads and children.
Our call to action is for more open conversations, like the ones you are about to read.
Queenie’s Review –
This book is about 20 fathers who talk about their experiences and their perspectives as fathers in the UK. I learned a lot while reading this book. I learned about surrogacy, different organizations, and fathers who live in the UK. Some of the fathers were stay-at-home dad, single dads, and gay dads. Reading this book I have an understanding and a different perspective about fathers from different races. I also learned some new words while reading this book which is nappies and theater. Each chapter takes you on a ride from a father’s perspective of stillbirth, shared parental leave, child with autism, faith and fatherhood, and miscarriages. These fathers bear their hearts and souls to help start a dialogue with other fathers and families. This was an eye-opener book for me and I really enjoyed their experiences. I recommend this book to fathers all over the world. I give this book five stars.
