"Flying in the face of long-held assumptions about the relative merits of mothers' and fathers' parenting styles, it is the first how-to child-raising guide ever to focus on the positive qualities that men bring to parenting. It emphasizes men's special contributions to the family unit, including a strong sense of play and exacting standards, and sets up the core elements of "fatherstyle" as a desirable model to be emulated by men and women alike. At a time when increasing numbers of men are spending more and more time with their children, this refreshingly different book is ideal for both fathers and mothers who are interested in new techniques that will lead to smarter parenting, better-adjusted, more confident children, and stronger, healthier families"--Publisher's description.
