Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the success of the three previous volumes in this series----The Expectant Father; The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year; and Fathering Your Toddler----this new book is similarly packed with facts, tips, and advice on all aspects of fatherhood. When is it the best time to encourage a child's independence? What's the difference between daycare vs. preschool? What are the unique ways fathers impact their youngster's life? The answers to these questions and hundreds more are found in the pages of this easy-to-follow, informative volume. With wisdom, compassion, and humor, author Armin Brott devotes a chapter to each school year from prekindergarten through the fourth grade. In each chapter he outlines the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social changes the child is going though, and examines the emotional and psychological development the father may be experiencing. He also discusses issues that develop between dad and mom as well as matters that involve the whole family. In addition, each chapter contains a section called You and Your Child, in which activities and issues appropriate to the given age are discussed. Other topics cover the latest research on child development, including brain growth, good and bad news about watching television, and the use of computers and other technology. There is ample advice for dads who are older, single, divorced, in the military, stepfathers, and stay-at-home dads, and the book incorporates the author's and other fathers' personal experiences, as well as the advice of top researchers in the field. Illustrated throughout with delightful New Yorker cartoons that underscore the universality of the joys and woes of parenting, Fathering Your School-Age Child is an essential sourcebook for every dad. It's certain to give every mom helpful insights as well.
