Using the analogy of baseball, this book focuses on fundamental aspects of good fathering and provides strategies for raising children. Chapters are divided into nine lessons that address: preparing for fatherhood, deciding to be actively and emotionally involved, and being thoughtfully aware; different types of child temperaments and parenting techniques; building family traditions and making memories; preventing and predicting disciplinary situations; working with your spouse; parenting alone and raising children in a calm environment; the developmental needs of children at different ages and parenting strategies; coping with mistakes and limitations; and father support groups.
