In this ground-breaking volume author Armin Brott gives single dads the knowledge, skills, and support they need to become-and remain-actively involved fathers. With the same thoroughness, accessibility, and humor that have made the books in his critically acclaimed NEW FATHER series the best and most popular fatherhood guides in the country, Brott steers divorced, separated, widowed, and never-married men through every aspect of fathering without a partner. Incorporating the advice of top psychologists, lawyers, and other experts, The Single Father offers a wealth of essential information and practical tips. Among the issues covered are: juggling work and family responsibilities; finding a lawyer; dealing with the psychological and emotional impact of separation and divorce on the dad, his ex, and his children; understanding and resolving custody and child-support arrangements making sure finances are in order; stocking a kitchen; planning fun--and educational--activities to do with the kids; and starting new relationships.

Illustrated with cartoons that underscore the challenges and, yes, even the satisfactions of single parenting, and complete with an extensive list of resources for divorced, and widowed dads The Single Father is one book no single dad can afford to do without. (Author abstract modified)
