Aiming to disprove the stereotype that paints all teen fathers as uncaring and irresponsible, this book provides young dads with parenting advice geared especially to them. The guide reveals that the reality can be quite different for many young fathers if they have a chance to parent their child and if appropriate support services are offered. These useful tips for young dads--including taking as much responsibility as they can, knowing their rights, and ultimately finding joy in their parenting role--help shape teens who are far less likely to run from their responsibilities. In this updated edition, a new chapter has been added along with new quotes and real stories from modern young dads who are dealing with the many issues of parenting too soon. This advice can be used to involve the father while the partner is still pregnant, learn skills of parenting, and plan for his future and that of the child. (Author abstract)
