Insightful and Inspiring Look Into the Stay-At-Home Dad Lifestyle
Libby Gill did a superb job writing a book on a parenting topic that has been misunderstood for quite some time - Stay-At-Home Dads. In her book ¿Stay-At-Home Dads: The Essential Guide To Creating The New Family,¿ Gill provides an honest and in-depth look at the stay-at-home dad lifestyle. She presents the practical reasons behind the choice these dads and their spouses made, the issues and daily challenges they faced together, how they resolved them, and how they managed to make the stay-at-home dad lifestyle work for their families. What is most impressive about Gill¿s book is that she does not impose a self-prescribed one-size-fits-all philosophy to parenting. That¿s because much of the information Gill provides comes from the interviews she conducted with the stay-at-home dads and their spouses. She eloquently addresses both sides of the coin in a well-balanced format. One that presents a TEAM (Together Everybody Achieves More) approach in which parenting is viewed and treated as an equal partnership. Gill¿s book, however, is about more than just the stay-at-home dad lifestyle. It is about the love, commitment, and passion that drives these parents to put the needs of their children first. In today`s world ¿putting children first¿ is easier said than done. But Gill, along with the parents, in this book, demonstrate how any parenting couple can make the stay-at-home lifestyle a successful and rewarding endeavor. Gills book is not just a book for parents who want to consider the stay-at-home dad lifestyle to read. It is a book every parent should read. How invigorating it was to finally read a book that offers an insight into parenting that any parent can relate to and benefit from. Hogan Hilling Proud Stay-at-home dadWas this review helpful?
