The best-selling series of parenting handbooks for new dads is now available in a two-volume boxed set.
An ideal gift for the birth of a child, these books skillfully and with humor guide men through the daunting experience of being a new father, from birth through the toddler years. The first volume, The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year, answers hundreds of questions, such as, How can you become an effective, involved father when you see your baby for only half an hour after work every day? and What is the best way to start saving for your child's college education? Author Armin Brott charts the physical, intellectual, verbal, and emotional changes the child is going through, and examines the emotional and psychological developments the father may be experiencing. He suggests activities appropriate to each month and covers such parenting issues as finding quality child care and understanding changes in the relationship with one's partner.
The second volume, The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the Toddler Years, devotes a chapter to every three months of the second and third years, addressing such questions as, At what age should you introduce your child to computers? and what guidelines should you follow when choosing a preschool? Following the format of the previous volume, this book examines a multitude of topics, including dealing with the baby's fears, choosing play activities, developing a parenting style, toilet training, and teaching kids about money.
Incorporating the author's and other fathers' personal experiences, as well as the advice of top researchers in the field, the books are illustrated with delightful cartoons that will make even the most anxious father chuckle.
