The Expectant Father Boxed Set: The New Father Series Guides Dad Through Fatherhood, Every Step of the Wayby Armin A. Brott
The best-selling series of parenting guides for dads-to-be and new dads is now available in a three-volume boxed set. The perfect gift for Father's Day, the birth of a child, or the announcement of pregnancy, this series guides men through the awe-inspiring process of becoming and being a father, from pregnancy through the toddler years. The first volume, The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips and Advice for Dads-to-Be, explores the emotional, financial, and even physical changes the father-to-be may experience during his partner's pregnancy. Sound advice from experts provides help on such issues as how to make sense of conflicting emotions, how pregnancy affects a couple's sex life, and how to start a college fund.
The second volume, The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year, charts the baby's physical, intellectual, verbal, and emotional development for the first 12 months. It 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 third 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.
Following the format of the second volume, it examines such topics as dealing with the baby's fears, play activities, 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.
