Overview

Written by a veteran social worker, therapist, and men's counselor who has spent many years as a live-away dad himself, Live-Away Dads is a practical and encouraging guide for fathers who want to make the best of their relationships with their children after a divorce or breakup.

From his personal and professional experience, especially his years as a custody advisor to the Illinois courts, William C. Klatte is highly attuned to the special struggle of non-custodial fathers. He shows how emotions-especially anger, depression, and feelings of powerlessness-often control men's behavior with former partners and others, and he guides fathers in acknowledging and expressing anger more effectively. With guidance on dealing with the courts, working out visitation, communicating with the children's mother, creating a child-friendly home, and much more, Klatte helps live-away dads through the toughest challenges of single parenting. Practical and inspiring, Live-Away Dads will indelibly change for the better the way we approach parenting after divorce.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Klatte--a psychotherapist, social worker, and divorced father of two grown daughters who lived with their mother--offers solid advice and encouragement to men facing life apart from their children. Klatte begins by advising fathers to take care of themselves, including dealing with anger and depression--good advice for anyone coping with a major life change. He stresses the importance of staying involved with your children despite personal difficulties or the challenges of working with their mother. Later sections deal with cooperation, using the court system, developing parenting skills, and finding support groups. This is an especially useful book because Klatte strives hard to maintain a neutral position on many issues. His is not a strident attack on mothers or courts or unfairness; rather, he seeks to help fathers "get along" for the sake of their children and for their own benefit. Highly recommended for public and community college libraries.--Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD
