The Complete Single Father: Reassuring Answers to Your Most Challenging Situations by Elaine Fantile Shimberg, Michael Shimberg

Being a single parent is a tough job no matter who you are, but if you’re a single dad, you likely feel you’ve entered a strange, new world. Whether your kids are twelve months old or twelve years old, the tips and advice in this comprehensive guide will make the little tricks of parenting feel like second nature to you. Authors Elaine Fantle Shimberg and her son, single father Michael Shimberg, show you how to:
Make your house (or apartment) a home
Juggle your work and personal schedule with that of your kids
Coparent with your ex for the kids’ sake
Handle special circumstances if you’re a widower
Celebrate holidays and deal with in-laws
Raise daughters, both youngsters and teens
Cook foods your kids will eat
Field common childhood maladies
Date again

Throughout, Fantle Shimberg and Shimberg include “Tips from the Trenches”—anecdotes from more than fifty single dads just like you on what works and what doesn’t—as well as recommendations from lawyers, marriage counselors, psychologists, social workers, teachers, and clergy members.

With The Complete Single Father, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy your kids while maintaining a stable environment and reducing stress for all involved—without losing your sense of humor!
