In this passionate parenting book for dads, Bodé reflects on how his own upbringing, alongside stigmas about fatherhood, race, and masculinity, have impacted his experiences of being a father, whilst talking candidly about how to overcome the challenges commonly experienced by parents - from breaking generational cycles and adapting to modern-day family dynamics to communicating with your child and achieving a healthy work-life balance.
Explore the pages of this parenting guide to discover:
- 10 chapters that discuss what it means to be a father in the present day
- A specific focus on shifting the narrative away from stigmas and stereotypes about fatherhood, race, and masculinity.
Fatherhood by Papa B addresses fatherhood in such a way that is hard-working and practical, yet incredibly down-to-earth. According to a recent study conducted by the BBC, whilst half of parents are fathers, 99% of the research on parenting focuses on mothers. This brilliant book for dads is working to even the balance as studies have demonstrated that supportive father-child relationships matter just as much as mother-child relationships for children's well-being and development.
A must-have volume for all parents, father figures and fathers-to-be, Fatherhood by Papa B is set out to teach what studies have revealed, in the sense that involved fatherhood can also improve a man's cognitive skills, health and capacity for empathy, whilst building confidence, self-esteem and enhancing emotional regulation and expression. This brilliant book looks at how a father's own upbringing and well-being can impact and revolutionize the relationship with their child.
