25 Tips for Divorced Dads: How to create special memories and grow your bonds with your children not only has tips that I know will help you stay connected with your kids; but it doubles as a workbook to help you and your kids create your own tips. This book came out of my own personal struggles of going through my divorce while traveling for work as a corporate field trainer, plus living in and out of hotels. I needed to find ways to bond with my son since I was no longer able to see him on an everyday basis. My goal for you and your kids is to make the transition as seamless as possible so all of you can create new positive memories.
25 Tips for Divorced Dads is dedicated to my son who just like your kids had to grow up faster than they had to do to the separation. Our kids need our support and it is very vital that we as dad’s stay in our kids’ lives. 25 Tips for Divorced Dads will help you get on a new parenting path by using these tips as well as generating to create new ones. These tips I do hope will help you get through the pain of a divorce while putting your kids first in your life.
You and your kids will realize how important it will be that all of you stay connected throughout each of your lives. These 25 tips might seem very basic but believe me when I say that when our emotions have taken us over we do not see what we need to do to be a wonderful dad. I truly believe in this book and that it will change you and your kids for the best.
Recommendations and Reviews
25 Tips for Divorced Dads is an easy, simple guide for divorced and separated dads to keep the bonds with children strong and alive. We are in our third year of The Nurturing Father’s Program at Aurora Mental Health Center, and have had many father’s go through the program that are divorced, or have children that primarily reside with their moms. This book provides some wonderful guidance – as well as many easy and creative ideas that dads can implement at no cost, in order for the relationships with their children to grow and thrive.
It also teaches some very powerful, strong values. I particularly like the “notes” pages after each of the 25 tips, because the dads that participate in our program seem to enjoy working out of a journal, where they have the opportunity to write down thoughts and ideas. This is a great way to keep up that habit. Books about the subject of divorce often are very clinical in nature. We find that parents do not have the time or interest to check these out and read them. This book is not at all intimidating as it is small and compact, making it easy for dads to actually put these ideas and activities into motion.
