Positive advice for divorced dads and their families.
The country's leading authority on fathers' rights, Jeffery M. Leving, presents a definitive how-to resource for divorced dads of any age, background, and marriage history. Leving offers targeted guidance and suggests techniques for staying connected with children and dealing with ex-wives - and in some cases a new girlfriend or the wife's new boyfriend - during the divorce and afterwards. This upbeat book offers good news for divorced dads and counters many of the myths that paint divorcing fathers as alienated, irresponsible, or absent.
- Includes advice for overcoming limited access to children with cooperative responses and legal remedies if necessary
- Reveals how to avoid depression and feelings of guilt that can cause a divorced dad to give up and lose connection with his kids
- Offers ideas for responding to an ex-wife's remarriage, moving, unfounded accusations, and other common issues
- Contains guidance for engaging in new relationships and possibly remarriage
How to Be a Good Divorced Dad is practical and down-to-earth and offers dozens of real life examples of dads who have discovered the importance of staying involved in their children's lives.
