Single Dad Essentials

When I became a single dad more than 20 years ago, I had to do it the hard way

Single Dad Essentials book cover

The hard way was by making mistakes, asking for help, and practicing on all four of my kids. I wrote Single Dad Essentials so that your way as a single father wouldn’t have to be quite so hard. This is the book I wish I could have found back then.

I wrote Single Dad Essentials to provide something helpful for today’s single fathers. It’s my deepest wish that you’ll find these tips, suggestions, and thoughts helpful in being the best dad you can be. I also hope it’s a resource for you to use in improving your kids’ lives and for co-parenting with your former partner.

Single Dad Essentials is here to help you all have healthier, happier, more wholesome and rewarding lives.
