Praise for Still a Dad
Still a Dad offers divorced and never-married fathers what they need more than anything else: hope and practical advice to help them build and maintain relationships with their children.
– Armin Brott, author of Father for Life and host of the nationally syndicated radio show, Positive Parenting.
Still a Dad is an accessible and sensible guide for divorced fathers (and mothers too). Remembering that maintaining the father-child bond should be the most important goal after divorce is the important take-home message. Divorced dads will find not just practical advice but comfort and hope as well in this book. Highly recommended.

Men facing non-custodial divorce will find a lot of help in this book. It is simply and directly written. It’s almost like having an older brother saying, “Now listen. Here’s how it is.”

This book shines light on the very real challenges and strong emotions that divorced fathers often experience, then helps the dads learn to focus on what’s most important – what’s best for the children – and then take appropriate action. With enlightening narratives, case studies and practical insights, this is a valuable source of wisdom, sensible guidance and support.
