Divorced or separated dads worry a lot
about being able to be the best fathers to their kids they
can under the stress of co- and single parenting. I realize we all worry plenty, divorced or not, but today I want to focus
on resources for the dads who are trying to do it on their own.
Because of the change in living arrangements, not being a residential parent and having to see their kids on a schedule divorced dads might think their importance to their children has suddenly diminished. This is absolutely not so.
Research supports the fact that fathers have a vital role in
the development of their childrens' self-image
and self-esteem. Being present, involved, engaged and invested in the kids in a genuine way comes through and makes a huge difference even if you only see them every other weekend or less.
I hope you find these resources helpful. If you have other links or books to add to the list, please let me know in the comments!
