Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we spoke with Shannon Carpenter about being a father of three as well as his new book the Ultimate Stay at Home Dad: Your essential manual for being an awesome full-time father. We talk to Shannon about his experiences as a dad and about how being a stay-at-home father has changed his life in so many ways.
About the Book
A practical guide for modern-day parenting geared toward stay-at-home dads, offering advice on everything from learning to cook and clean with children to dealing with mental health and relationships, with the easygoing perspective that dads can use their natural talents to parent any way that they choose.
The Ultimate Stay-at-Home Dad manual takes the best advice and wisdom from a dads’ group, and puts it into a format to help new stay-at-home fathers. Characterized by actionable and direct advice to fathers, the book takes on parenting from a father’s point of view and encourages dads to use their natural talents to become a better parent. That advice is further bolstered by an additional 57 other dads who also give advice. All this advice is framed by the author’s personal stories, which help the listener connect with the content and drives the advice home. This is a book that takes on day-to-day parenting, not just as a stay-at-home dad – working fathers could benefit from this book as much as at-home dads.
