The Heart of a Father by Dr. Ken Canfield



How You Can Become a Dad of Destiny


Every father has a hidden longing to see his children surpass him. To help him achieve this, Ken Canfield, the founder of the National Center for Fathering, offers a three-part plan. First, a father should resolve his relationship with his own father in order to effectively build a relationship with his children. Next, he should take steps to improve the way he connects with his children through four key dimensions of fathering: Involvement, Awareness, Consistency, and Nurturance. Then he should take a longer range view and plan specifically for a lifetime of involved fathering. From being a new father to being a grandfather, dads face challenges at each stage of their life. With the long-range perspective this book provides, fathers can anticipate and prepare for the changing situations they'll face. Based on years of careful research involving thousands of fathers, this book is a solid reference tool for dads.
