I guess more than anything, I kept going because I don’t believe that “nobody seems to care about being a good dad anymore.” I think the people following this blog are proof enough of that. Every day I am floored by the amazing things I hear about other dads. What they do for their kids. How much they love their kids. What kind of odds they each overcome to become better parents. And so, I made the decision to give everything I have to bring this book to you.
I don’t tell you all this to make myself look good (in fact, I’m certain some will think I’m an idiot for doing so). I don’t tell you this to stroke my ego, to feel like the cat’s meow, or to ask for book sales. I tell you for one reason only. I want you to know how important this book is to me. I want you to know just how much I believe in its message. I want you to understand the place where it comes from.
In fact, I feel so strongly the need to share it with others that starting tomorrow and going through March, I will be sharing the entire book here on Single Dad Laughing, one chapter at a time.
And even though I’m doing that, I would also ask you to please, if you believe you could find any strength or motivation in reading it, buy a copy of the book. If you believe it could be beneficial to someone else, buy a copy of the book. If you want to read the later chapters before March of 2012, buy a copy of the book. If you just wanna do me a big favor, buy a copy of the book. I have published it in paperback, hardcover (more expensive when self-publishing), and eBook (Kindle now, Nook and iBook very soon). Father’s Day is next month, and I believe that you couldn’t give the fathers in your life a better gift, no matter how old their kids are. And, even more importantly, I don’t believe you could give the children in your life a better gift than an even awesomer dad.
I sincerely hope that every parent will read this book. While written for dads, the message truly applies to both sides. While discussing good fatherhood, it also discusses many of the dynamics that need to exist between mothers and fathers. For that perspective alone, I hope that every mother will read it or follow along as I share the chapters here on Single Dad Laughing.
I wrote this book with the intention that every chapter could stand on its own. I wanted any parent to be able to pull it off the shelf and go straight for the motivation they need at the moment.
As you get into the book, you’ll quickly figure out that my goal wasn’t to write a book exploring the “hows” of parenting. Instead, my focus was on the more deeply motivating “whys” of parenting. This book is neither sad nor overly intense. It is direct and it is also humorous at times. It is non-judging and it is motivational. More than anything, it is a celebration of fatherhood; of parenthood; of childhood.
To buy the book, please visit The Real Dad Rules Official Website. You’ll find all the information you need, including links to purchase it, download it onto your Kindle/Nook, etc. You can also view the front/back cover, the table of contents, order signed copies, and read more about the book in general.
And if you really want to hook this dad blogger up… please share each chapter that I post here on SDL to your own Facebook and Twitter (and wherever else).
And with that, I offer you The Real Dad Rules. The Everyday Steps, Secrets, and Satisfactions of Being a Real Dad, Every Day. Enjoy. And I love you all. Oodles and gobs. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me to make this book possible. Thank you for the perspective you’ve given me. Thank you for the encouragement and kind words. Thank you for being here. Thank you for listening and reading. We have a world class group of parents here.
