Dads Do Dadly Things!

67-TruthsJune! The Month of the Fathers continues today with news of a new book about dads. It is Dads Behaving Dadly: 67 Truths, Tears and Triumphs of Modern Fatherhood by Hogan Hilling and Al Watts.

Thank you Hogan and Al for bringing us this heartfelt and much needed information. While dads for a long time have gotten lost in the “parenting shuffle” for many different reasons, thanks to you and the work that you do, that is no longer the case. Now we all know in uncertain terms that the “loving, tender, devoted, masculine spirit of fatherhood is alive and well!”

What Hogan and Al did was interview dads of all kinds – young, old, experienced, new, with difficult situations, with easy ones, and everything else in between. Throughout their work they met sensitive and capable men who were able to share their experiences. While writing this book was not easy or quick, Hogan Hilling still turns around and gives the credit to the these “courageous dads” for their trust. Mr. Hilling tells us that they are the ones who have “dispelled all the myths about men as being unwilling to share their feelings.” According to Hogan, “These dads have exceeded their expectations.”

Hogan tells us that “several dads in Part Two of the book titled ‘Breaking the Mold’ wrote stores about the ‘Mr. Mom’ stigma and title of ‘babysitter’ dads often receive.”

“Most men know how to be good fathers in the same way most women know how to be good mothers.”

– Hogan Hilling, Author

My personal thanks go to the authors for educating us all that fathers are not “substitute moms.”
