First Time Dad can bless all parents, not just beginners at parenting. The book works as an encouraging checklist of what parents are doing right. Or even if your children are older, you’ll find ideas for what might be improved.
Fuller writes clearly, honestly and warmly about the joys and difficulties of parenting. He gives statistics on the common types of damage to children who lack a good father role model.
His twelve chapters include a definition of fatherhood, the importance of right priorities, about loving your wife most of all and how to do so. The book includes charts on the differences between boys and girls and also lists ideas on how to love a child. The author discusses ways to help your child succeed and how to open your child’s heart to God and other people. Spiritual formation is rightly discussed as the most vital part of parenthood.
The book contains anecdotes and appropriate Biblical instructions that add interest. Each chapter ends with suggested resources for further information.
