Summary
An award-winning journalist and father of five discusses the various stages of fatherhood, revealing the profound physiological connections between children and fathers, from conception through adolescence and into adulthood--and the importance of the relationship between mothers and fathers. In the process, he challenges the legacy of Freud and mainstream views of parental attachment, and also explains how we can become better parents ourselves
Summary
The Psychology Today "About Fathers" blogger and author of Acquainted With the Night explores fatherhood from psychological, genetic and neuroscience perspectives to challenge misperceptions and demonstrate the profound impact of fathers on children's lives
