Book Description

All too often, kids today are reared by a mother and an absent father. She is doing the best she can, but she is only half of the equation. Well guys, it is time for us to MAN UP! It is time to share and learn some simple guidelines on becoming successful Dads.

If the family is weak, then society will be weak. Well boys, look around you! Every data point out there shows that the family is weak: divorce rates, abortion rates, birth rates, infidelity rates, and more.

Much can be learned from successful parents, successful marriages, and the fact that kids benefit when they have a mother and a father who are doing their best to raise a family. It’s time to MAN UP!
