Raising a Child with Disabilities

by Steve Harris

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
A book to guide and encourage fathers of children (from newborn to adult) who are disabled, by providing practical support in areas of emotional life, self-care, marriage and family, and work-life balance.
Dads Like Us offers practical support and honest encouragement to fathers of children who are disabled. Written in a personal and straight-forward style by a father who has walked that road with his two sons, this brief book guides dads through the maze of emotions, experiences, and encounters unique to this parenting-role. "A parade of doctors, nurses, teachers, social workers, specialists and others will march into your child's life—and yours," says the author. This book helps dads manage that parade and more, including chapters on marriage, family, work-life balance, advocacy, and stress-management.
