The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads

If you are thinking of becoming a gay dad ─ or if you are already a gay dad ─ this book is for you! Are you ready to have kids? More and more gay men are turning to adoption and surrogacy to start their own families. An estimated two million American LBGTQ people would like to adopt and an estimated 65,000 adopted children are living with a gay parent. In 2016, The Chicago Tribune reported that 10 to 20 percent of donor eggs went to gay men expanding their families via surrogacy, and in many places the numbers were up 50 percent from the previous five years. Gay parenting: Having a kid is like coming out all over again, on a daily basis, especial if you have an infant. Was coming out stressful for you? It’s about to get more intense and you will have a child watching your every move and listening to your every word. If you stutter or pause, they may pick up on your discomfort and could start to feel like something is wrong about their family unit. The Ultimate Guide For Gay Dads is jam packed with parenting tips and advice to help you build confidence and become the awesome gay dad you were meant to be! How Is This Parenting Guide Different From Others? Unlike other parenting books that have whole chapters focusing on things specifically related to mothers (such as how to get the perfect latch when breastfeeding), this parenting book replaces those sections with things relevant to gay dads. It covers topics like how to find LGBT friendly pediatricians, how to find LGBT friendly schools, how to childproof your home with style, how to answer awkward and prying questions about your family from strangers, examples for what two-dad families can do on Mother’s Day, and much more. The book also includes parenting tips and advice from pediatricians, school educators, lawyers, and other same-sex parents. Top LGBT parenting expert: Bestselling author Eric Rosswood covers every aspect of fatherhood for gay men in this essential guide to growing your family in the post-DOMA era. He is a major influencer on social media with over 100,000 followers on Twitter alone, as well as thousands on other platforms. Exploring LGBTQ issues: Rosswood is an in-demand authority and commentator on LGBTQ issues, including civil rights, parenting, marriage and politics. The author has been featured in major media including The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, CBS News, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, Yahoo! News, AOL News, NY Daily News, IB Times, and regional LGBTQ press.

First Time Father

In this new edition of First-time Father, authors Graeme Russell and Tony White describe how the desire of new fathers to be more actively involved with the day-to-day raising of their children has increased over the last five years. Men are now more aware of the impact their involvement has on their children's development, right from the start. They want to know what is going on at each stage of the pregnancy, what their role in childbirth is, and how to share the parenting with their partner after the birth. They also are increasingly looking for ways to combine their working lives with their family lives. From their 40 years of research and practical work with new fathers, the authors cover the five most common questions contemporary dads are asking: one, how important am I as the father? Two, what does my child need exactly? Three, how can I connect with my new baby. . . and stay connected through their lives? Four, how can my partner and I work as a team? Five, how can I include my child in all aspects of my life? This practical and down-to-earth book offers solutions and options answering these questions and many more. Most importantly, it recognizes that men, increasingly, want a satisfying home life as well as a successful career and to be a vital part of their children's lives.
