Stop, Look and Listen, Single Fathers/Dads.
This guide, written for single fathers, is designed to give a quick, easy reference for parenting skills. The foreword states that the job of fathers is to know what information children need to make correct decisions in their lives and how to get the material to them in time for them to make the best "shot" and to win the game of life. Philosophy and information are presented for the following topics: a look at the past; guidelines for fathers; communication; discipline; crisis prevention; house rules; being a winner; school; college age children; time management; budgets; goals; home work for fathers; family members as resources; creating a memory; being accountable; honesty; childrens' health; rules for harmony; gifts and wish lists; running a home; kitchen; housework; and arranging the day. Information is also included about how the book will be marketed. A glossary of terms is provided. Fifty ways to say "no" to drugs are listed. Finally, sample forms are provided for assistance in goal-setting, and providing information for the babysitter. (LLL)
