If you know us at all, or have ever attended one of our Workshops for Women's events, you know we are big on great books. Dads Matter by Bob Hazleton is my new favorite.
Why a book about Dads when we are so all about women? What we are really about is improving the lives of women, empowering them to create lives of purpose, meaning, joy and abundance. And having our men understand the value they bring as "Dad" to our children, our relationships and our world therefore supports all of our goals.
Dads Matter challenged me in a gentle and positive way. It allowed me to revisit things from my training as a coach, relook at my own parenting skills and areas for improvement, and opened a window to revisit my own relationship with my father who passed away when I was 18.
I am a huge fan of Bob Hazleton. I actually met Bob many years ago at a support group meeting, during a difficult time in my life as a single mother with a struggling teen. With a look - Bob conveyed his care, and managed to stop my ramblings and help me get centered and realize what insanity I as "mom" was bringing to the picture. Later it was a huge surprise and wonderful gift to have him be one of my trainers at the Resource Realizations Coaching academy, and to staff parenting seminars with him for other parents of troubled teens.
And just to make the loop complete - this book was laid out by Workshops for Women graduate Jennifer Omner, President of All Publications. Her care and dedication to the project are obvious and beautifully executed. (www.allpublications.com)
So yes, I am biased. However this is truly one of those great books with the power to change and inspire our lives. Here is an opportunity to change the world for the better - invest in a wonderful gift for yourself in your own evolution - and make a brilliant gift to the Dads or soon-to-be-Dads in your world.
