The National Center for Fathering surveyed four thousand effective fathers and discovered seven characteristics they share: commitment, knowing their child, consistency, protecting and providing, loving their child's mother, active listening, and spiritual equipping. Narrated with measured enthusiasm, the program features insights that will provoke soul-searching about the way fathers regard and care for their children. Avoiding intellectualization and moralizing about parenting, it boils the research findings down to an approach that anyone can implement. Even better, there is not the chest-beating, paternalistic focus one sees in some men's family movements. This production is about investing in the individual lives of our children with all our hearts, energy, and self-discipline. A useful lesson that all fathers should hear. T.W.
