3 Books to read for Wannabe Fathers

WannabeFathers Reading

From Boyhood to manhood, a man evolves into different roles. From Son to Husband and then to father and finally grandfather.

The shortest and fastest transition happens from Husband to Father. Especially in India where most couples have a first child within the first 24 months after marriage.

A prepared husband makes this transition faster. It’s advisable for husbands to find a variety of advice to help them with the transition.

The most common mistake that most men do is take advice from peers who just started their fatherhood a year or 2 before them. Remember they are also on a journey of discovery! You can take hints, but not advice.

What if there is a book which has been around for 20 years and has been constantly updated for new generations? Such books will be of great help.
