Fathers, Children, Family & Community - A Programming Manual for
Counsellors, Parent Educators and Family Advocates
Glenn Cheriton has just finished publishing my book, and I am
grateful and proud of all the work that both of us have put into it. I
hope that it is made use of by professionals and lay persons alike and
that in some way, however big or small, it will add to the pot, and make
a difference. As a counsellor, I have contributed to the
"professional pot" in an attempt to educate other
professionals regarding the injustices some of us here have faced at one
time or another.
Please find a way to get your bookstore, library, MLA, MP, Lawyer,
advocate or counselling agency to purchase this book. The title is: "Fathers,
Children, Family & Community - A Programming Manual for Counsellors,
Parent Educators and Family Advocates". The ISBN # is
0-88970-105-9. The price is $16.95 and is available in
The book contains Canadian data that supports shared-parenting. It
also has a parenting plan, guidelines for sharing the children
(frequency of going from moms house to dads house IE every 3 days or
weekly etc.) according to their age. It also contains a tool to help
quantify father's level of involvement, in lieu of "primary care
giver" status. There is also a Fathering Program for those who want
to start this type of program in their community.
I hope this book helps us fathers, as there didn't seem to be
anything out there when I needed it several years ago and professionals
still need now I find that there are many professionals who need this
education/information). Hopefully, this book addresses most of the major
issues that dads face when their families are separating or divorcing.
This book is dedicated to all those children and parents who lost
their families, heritage and culture to separation and divorce.
