Canfield's three-part blueprint addresses:
*A father's past. A father should resolve his relationship with his own father in order to effectively build a relationship with his children.
*How to make a dad's house a home. Canfield explains how to build the four "walls" or dimensions, of fathering: involvement, consistency, awareness, nurturance.
*A plan for the future. From being a new father to being a grandfather, dads face challenges at each stage of their life. With the long-range perspective this book provides, fathers can anticipate and prepare for the changing situations they'll face.
Never underestimate your power as a father. You undoubtedly will influence and shape future generations.
