‘I’ve experienced all the different roles you have to play when there’s nobody else around: a parent, a dad, a father, a stand-in mum, a confidant, always a butler or maid, a teacher and, most crucially, a friend.’
In this enlightening but also very practical book, I (Roger McEwan) share the lessons I've learned from years as a solo dad.
It is not a self-help book. But amidst the rich, always fascinating, often hilarious experiences of my times with my two children are dozens and dozens of useful pieces of advice for parents – from developing a great relationship with your ex (if you can) to letting the children pick the clothes they want to wear, teaching them to cook, and acknowledging that changing a toilet roll is too complex for anyone under the age of eighteen to understand.
