The Modern Mom’s Guide to Dads Reveals Ten Secrets to Strengthening a Marriage

“A must-read for everyone with kids!” – Dr. Laura Schlessinger

 

New moms are frequently confused by their husband’s behavior after the birth of a child. What do they really think about being a father?

Why has this new life they created together altered their marital relationship?

Authors Hogan Hilling and Jesse Jayne Rutherford offer their own unique, qualified perspectives in The Modern Moms Guide to Dads:

Ten Secrets Your Husband Won’t Tell You (Cumberland House, ISBN-13: 978-1-58182-606-7, $16.95, October 2007).

Hilling has been conducting marital enrichment workshops for fathers for 15 years (and moms for five years) at conferences, hospitals, and corporations across the country, and he has heard it all – from frustrated women and men.

The Modern Mom’s Guide to Dads is a “parenting relationship” book, full of thoughtful insights about what new dads are thinking, and how wives can get their husbands more involved in the kids’ lives and the household without nagging or manipulative tactics.

In each chapter, there are stories from real dads’ lives that shed light on some of the secrets they try to hide from their wives; quotes from fathers about their feelings; helpful strategies; and a section called “And a Mom Wants to Know,” Rutherford’s input as modern-day mother and wife.

Whether you’re planning, expecting, or raising a family, The Modern Mom’s Guide to Dads offers keen insights into what your husband really thinks about pregnancy, parenting, and marriage!

Hogan Hilling is the founder of Proud Dads, Inc., through which he develops and conducts expectant father classes for hospitals in Southern California and conducts workshops for mothers on fathering issues through the United States.

The author of The Man Who Would Be Dad and the stay-at-home father of three boys, he is the recipient of a California “Courage to Care” Award and has made multiple television appearances. He and his wife, Tina, live in Newport Beach, California.
