Man vs. Child: One Dad's Guide to the Weirdness of Parenting

Author(s): Doug Moe


Mums have hundreds of parenting advice books willing to tackle the more cringe-inducing questions of parenthood. But what about books for the other half of the equation: the dads? Man vs. Child is here to ask and answer the uncomfortable questions dads have about the weirdness of parenting. But while most modern fathering guides centre on men's oafish parental failings, this essential guide for first-time dads forgoes condescension in favour of fresh and irreverent wit. From caring for a newborn to dealing with a kid on the verge of adolescence, author Doug Moe breaks fatherhood down into survival lessons like "Time to Decide About God" and quizzes that ask dads to reflect on hilarious parenting questions like "Is My Child Too Annoying for This Restaurant?" Balancing relatable humour with heartfelt advice, Man vs. Child will appeal to any dad looking for both laughs and real guidance from a man who has had--and survived--these experiences himself.
