DAD: Untold stories of Fatherhood, Love, Mental Health and Masculinity

by Elliott Rae (Editor) - £18.99  MusicFootballFatherhood (2021)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781527290242 | ISBN 10: 1527290247

DAD is a deeply moving and inspiring collection of stories that represent the diversity of modern fatherhood and seeks to start a conversation that challenges the traditions associated with masculinity.
Including 20 powerful and defiant stories about postnatal depression, becoming a new dad during the pandemic, miscarriage, widowhood, stillbirth, co-parenting, childbirth trauma, work-life balance, new dads at work, shared parental leave, being a stay-at-home dad, gay fatherhood and surrogacy, being a stepdad, black fatherhood, raising a child of dual heritage, being a single dad, faith and fatherhood, raising a child with autism, gender stereotypes and more.
This is a ground-breaking book. A movement. Never before have a group of men come together to bare their souls and speak so openly and honestly about their fatherhood experiences. This book aims to encourage better dialogue between colleagues, friends, and especially within families; between husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, dads and children. We know that men and dads don't always have the space to speak openly about their experiences. We believe DAD can change the world and move forward the conversations around fatherhood, masculinity, mental health and gender equality.
DAD has a diverse range of contributors who represent all aspects of race, class, age, and sexuality. Each dad has written in their raw and authentic voice. This was extremely important to make sure underrepresented voices, ordinary people whose stories often go unheard, are now listened to and part of the mainstream conversation. These are ordinary men, being extraordinary by sharing their story with the world.
Our contributors have come together, from different walks of life, because they believe in the shared purpose, vision and movement. Each chapter will take you on a journey; you will be immersed in that dad's world. Underlying each of the dad's stories is a persistent and driving force of love, defiance, humility and strength to be the best fathers they can be for their families.
Our call to action is for more open conversations, like the ones you are about to read.
