Bestselling parenting author Rob Kemp (The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide) delivers the ultimate guide to navigating your child's life milestones (0 months to 50 years) and offers advice on how fathers can best play a lasting, impactful or at least vaguely useful role in it.

Kids don't come with an instruction manual. (Not that most men would read one if they did).

Instead they're shaped by life-forming milestones and learn-as-they-go mistakes which you, as modern, responsible fathers must be there to help them deal with, solve or at least advise upon pretty much from their birth until you've drawn your last breath.

This book will give you a head's up on all the defining moments you are guaranteed to experience as a parent. It'll warn you when your life is going to take a change of course, how your child is going to influence the choices you make and give you some practical, knowing, sanity saving methods of dealing with them.

Each moment is headlined with a common scenario that dads have encountered down through generations - but will still come as a shock to you for the first time. And for every milestone moment, landmark action or parenting task to perform there's a sound advice and strategic solutions to help you cope and even discover the purported 'joys' of parenthood...
