First-time fathers are as worried about being terrible at their terrifying new jobs as moms are, and in recent years, the playbook has changed. Old Dads could pull a Don Draper—send money to the wife and kids and generally phone it in from afar. But New Dads play dress-up, bake, and diaper, all while trying to keep it together, and yet no one has ever told them how to do it. Man vs. Child is a funny, fresh take on the parenting guide, written from the perspective of a dad who has had—and survived—these experiences himself, starting from the moment you have to give up boozy brunch for playtime.
While most modern fathering guides center on men’s oafish parental failings, Man vs. Child forgoes condescension in favor of fresh and irreverent wit and offers indispensable advice for New Dads. Alongside hilariously evocative illustrations, the book tackles such serious dilemmas as:
- Is It Okay to Bring My Baby to a Bar?
- Help, My Kid is a Tiny Hoarder
- How to Expose Your Kid to Art without Freaking Them Out
- Your Kid’s Weird Friends
- Playing Dress-Up with Dignity
From supporting your pregnant partner to figuring out what your life is worth when your kid doesn’t need you anymore, Man vs. Child is there every step of the way, balancing relatable humor with heartfelt advice.Buy tickets/get more info now
