After three decades of being a father, Clyde Edgerton-with four kids ranging in age from six to 30-is supremely qualified to give tips to dads of all ages. His fathering advice, pre-birth through schooling, involves plenty of his trademark humor, but also sound guidance enhanced by his training and experience as an educator.

Papa Edgerton suggests that on occasion a father might forego reading and just point to the pictures of dogs and cats in baby books, and also that he might place a blanket on the lawn, lie on his back with the whole family, and watch Sky Television. Edgerton’s humorous and helpful counsel will guide new parents on interacting with in-laws and coping with sleep deprivation, while also providing strategies for recovery after you’ve cursed in front of a mimicking baby.

“If you don’t feel apprehensive just before your first child is to arrive, you are abnormal,” writes Edgerton. Yet by way of his experience, observation, and imagination, he provides caution and pure joy in equal measure.

Reviews

With a healthy dose of humor, Edgerton covers everything from head lice to in-laws (not that the two have anything in common).
Garden and Gun
In addition to practical advice...Edgerton brings a sense of play that is often missing from the genre.
