I had the privilege to review this book before publication and I was left with a feeling of beautiful connection to my father and the wisdom he shared with me. The author addresses the challenging topics and roots his responses in love for his son in a way that reads like a love letter from Father to Son. – Amazon Review
How would you impart advice to your child if you were no longer here?
How would you guide and advise them if you suddenly were no longer around?
What would you tell them, to keep him on the straight and narrow?
When we become fathers, we often change as men, becoming more responsible and looking for every opportunity to direct and steer our children in the right direction. This is especially important when we become the father of a son and want to ensure that he grows to become a dependable adult who can be relied upon to always do the right thing.
This book, By the Way, has been written by a father who had a fear that if he was no longer there for his son, how would he ensure he was able to still give him the advice that is needed and contains advice like:
- Understanding who he is as a person
- The importance of family
- Where religion plays its part
- Physical, mental, and social wellbeing
- The dangers presented by drugs, alcohol, and guns
- Racism and prejudice
- Dealing with the police as an African-American
- And more…
Passing on good advice to their son so that they live fruitful and successful lives is what every father should aim to do. By reading the ideas contained within By the Way you can either follow the book to the letter or tweak it for your own circumstances.
Whatever way you do it, you’ll be glad you took the opportunity now and gave yourself some peace of mind for the future.
