About the Book
Perhaps the most powerful influence in the world is that of a dad on his child. Baseball gloves, dirty diapers, tiny little hands, first days of school, daddy-daughter dances, and learner’s permits… and so much more! There’s no way you can be ready for it all, but this is when you need to get a bit of a head start…
First Time Dad by Focus on the Family ministry veteran (and father of 6) John Fuller lets you in on the stuff you really need to know… because in just a few months or weeks or days, your life is going to change–forever.
- Set good priorities.
- Break bad habits and/or family patterns.
- Recognize and recover from some common fathering mistakes.
- Know that your words have immense power.
- And learn how to cultivate a lasting parent-child relationship.
So, instead of wondering “oh man, oh man, oh man… what am I going to do now?” for 9 months… read this short book (plus it’s pretty fun too) and get excited!

My Take on the Book
I can honestly say that being a first-time dad can be a VERY scary thought, especially if you were an only child growing up like I was. When you don’t have much experience with kids (let alone your own) you can use any help that you can get. I know that for me, I found myself reading book after book trying to find the right answers, and many were very helpful, in shaping some of the things that I do as a father!
This book would have been a great book to have read prior to the birth of my first child. It is filled with amazing tidbits of knowledge and practical advice. It takes what your wife is going through and helps you as a father-to-be to understand what this means to you and hat you can do to help or prepare even better. At the same time, it gives you much sage advice about things that you should be doing as a new father to take care of yourself as well as your wife and child.
The book does a great job at capturing the feelins that you feel as a new father and putting them into words. It also helps a new father to know that they in fact are not alone and that what they are feeling through this process is completely normal!
