The Single Dad's Guide to the Galaxy: Parenting in the real world

Palmerston Press via PublishDrive

‘I’ve experienced all the different roles you have to play when there’s nobody else around: a parent, a dad, a father, a stand-in mum, a confidant, always a butler or maid, a teacher and, most crucially, a friend.’

In this enlightening but also very practical book, Roger McEwan shares the lessons he’s learned from years as a solo dad.

It is not, he insists, a self-help book. But amidst the rich, always fascinating, often hilarious experiences of his times with his two children are dozens and dozens of useful pieces of advice for parents – from developing a great relationship with your ex (if you can) to letting the children pick the clothes they want to wear, teaching them to cook, and acknowledging that changing a toilet roll is too complex for anyone under the age of eighteen to understand.

About the author

Roger McEwan was lucky to be made redundant from his corporate career in 2001 when his son was one and his daughter a small bump. He started a small consulting firm, just himself, and this allowed him to truly achieve work-life balance, enabling him to spend many valuable hours with his children as they grew. His world lurched once again when his children were six and eight and he found himself a single dad sharing care of his children with his ex-wife. This book is the result of his journey as a single dad raising his two wonderful, challenging children. Roger has a PhD in management and still runs his own consulting business. Has a part-time role with the local district health board, is writing a management book with a colleague he met during his studies, is collecting material for a sequel to this book, and teaches on the Massey University MBA programme. Most importantly he is a dad, father, parent, teacher and friend to his two children now aged 17 and 15.
