About "It's a Guy Thing: Helping Guys Become Men, Husbands & Fathers"
We are losing a generation of men. Not to drugs, not to crime, but to fatherlessness. What we have instead is a generation of boys, raised by women, who don't know what it is to be a man, husband, or father. A compass is something that not only gives you direction but also gives you orientation in the world. When a child does not have a father, or their father is detached or absent, they lose a sense of who they are or where they are supposed to go. A child gets their nurturing from their mother and their security and identity from their father. In this generation, 75% of children are directly or indirectly affected by fatherlessness. Children from fatherless homes are five times more likely to commit suicide, ten times more likely to abuse chemical substances, and twenty times more likely to end up in prison. Being male is a matter of birth, being a man is a matter of choice. This book is designed to help you after you have made that choice!
