Everything you need to know to be the best father you can be.

Everything you need to know to be the best father you can be.

Ian Grant is a parenting and relationship guru who focuses on bringing families together. He has written about bringing up girls, boys, working out problems in families, and even how to get the best out of your marriage. But the subject of fathers and children is something dear to his heart.

Today's fathers have much to deal with. When is taking an interest in your child's life too much? How do you deal with social networking such as Twitter and Facebook? How do you be the best father to your child when you don't live in the family home? How do you navigate a relationship with your daughter and/or your son, and stay close and loving to their mother?

In Ian Grant's characteristic straight-talking way he offers advice, tips and strategies that are easy to follow and that make sense. From being a hero to your kids to communication to discipline, this is the one book you'll ever need to be a great dad.
