Raising a Father
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Raising a Father. All opinions are 100% mine.
I watched the YouTube trailer on a book called Raising a Father, written by Arjun Sen. As a stay-at-home mom, with a mommy blog, I focus a lot on mommies and motherhood, including the challenges we face and the memories we make. However, I feel that little attention is given to the fathers in the picture, to which much of this is made possible. Many dads get up early, go to work, and are away from their families most of the day. How does a dad learn to be a dad? How much time does he get to spend with his kids? How does he learn to balance work and fatherhood?
My impressions of the book, Raising a Father, are good ones and I would like to read it sometime in the future. The book is about a dad – Arjun Sen – who has a beautiful daughter named Raka. When Raka was little, Sen worked in the corporate world. A friend, who he felt was wise and successful, gave him a bit of advice that changed his life. His friend advised him that there were “smaller sacrifices in life” to make to “achieve bigger glories.” It was clear to Sen that he was referring to him putting career first and fatherhood second. Sen wanted both success and fatherhood.
In his book, Sen talks about taking responsiblity in one’s relationships and how to take measure of your relationships. His daughter, Raka, inspired him to be a better dad and make a change in his life. Check out his book today!
