Leader of the Pack is the story of a man who had been going through life content and clue, who found himself tethered to a tornado, as his marriage descended into violence and madness. Surviving courts and cops and chaos, he (unexpectedly) ended up the only parent of five small children--from 8 years old to only 18 months--though he barely knew how to change a diaper. It is my story. In it, I tell how I went from sole breadwinner to sole parent, from a scared and unsure shell of a man to the strong, confident and spiritual person I am today; a nationally recognized spokesman for single dads and a successful business leader. My feelings are the same for single father’s everywhere. We are frustrated. We can’t be just the backup parent; the ringer sent in when Mom isn’t available.
We’re fighting for our kids and winning. Yet many voices are telling us we aren’t as capable of raising kids as a woman. But it isn’t true. We just have to learn to parent like a dad and one that isn’t half of a partnership. Where there were two parents, now there is one and we must be enough. Lives depend on it…our kid’s lives and our own lives. You can win custody, raise happy and healthy kids, have a rewarding career, and manage to have a big, fun and exiting life (and even sex) while doing so. I’ll share how I did it and how you can, too.
