"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 mom, a confidant, always a butler or maid, a teacher and, most crucially, a friend."
In this enlightening, but also very practical, audiobook, Roger McEwan shares the lessons he's learned from years as a solo dad.
It is not, he insists, a self-help guide. But among 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 possible to letting the children pick the clothes they want to wear. Advice also includes teaching your children how to cook and to acknowledge that changing a toilet roll is too complex for anyone under the age of 18 to understand.
