Review

This book, however, also includes the “lived experience” of a
contemporary father’s day-to-day role—in a way that is laced with
both reality and humor. Its simple theories, such as the “theory of
relative worry,” the “theory of relative torment,” and the
“theory of relative salvation,” compare the interpersonal
relationships between fathers, mothers and children.

As the author shared his thoughts about his many varied activities of
being “a stay at home father,” this reviewer laughed and reflected
on his own parenting experiences.

From Here to Paternity balances the joys of parenting with its hectic,
often routine, aspects, and Teitel portrays this in a most compelling
and humorous way.
