You hold your son in your arms for the first time. As you look at his perfect hands and fingers, he grabs onto your thumb. You smile as tears start streaming down your face. You can’t believe this moment has come; the moment you can finally hold your son in your arms. “I will never let you go,” you start to tell your son, “I promise, I will always be there for you. I promise to do whatever I can to help you succeed.”
In those moments you don’t think about all the obstacles that are in your path. You simply think about the love you have for your son. This is a great way to start your journey as a father – full of love. After all, it is one of the most important factors when it comes to raising your child.
But, the truth is, you don’t just want to raise a child. You want to raise your son into a man. You don’t want him to become like so many people in today’s generation – a boy who is living as an adult. You want him to be a man, someone who will take care of his family, work hard, keep God close, and respect everyone. You want him to be a leader in his community and be an honest person.
This book will help you accomplish these goals. The purpose of this book is to give you the knowledge you need in order to raise a man into manhood and not a boy into adulthood.
