I read his first book The Nurturing Father at a time when I was acutely aware of my lack of fathering ability. My mother died before I turned 12, my father died when I was 35 and my four children were under the age of 12, all my grandparents deceased. I had nowhere to go for insight or advice. Both these books became reference material, study guides, and ultimately paradigm shifts for me. As a gift to my son when he began his journey as a young father it made him functional where he otherwise would have floundered. For the husband who is seeking to transcend the limitations of his upbringing Pruett's findings are essential reading.
The most illuminating concept I gleaned from this book in particular (against the backdrop of his previous one) is how vital the transference of bonding is from mother to father beginning when a child is born. If this does not take place, the relationship between husband and wife, and parent to child is unlikely to develop in full potential. From what I have observed of Western parenting (over a half century), neither husbands nor wives are fully cognizant of the influence the mother has in the transition of a man from husband to father. It is a process that is really a journey, both for the husband and the wife. It is true that fathers who are facilitated by their wives to bond with their child, rarely abuse them.Read more ›
