From Library Journal
KlatteAa psychotherapist, social worker, and divorced father of two grown daughters who lived with their motherAoffers solid advice and encouragement to men facing life apart from their children. Klatte begins by advising fathers to take care of themselves, including dealing with anger and depressionAgood advice for anyone coping with a major life change. He stresses the importance of staying involved with your children despite personal difficulties or the challenges of working with their mother. Later sections deal with cooperation, using the court system, developing parenting skills, and finding support groups. This is an especially useful book because Klatte strives hard to maintain a neutral position on many issues. His is not a strident attack on mothers or courts or unfairness; rather, he seeks to help fathers "get along" for the sake of their children and for their own benefit. Highly recommended for public and community college libraries.AKay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD

...solid advice and encouragement to men facing life apart from their children...Highly recommended for public and community college libraries. -- Kay Brodie, Library Journal, March, 1999
William C. Klatte's "Live-Away Dads" is a reassuring and practical guide for divorced fathers who want to remain actively involved parents. A social worker and psychotherapist who has been a custody advisor to the Illinois Courts, Klatte rightly counsels fathers to come to terms with their emotions, a crucial first step toward diffusing conflict. Next, he expertly leads fathers through the stages of setting up visitation, cooperating with mothers to improve communication, and working on parenting skills. -- Fred Hamerman, Chicago Tribune, June 20, 1999
