Publisher's Summary

For years, we had theories. Now we have answers. We had theories about how to best raise a child whose mom and dad do not live together. Now we have answers based on the real-life experiences of tens of thousands of children. First, Dr. Warren Farrell analyzed more than 200 scientific studies for his book Father and Child Reunion. Then, for The Best Interests of the Child audio, he personally rewrote the highlights of Father and Child Reunion in dialogue form, as if you were having a conversation with him.

Since, Dr. Farrell was chosen by the Financial Times as one of the top 100 Thought Leaders in the world. The Best Interests of the Child is like hiring one of the world's top minds to help you understand what you can do for your child right now that will predict success years later. You will hear:

  • The three conditions that parents must create if a child growing up in a non-intact family is likely to do as well as a child growing up in an intact family
  • The 25 areas in which children with significant father involvement excel. Would you believe, empathy is one?
  • Exactly what fathers do that help children psychologically, socially, academically, and physically
  • Why equal father involvement predicts much less ADHD
  • Why parental alienation (e.g., bad-mouthing) is even more damaging to the child than to the alienated parent
  • If one parent has a job opportunity that will allow for the child to be in a nicer home and better school district, but it is across the country from the other parent, is moving likely to be helpful to the child?
  • Whether equally shared parenting can work In high-conflict situations

The Best Interests of the Child gives every family concrete insights as to what to do if, for example, your child doesn't like her or his teacher; is preoccupied with computer games; doesn't help around the house; talks back disrespectfully.
