Great tool for first time dads!

This audiobook is perfect for any new dad. There is no one-size-fits-all model to parenting, but Christian Bansal goes through all the different motions of becoming a first-time dad as well as providing practical advice and tips to help you through difficult times. I'm not a Dad but I would highly recommend any man wanting to start a family to listen to this audiobook because it can be really tough at times.

An excellent parenting tool

They say there is no perfect parenting book, but The Road to Fatherhood is definitely one to add to your parenting toolbox. I found much sound advice and important information within this audiobook. It had me turning inwards to explore how my own experiences will influence how I intervene with my kids and impact my children' development. Even though this is directed towards dads, I highly recommend a listen to any and all parents out there,

Decent book for new daddies!

This book is a complete guide for all daddies especially the new ones who aim to be good fathers and raise their kids in the right way, I learned many new prospects about parenting and the way stress should be managed in parenting. Fatherhood is not easy therefore men should acquire some skills and adopt a new parenting mindset before having a newborn. and this book is giving sufficient knowledge for this purpose.

I Wish I Had This Book Before I Became A Father!

Looking back now, having this book would have made me more aware of who I am and the areas of my life that need improvement. This book would have helped me during my time as a father when my kids were babies and toddlers. However, it's never too late to be the best father that I can be. This book helped me believe that.

Great for dads!

My partner and I enjoyed this audio book. I particularly liked part 3 where it talks about conscious parenting, dysfunctional parenting, stress, burn out, etc. it went in depth on all of these topics and for me these are huge triggers. There are a lot added stress in life and then being a new parent on top of it…well I can relate. Good book for dads but as a mom I enjoyed it too.

Being a good father is key!

This book is super helpful to all dads or will be sooner. I believe even Moms can learn a lot from here. As a dad of three, I learned a lot from this book that I can start practicing right away. I also enjoyed the narrator, who took me through the book without being bored.

Not your average parenting book

I was pleasantly surprised by this book! This was bought as a gift to my brother-in-law who has been a nervous wreck since finding out about my sister's pregnancy. As a first-time Dad, this book has given him a huge boost of confidence to be a father that is serious about their child's well-being and building a strong relationship with their child. I love the chapter on mindful parenting which I think is crucial in this day and age. I would say that is book shouldn't be limited to just first-time Dads but any father that wants help raising their children with more awareness and consciousness.

Simple, easy to breakdown advice. Let’s hope the real thing is as simple 😅

My fiancé is due soon so I’m reading/watching as much as I can. Christian advises so much good info throughout this book, it’s difficult to specify the singular best piece of advice. However, I found conscious parenting particularly pertinent as it’s important to let your child grow and find their own way in life while you remain their guardian. These are the affirmations I need to hear and ones I’ll struggle with. Thanks for writing this book!

Well done

A very useful book with lots of tips for the men who are expecting to have a baby or already have kids.

The audiobook has guidelines for fathers on how they can raise better kids, kids with more confidence and strong character. I have two boys and I can clearly say that the parents especially fathers who are concerned about their kids and lean and consumes parenting content will have more successful kids later. I highly advise parents to take parenting very seriously.

Helped me be the best dad I could be!

After my wife got pregnant both of us felt so in over our heads. We had no idea what to expect and how to be good parents. We loaded up on audiobooks, podcasts, binged articles, youtube videos, you name it. I must say that this book gave me a very comprehensive view of what to expect, and how to excel as a new dad.

I'm super happy with my purchase and I highly recommend this book to all expecting or new dads. Easily 5 stars!
