by George Bradt
The thrill of fatherhood is an exhilarating journey filled with the unexpected. Although a mother’s love is unconditional, the love a father has for his child is eternal.
When your life may be chaotic, your father will never blatantly criticize your choices or actions; instead, he will assist you through the challenges you may be experiencing.
To help us prepare for the following years of our lives, author George Bradt has crafted a book titled Back-To-School Chats: Advice from Fathers to their Sons.
It’s a well-written book that contains advice from a wide range of sources and real-life experiences, as well as the author’s advice from his own interactions with his son, Peter Bradt, when he was growing up.
This book is divided into eight sections, each with guidance on a different corresponding theme: repercussions, appreciation, priorities, goals, growth, flaws, individuality, and life in general.
It’s a harrowing yet inevitable fact to see your child coming of age and make their own choices as an adult. Decisions must be taken, and the resulting consequences must be faced. Having a father’s words of wisdom may go a long way in helping us find our place in the world. In a stroke of luck, this book provides just that.
In Back-To-School Chats, the goal is to compile a wide variety of perspectives into a single, easily digestible collection. This book is perfect for sons (and daughters) who want to hear from their fathers about life lessons they can use in any ordeal. Using raw and honest experiences, it imparts wisdom to its audience through a fatherly conversation.
On the prowl for some kind of sign? Asking for advice? When things don’t seem to be falling into place, you can always turn to your father for guidance. No father wants to see his children suffer. If you need him, all you have to do is ask.
