Joshua McDowell is a single father on a mission. He believes being a parent is the most rewarding experience in the world. For that reason, he wants you to help him change the family court system. Each year, millions of children grow up in fatherless homes, resulting in teen pregnancies, school dropouts, depression, and suicides. In Accidental Dad, McDowell talks frankly about his own fatherless childhood.
Each child wants, needs, and deserves to grow up with a strong relationship with both parents, but those parents have to be there for the right reasons. McDowell is not an expert in conventional terms, with qualifying degrees to counsel others, but he knows how it felt to grow up without his father, and he also knows how it feels for a single father to have to deal with the court system that can make a father feel worthless.
He worked on this book for several years and eventually sought a professional writer to help him bring his experiences and reflections to readers. He shares firsthand information about our family courts to provide a clear understanding of the bias in courts across this country against fathers who want custody of their children.
Joshua McDowell is handing us all a challenge. Help McDowell change the world, and help bring loving, caring, good fathers back to the head of household! This book will even help those young boys who are thinking about having sex to wait. They certainly can learn from the author's mistakes of having a baby to young and dealing with the court system.
author_bio: Contrary to popular belief, single fathers are getting the short end of the stick. I dedicate this book to all single fathers who truly love their children and want to be a major part of their lives. My son is my life. Without a doubt, I would give up my life for him. That's how much I love him, yet there were days in court when I would get so frustrated, so angry, and so tired of battling the bias against fathers - against me - that I was almost willing to walk away from it all. Fortunately I didn't, and neither should you. Never give up hope.
I also dedicate this book to my smart and wonderful son. I love you, my buddy boy, with all my heart. I want you to learn from my mistakes. I tell my story here for you as well as for other dads, for family court judges, and for those lawyers and social workers who sincerely care for families and want to make the lives of children living with single moms a whole lot better.
