Publisher's Description

Every dad wants to be a great dad. But what does it take to build a great dad? What raw materials does one need? And how do you put them all together?

Designed for the do-it-yourselfer in every man, Project Dad is a humorous, biblically based guidebook to becoming a great dad. With short, entertaining chapters that cover five key components, this guidebook encourages fathers to raise their children with a renewed sense of purpose in order to positively impact them in their adult life. Cartmell shows dads that the way they look at, talk to, connect with, act toward, and lead their children is what separates a good dad from a great dad.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for individual or group study.

Author Bio

Todd Cartmell is a licensed clinical psychologist and a father of two. He is in full-time private practice in Wheaton, Illinois, where he works exclusively with children and adolescents. He lives in Illinois with his family.

In Project Dad, Todd Cartmell proves that parenthood can be entertaining and invigorating, even if challenging and surprising. Drawing on years of personal experience both as a dad and a youth leader, Cartmell uses endless amounts of humor in discussing the long-lasting impact a man of quality can have on his children. There are at least 100 footnotes in this book, but none relate to reference books or scholarly texts; instead, they are silly, tongue-in-cheek side notes from Cartmell that provide perspectives on the discussions at hand, showing that none of this is rocket science, just fun and practical applications of age-old biblical wisdom.

The range of topics is vast, including how to plan family outings, how to use positive reinforcement when training children, how to provide strong role models for youngsters, how to use stories and illustrations to teach lessons to children, and how to share Bible lessons that will reveal God's wisdom to young people. The delivery is instructive without being judgmental, informative without getting preachy. The lessons cross all boundaries of fatherhood as they advance through stages of first-time dads, dads with teenagers, and even dads with sons and daughters getting ready to leave the nest.

Cartmell does not claim to have all the answers himself, so he makes references to other sources, ranging from hilarious one-liners from comedian Rodney Dangerfield to serious lectures by psychologist Gary Chapman, and sometimes people who are one in the same, such as comic/educator Dr. Bill Cosby. What makes his writing so contemporary and readable is that he makes references to well known movies ("Rocky"), classic writers (Mark Twain), pop psychologists (Dr. Phil) and famous sports figures (George Foreman). He also sites research done by respected Christian counselors (Tim Elmore, Kevin Leman).

This is enjoyable reading, indeed, but it is also a valuable handbook for Christian men who desire to rear children who are strong in faith, hard working, ethical, and well rounded. – Dr. Dennis E. Hensley,
