“Out on a Limb” book review by Greg Millan

Simon Turner is a single father who has written and published a book called “Out on a Limb - A single fathers guide to his family’s lore of the jungle” for other single fathers on a similar journey to obtain a shared care agreement for their children. This book is simply the best guide to this subject ever written in Australia. I cannot recommend it more highly. Ever separated men with or without children and every worker who works with separated men should buy this book and read every valuable page. Simon’s advice is sound and simple.

First-Time Father: The essential guide for the new dad

First Time Father

For many men, the birth of their first child is a truly life-changing event. First-Time Father: The essential guide for the new dad provides fathers with the answers and options to enable them to design a rewarding and effective fatherhood journey.

It seems that what new fathers are wanting has continued to change over the last five years. In this revised edition of First-ime Father, the authors Dr Graeme Russell and Tony White (who both work extensively with new fathers) show that contemporary men want to:

  • have a strong and enduring relationship with their children;
  • be actively involved in the day-to-day care of their children;
  • share the parenting and paid work equally with their partner;
  • take extended leave from paid work to be the primary caregiver for a period of time; and
  • reduce their hours of work (for example, to part-time) to behighly involved in caring for their child.

DIY divorce: Navigating the court system

You have the feeling there's not much in the way of bad marital behaviour family lawyer Robert Larkins has not seen, particularly as marriages grind to a close.

A professional life spent watching couples battle their way through divorce -- fighting not only each other, but their ignorance of the court system -- has provided plenty of insight into the messier side of human nature.
