Product Description


As the father of two teenagers, I found Pickhardt's book to be an important, supportive, and straightforward look at one of the most challenging stages of fatherhood. (Armin Brott, author of The Expectant Father and Father for Life: A Journey of Joy, Challenge, and Change)

Teenage aggression and growth March 7 2008
By DAW - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a professor of social psychology I have found The Connected Father to be invaluable when students suggest, as occurs all too frequently that (a) the abuse they received at the hands of a father made them stronger, or (2) anything that a young person cannot discuss calmly and reasonably should not be discussed at all. Dr. Pickardt's view is precisely the opposite. He renders conflict between teenagers and parents a thing not to be dreaded, not a thing to be either repressed or avoided, but a phenomenon of growth. A thing to be welcomed and embraced. It is the gateway to a young person's independence and maturity. What pleases me most is that his arguments come across not as the pronouncements of an expert, but as the reinforcement of basic awarenesses that lie buried in most of us. They make common sense, and we have to wonder what has blocked us from fuller awareness of them until now. This is an important question, but a separate one and requires another book. In the meantime, the guidelines provided here are as valuable as any lifeline in a sea of angst and uncertainty. I have no doubt that through my classes alone Dr. Pickhardt has impacted hundreds of new parents in a most productive way.

The Connected Father Sept. 15 2012
By Tony Praskin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book. Full of insightful observations, suggestions, and truths about fathering.
Even though my children are in the very late stages of childhood, I value much of the
information in the book. A must read for every father, or that matter, anyone who works with
people between the ages of 9 and 25
