Excerpt #2

And isn’t that quiet confidence what we really need as dads? That instinct that you develop when you have kids that says your kids will be alright. You’ll protect them. You’ll care for them. You wont’ stop them from making every mistake, but at the end of the day, no matter what you feel like as a father, you have the ability to father them and father them well. You’re their biggest fan. You’re the cheerleader they need. I think this grows in us as dads, but I also think it’s there from the beginning. From the second you watch that baby enter the world, isn’t every part of you screaming,

“I got this. You’re safe. Don’t worry.”
