Single Dad Jorge Arguello, Nicaraguan-American Author Nears Completion of His Book, ‘The Modern Single Dad: Artfully Raising Children’
Redding, CA (PRWEB) September 26, 2005
Jorge Arguello of Redding, California, nears completion of his much anticipated book, “The Modern Single Dad: Artfully Raising Children”. His book will cover the “real life” joys, sorrows, ups and downs of being a single father with Full Custody of his children without the participation or even the presence of the other parent in the child’s life whatsoever.
“Back when I was a newbie single dad, there were no resources like forums or blogs, and there weren’t any books you could find covering child-rearing or any information as a support system for dads like me,” Arguello says. “So I decided to write one and provide that resource of helpful tips and insights for today’s single dad on what it takes to raise children to adulthood that you can be proud of.”
When Arguello began the enviable task of raising his children, the single dad “movement” was merely a wave, but in time that wave eventually turned into a tsunami as part of the structure of the American family.
“Today, there are so many single dads, but most “share” custody with the other parent and that is fundamentally different than the dad that has full custody of his children without the other parent being present at all in their lives.” Arguello adamantly says, “And that psychological impact is the crucial difference on how those children will be raised as opposed to those with both parents present in their lives. Plus that same difference to the dad means he must fulfill the roles of dad and mom; not the easiest thing for an American male today.”
Statistics reveal that girls without a father in their life are two and a half times as likely to get pregnant and 53 percent more likely to commit suicide. And when it comes to the 6 to 10-year-old children that are raised in divorced-mother only households, statistics revealed a significantly increased likelihood for them to lie, destroy property, and associate with other children who get into trouble.
“This is a construct that does not have to be a reality. The fact is we have gotten away from raising our children like our parents and our parents before them, which I believe is the contributing factor to the demise of the family unit, and the creation of irresponsible, disrespectful adults today,” says Arguello. “With the divorce rate at more than 53% and with more females wanting to be single or staying single longer, interested in careers and being competitive in the job market, it leaves little time to raise children anymore. Motherhood has definitely taken a back seat for them. By the same token, men have stepped up to the plate and the single dad revolution is well entrenched.”
With barely any information out there to help the single dad with full custody of their children today, Arguello is not only writing the book, “The Modern Single Dad: Artfully Raising Children”, but also developing the follow-up books, the website and blogs that will be a resource for the single dad to get the answers he needs to raise his children into respectable, responsible and well adjusted adults that he can be proud of.
