9781909609464: Muddle Your Way Through Fatherhood: How to fool people into thinking you're a competent dad

This is the book dads across the world have been waiting for all their lives, whether they’re on the verge of parenthood, or already knee-deep in kids. They just didn’t know they were waiting.

Letting you in on the inside secrets that the ‘real’ parenting books don’t dare tell you, this book will arm you with all the tips, cheats and excuses you’re going to need to seem like a vaguely adequate father.

Find out..

  • If you have chosen the right mother for your children
  • Simple ways to avoid being assaulted during childbirth
  • Why babies shouldn’t watch Schindler’s List
  • How to change a nappy in 17 easy stages
  • Coping strategies if your son becomes a nerd
  • The greatest lies to tell your kids
  • Whether it’s possible to make your child less stupid
  • Tell-tale signs your teenager has become a terrorist

Using a series of scientifically questionable quizzes, flowcharts, checklists and celebrity advice, this award-worthy book will be quite possibly the most important thing you ever read, and will ensure that no one ever thinks you’re a terrible father again. Except possibly your kids, but they don’t count.

“A witty, must-read book for both men on the verge of becoming a dad or knee deep in kids already. It will have both mums and dads laughing out loud.” - Familiesonline.co.uk

“Rude, crude and perfect for all dads to be... Hilarious!” - Practical Parenting

“Comedic genius - the best parenting book I've read. Bypass the yawnsville factual books and get this one. Honestly, I really loved it and it’s the one I'm going to buy for Dads to be in future. It's pants-pissingly funny (a rating that should be available on Amazon and The Book Depository), but it's also true.  Facts are offered up with maximum wit and sarcasm as well as real advice on how to handle situations without group hugs and over-emoting. I'm definitely keeping this book on hand. Muddle Your Way Through Fatherhood covers how real people handle parenting's tricky situations.  Not how Super Nanny and Dr Phil would handle them were they to mate and produce a golden child. And if the Dad in your life isn't quite cutting it, get him a copy too so that he may brush up on his fathering (and husbanding) skills. It's bloody hilarious and very clever.” - Parentalparody.com

“The book dads across the world have been waiting for all their lives, letting you in on the insider secrets the so-called ‘real’ parenting books don’t dare tell you. It will arm you with all the tips, cheats and excuses you’re going to need!” - MADE Magazine

Praise for Paul Merrill’s A Polar Bear Ate My Head...

“You’re guaranteed a laugh a page.” - The Observer

About the Author:

Paul Merrill is a father of three boys and has learned the hard way about all the pratfalls and textbook errors that most fathers make. To thoroughly research this book, he made most of them himself and is now pitied by everyone who knows him and, more crucially, by his children.
