George Cave has rolled out a new website for his first book “Just Be A Dad”. In this book Gearge leaves nothing out in regards to the influence of a father and what makes a father a dad starting with being a good husband. He notes that men have a tendency to be immature and selfish. However, they must push themselves beyond that way of behaving and thinking. Cave adds: “Only when a man makes an effort to exercise the influence he possesses can he be the type of father that his children need.” The author has found that a man can learn how to be more caring, loving, and involved with his children’s upbringing and have a positive influence on his children. Take a look inside “Just Be A Dad: Things My Father Never Told Me”.
