A role model for helping men become AWESOME FATHERS

This emotionally gripping true story of how a juvenile court judge helped his own developmentally challenged son through many years of school failure by building an awesome emotional bond with him will never be out of date even when it is out of print. Judge Leenhouts' love for and commitment to his son Bill provide reliable and inspiring guidance for other fathers in our culture to follow, regardless of the specific problems they or their children may face. As a former juvenile probation officer myself, I am sure that many of the youthful offenders I've seen would never have become delinquents if they had had the kind of father love which Bill had-even if they were failing in school because of educational disadvantages. A father's love such as Bill enjoyed builds in a child an emotional immune system which can withstand virtually any onslaught which life can throw at it. Bill ultimately succeeded after many years of heartbreaking failure, and went on to become a teacher, though he had been told that he would never be able to go to college. This father and son story should not be missed--beg, buy, or borrow it as soon as possible.
