As a newly separated single mother of two year-old Tayler, author B. A. Burnett knew life was not going to be easy. She knew she would have to find a new way of doing things. In Really Dad?? she narrates the personal story of how she and her son navigated their new world together in an effort to call attention to the effects of divorce on children and to help other single parents cope with their situation.
In this memoir, Burnett discusses her son's fears and feelings of abandonment, sadness, anger, and resentment after losing his father figure. She also shares the many questions Tayler posed about the break up and divorce. Really Dad?? explores the complexities of custody, visitation, coparenting, new relationships, and the importance of communication between parents and between parents and children.
While providing tips to other single parents facing the same issues, Really Dad?? communicates that being a parent is a gift that cannot be approached lightly and emphasizes that fathers play a crucial role in their child's development.
