You can have a successful career and be the dad you want to be.
Finally, we've moved past the days when providing for your family meant taking a backseat role in your children's lives. Still, many of us aren't finding the support and flexibility we need, and the time-management challenge of performing at work while being a present dad at home can feel impossible.
Advice for Working Dads will help you balance and integrate your career and fatherhood, navigate always-on work cultures, and find success and fulfillment in one of the toughest—and most important—jobs you'll ever take on.

- Set reasonable expectations and limits
- Carve out quality time for family, even when you're at your busiest
- Stay true to yourself, your friends, and your personal interests
- Communicate better with your spouse or partner about careers, parenting, and chores
- Model your work and life values for your children
