RAISING CUBBY - A father-son story
Raising Cubby. A father-son story of tractors, trains, and high explosives
Over the past ten years, at least a hundred memoirs have appeared, each telling the story of a mom raising a child with autism. In those tales, the moms are heroic, and the kids are troubled. Some books are triumphant, while others end with defeat. In every case, the kids and their moms are front and center. But where are the dads?
I decided to address that question by telling my own story of parenting.
In my story, the dad's role in child rearing is fully revealed, and many secrets of fatherhood will be shared, some for the first time ever in print. Some secrets are shocking, while others are enlightening. A few are even amusing, though I view all of them with the greatest of gravity. Among the secrets I reveal:
- How to mark your newborn child, and be protected from "swapped at birth?" exposes forevermore;
- What to do with a kid who won't go to sleep;
- How to tell the difference between nuclear powered robotic farm animals, and natural born creatures;
- Imaginative and creative uses for grandparents;
- The true story of Christmas, including the secret location where coal for children's stockings is stored;
- The best ways to deal with monsters;
- How to build Vegetable Artillery;
- How to buy your own railroad;
- What to say when Federal Agents come calling
Family pets will feel more secure.
