Distinct Challenges Dads Face After Divorce with Author and Filmmaker Tez Brooks

GettrGab

“Single dads just don’t know how to ask for help,” says former single dad and author Tez Brooks. After his wife filed for divorce, this family’s world was turned upside down as Tez was left to raise their two young children alone. His experience as a single parent was the foundation for the wisdom and advice he shares with other single dads seeking guidance in his book The Single Dad Detour. Tez reveals why men have a hard time asking for help in the parenting process. In addition, he shares why the church community is such an integral part of helping broken families heal after divorce. Tez encourages dads to ground their identity in Christ, not in their failed relationship and that kids are desperately seeking quality time.
