"Daddys OK" looks at the true experiences of 14 men going through separation or divorce. Their stories are told in three main stages: Eyes Opening how they become fully aware of what has occurred; Existing With What You See how they get through their lives while coming to terms with what is now visible, and Living and loving making sense of life as it is and turning it into something positive and long-lasting. With over 50,000 Australian men and women getting divorced every year, this process of separation and divorce has become a common rite of passage for men. How well men do this directly impacts on their performance at work, in new relationships, and in maintaining a healthy relationship with their ex-spouse/co-parent and children. Not every man interviewed for the book claims to be in a better place after their divorce. Each man has a story that is as similar as it is different, and each one of them illustrates things that work, and what dont work, to build stronger and healthier individuals, husbands, fathers, and family relationships generally. Throughout these stories, we look at what is going on inside for the man, what his motivation is and how that translates into action, what tools are available, and whether the action is constructive or not. We also look at how these issues are sometimes portrayed in the media and how the power of headlines, like daddy day care only is often disassociated from the reality of the actual research they are based on.
