This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Raising a Father. All opinions are 100% mine.

My husband and I are older parents. We sometimes worry if we will ever live long enough to see our two young children grow up and mature into adulthood. Because of that fear, our time with our kids are precious.

One of my husband's favorite phrases is, "The time to build a relationship with your children is now, when they are young, and not when they are already teenagers."

I can empathize with the author of the book, Raising a Father. Success in the corporate world means absolutely nothing when, at the end of the day, you come to the realization that you do not know who your children are, and in this author's case, his daughter.

His book is about his journey in the relationship-building with his daughter, about how he leaves the corporate world so he can build a home based company and spend more time with his young daughter, about how he tries to be the best dad that he can be, and about how in that journey it is his daughter who shaped him to become the best and successful dad that he is today.

I have not read the book but it does sound like, from the many positive reviews of the book, it is a book that my husband and I should read. I believe that having a good relationship with your child or children cannot be taught but rather it is something that needs to be practised and experienced.

That is why I feel Arjun Sen's book, Raising a Father, is very heartfelt and speaks very effectively and touchingly to its readers.
