Poems for My Kids

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Anyone who has a kid has been asked "those" questions.  Your kids want to know what you were like at their age.  They want to know what you felt when in their situation.  They want to know what decisions or actions you took, or maybe they know but they just want to know why...

This covers it for me.  I'll talk your ear off when it comes to most things, but not really about me.  This is me showing myself to my kids in a way I could never adequately express otherwise.  The nice thing is, it is something they can read over and over again.  They don't have to try to remember what I said or what I meant...

My oldest is about to be a teenager, we all know how that goes.  Suddenly we old folk don't know what we're talking about and we have no idea how they feel.  This book puts all that to rest.  Out kids can read and realize that we know exactly what they are going through...

...and we made it through...

...and we may have a little good advice for them after it all...  

Chapter I are my "Birthday Poems",  poems I wrote from my 12th to 19th Birthdays...
Chapter II are various poems that I wrote on my Birthday's while in my 20's...
Chapter III are various poems that I wrote in my 30's
Chapter IV provides 23 sonnets of Fatherly Advice for my kids...
