Proiectul TATA – Project Dad

Una din sarbatorile social-culturale care este promovata in luna Iunie este Ziua Tatalui. Cum nu putem sa traim deconectati la ceea ce se intampla in societate, am folosit mereu acest prilej pentru a invata si a ne sfatui unii pe altii in biserica cum e cel mai bine sa fi barbat/sot/tata. In ultimii ani le-am oferit mereu cate o carte de citit (mi-e cam frica sa-i intreb daca le-au terminat).

Posibilitatea de parcurge in avans o carte scrisa de un tata pentru tati am luat-o ca o provocare persoanala. Si cum autorul e si doctor am acceptat-o ca pe o posibila prescriptie.

“Project Dad” este un ghid practic, impanat cu umor fin scrisa de Todd Cartmell; stilul sau este agreabil, prietenos si se vede ca datorita meseriei pe care o practica in fiecare zi are stiinta relationarii la oameni. Dr. Todd Cartmell este clinical psychologist si lucreaza indeaproape cu familii(copii-parinti). O alta carte de-a sa este “Respectful Kids”.

Project-DadCoperta este foarte sugestiva pentru continut cartii. Tatilor le place sa construiasca ceva, sa fie utili. Care ar fi partile componente ale unui tata maret? Cum sa asamblam un tata bun pentru orice copil?

Autorul provoaca cititorul sa interactioneze cu cinci zone cheie in care un tata se poate regasi si relationa la copilul sau/copii sai. Si pentru a fi mai usor nu de inteles ci mai mult de neuitat, Cartmell asociaza fiecare domeniu o parte a corpului/a trupului ca tot i-a zis sotia sa ca barbatii obisnuiesc sa gandeasca de cele mai multe ori cu partile corpului…(pp17)

Partile propuse de autor sunt:

Ochii – cum te uiti la copii tai;

Gura – cum vorbesti cu copii tai;

Inima – cum te relationezi la copii tai;

Mainile – cum lucrezi/cum te comporti in fata copiilor;

Picioarele – cum iti indrumi copii;

Structura fiecarui capitol include o sectiune de puncte cheie/de retinut cat si sugestii pentru actiune. Cartmell nu ofera un plan detaliat ci ii incurajeaza pe tati sa fie verticali in umblarea lor si naturali, autentici prezenti in viata copiilor.

Un tata nu trebuie sa fie niciodata nici prea ocupat si nici prea obosit pentru a nu a avea timp de copilul/copii sai.

Cartea nu este doar un bun cadou pentru “ziua tatalui” este si un alt interesant punct de discutie pentru dupa-amieze intre prieteni.

Autorul spunea intr-un interviu: “am avut sansa sa vad impactul urias pe care tatii il au in viata copiilor lor; am vazut multi tati care fac o treaba excelenta in viata copiilor lor avand si ei minusurile lor in anumite parti. Incurajarea mare este ca fiecare tata poate fi un tata maret. “

One cultural holidays that is promoted during June’s is Father’s Day. As a church we are trying always to used any opportunity to learn and advise each other  in order to become a good man / husband / father.

The possibility to read a book written by a father for dads I took it as a challenge person; and because the author is a Doctor, I look into it as a possible “prescription”.

“Project Dad” by Todd Cartmell – is a practical guide, stuffed with fine humor written; his style is friendly, knowing how to relate to every person. Dr. Todd Cartmell is Clinical Psychologist and works closely with families (children-parents interactions). Another important book of his is “Respectful Kids.”

Cover the book is very suggestive content. Fathers like to build something, to be useful.
The author challenges the reader to interact with the five key areas in which a father can relate to the child find and / or his children. And to be easier to understand Cartmell associate each field a part of the body(because as his wife suggested, often men’s tend to think with body parts … (pp17) So, how to assemble a good father for every child? In order  to this you may consider:

Eyes – how you look at your children;

Mouth – how are you talking with your children;

Heart – how you relate to your children;

Hands – how you work / how you behave in front of children;

Legs – how you guide children;

The structure of each chapter includes a section of key points – to remember and suggestions for action. Cartmell does not offer a detailed plan encourages fathers to be vertical in their walk and natural, authentic present in children’s lives. The father should never be too busy or too tired  to don’t have time for the child / his children.

In an interview, the author declare: “I had a chance to see the huge impact that fathers play in their children’s lives, I saw many fathers who do an excellent job with their children and they their flaws in parts. Every father can be a great dad. ”

The book is not only a good gift for “father’s day” is also another interesting point of discussion for afternoons with friends.
