What is included with this book?
After Eric Davis spent over 16 years in the military including a decade in the SEAL Teams, his family became more than accustomed to him being away on deployments and secret missions that would obscure his whereabouts for months. When he left the Teams in 2008, he was eager to develop his relationship with his son, having lacked a father figure himself since he was fifteen. He thought "Quality Time" would happen now that he could spend more "Quantity of Time." He could not have been more wrong.
Facebook, television, phones, video games - all these get in the way of real, meaningful relationships with our sons--even beginning when they are just five years old. Since we are competing with a world of extremes when it comes to getting the attention of our kids, even when you're together at home, meeting extreme with extreme is the only answer. SEALs learn to function at a high level outside of their normal, comfortable elements. Father and son need to do the same. Whether it's climbing, hiking, biking, or traveling, taking your son out of the house and away from distractions of everyday life to face new challenges TOGETHER will bring you two closer. Rediscover risk-taking and adventure--nothing will bring you closer to your son. And that's just the start.
Through stories and lessons learned by Eric and many other SEALs in fatherhood, readers of Raising Men will learn to connect with their sons by discovering the spirit of adventure - the Navy SEAL way.
