Author: Ben Robertson

 buy ebook 

Ben Robertson was a successful journalist when he and his wife decided to have children. In a life-changing move, Ben enthusiastically volunteered for the role of Mr Mum while his wife became the main breadwinner.

Written with an engaging mix of humour and brutal honesty, Ben’s story covers the raising of his two sons over five years. As a stay-at-home dad Ben is pushed to the depths of tiredness, frustration and despair, moments shared equally with the heights of great joy and energy.

What emerges is a unique understanding of the price many women pay when they stay at home to look after the children. Hear Me Roar offers insight into the deeper emotional territory of the effects of children on relationships and the changing role of men in families. Looking after children is easily the hardest and most rewarding job Ben has done. Why then does it sometimes leave him feeling lonely and confused and lacking in confidence? Tackling these child-rearing issues honestly from a man’s perspective makes this book a rare read on being a dad, warts and all.
