A compilation of notes from Steinberg's personal journal reflecting on the first five years of being an involved, primary parent. When his son was born in 1971, Steinberg decided that he didn't want to be a distant, second parent, in the male breadwinner tradition. He and his wife agreed to both work part-time and share parenting responsibilities and opportunities equally. At the time, there were no role models, and no published accounts to assist men interested in stepping out of traditional male roles in that way. After five years, Steinberg decided to put together a book of personal reflections and insights, taken from the entries related to fathering in his extensive personal journals. In the years after it was published, Fatherjournal became a pioneering source of support and insight for men interested in making involved parenthood a primary part of their lives.
