'Mummy's going off to work. Daddy, you're going nowhere!' Ben Robertson knew that staying at home with his first child would be hard, but the stark reality was much, much tougher than he had ever expected. Would he ever be out of his pyjamas before 5pm again? Despite the challenges, the bond he developed with his son was all he'd hoped for and more. However, after his estranged father reappeared in his life and his second son was born, Ben started questioning his own ability as a father. He began to wonder if he was the only person in the world not coping with parenthood. Was it the exhaustion and isolation that made it all so much more difficult? Or was it something deeper? In this funny and searingly honest memoir, Ben Robertson tackles child-rearing issues from a man's perspective. Hear Me Roar is a rare insight into what being a parent means in a wold where the boundaries are constantly shifting.
