I came across a very touching story this morning on CNN.com: If I die, Who Will Teach My Daughters?

When a young author is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, he wonders who is going to teach various life lessons to his young daughters as they grow older.

Feiler came up with a extraordinary answer. He would put together a group of men and call them his council of dads. Six men from different stages of Feiler’s life who could be Feiler’s voice, and could teach his girls the life lessons he might not be there to teach.

The article is well worth a read and includes a 5-step outline of how to form your own council of moms or dads.
