I am engaged to a great guy but he doesn't have kids of his own so he doesn't have the parenting experience or natural instinct. I am confused on what I should expect from him and how to "teach" him that parental bond. Is it even possible or are people just born with it? He wants to be a great dad but I don't feel like his heart is all of the way in it. Any advice or books to read?Answer Question

So you son is not his son? He might not feel a bond to your son, because it is not his blood child. Some people are just that way. As long as your son and him have a good relationship. You shouldn't worry. When you two have a child together he should change.
One important thing to remember. You can not teach him anything. He has to want to be a father.
