Daddy Dates

From the back of the book: "Daddy Dates" is about a guy taking his best shot at being a successful dad by trying to know his girls-really know their fears, dreams, and opinions-and how he stumbles across an incredible strategy to do that with daughters of any age or stage. This funny, insightful, and relatable book poses the wildly original concept that should be a "duh" for most dads-but isn't. In order to raise a confident woman-to-be, show your daughter what it feels like to be treated with love, respect, and true interest by a man who loves her.

"Daddy Dates" is not another "how to" book from a parenting expert. It's a personal, eye-opening, often humorous look at an Average Joe's intentional pursuit of his daughters' hearts and minds, and the love-inspired steps he is taking to solidify Dad's place in each of their lives, forever.

My review: Daddy Dates is a great book for a dad (and mom) who has daughters. The book is fun, easy to read, and is full of practical advice. Greg Wright is open and honest about what has and has not worked for him in relation to his daughters. Even though some dads might already take their daughters on dates, Greg gives ideas and specifics about what does and does not constitute as a date. Some dads might find that their idea of a date is not going to make the cut. Each chapter is short and full of humor, so men that don't enjoy reading as a general rule will find this book very easy to read. Greg has also included helpful tools at the end of the book to help jump-start dads who might be unsure exactly what to do and how to start. Every dad who has daughters needs to read this book. Moms need to read the book as well if for no other reason than to support dad in one of his most important endeavors: "Becoming her hero, one date at a time." I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze blogger program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
