Daddy Dates: Four Daughters, One Clueless Dad, and His Quest to Win Their Hearts
Wow! What a concept! In his first book, Daddy Dates, author Greg Wright shares his perspective on how to connect with the most important people in your life, besides your spouse, your children! Faced with the task of raising four daughters, Wright shares a portion of his journey in connecting with his daughters by taking them on “daddy dates.” These daddy dates are designed to foster the relationship with his daughters and teach them at the same time. His purpose is to really get to know each one of his daughters while teaching them how the next important man in their life, their future husband, should treat them.
Within the pages of Daddy Dates, you will find insight into how to get creative in getting to know your children. When “dating” his daughters, he always calls them and asks them formally to go out on a date. Then he plans something based on the particular personality and “likes” of the individual daughter. In the back of the book, there is a personality assessment tool for the parent and child. There is also a list and description of different types of dates in case the parent needs help getting started.
I really liked this book. It was full of humor and great ideas. I admire this man’s initiative to be involved in his daughter’s lives and be responsible for the outcome of their future. Although written primarily for dads and daughters, any parent, (or step-parent), can take the contents of the book and apply it to their own relationship with their children. I recommend this book to anybody desiring a better relationship with their children. If you are the wife, and your husband needs some assistance relating to his daughter’s and just doesn’t know where to start, buy him this book.
Many blessings and happy reading!
