Daddy Dates

daddy dates by Greg Wright

This book is about a regular guy who had four daughters and didn't have a clue what to do. He married young and had four girls very quickly. He felt in over his head and came up with a solution - daddy dates.
This book outlines how he went about setting up dates with his daughters and how he felt this enriched his relationships with them.

I have to say, I was very impressed with his insights into how to "deal" with women. He chose to take his daughters on dates to get to know them better. He opened his mind to the fact that they were growing up and he needed to be there for them in every aspect of their lives. He got around the "I need to fix it" way of thinking and actually listened to them. He made their conversations a safe place so they always felt welcome to talk to him. He built trust.

The book is written by a regular guy with regular girls. This made it a very easy and enjoyable read.
I'm a mom, but I really enjoyed the book and am giving it to my husband to read. Wives benefit from their husbands reading this book and I think some of the things he talked about can be applied to our son as well.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has married a woman or has children. It's that good.
