As a father of two daughters, I thought that this book might be helpful. After all, this book claims to help you “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.” This of course is vital later on when she will choose her life partner.
I found this book to be humorous and insightful. Greg Wright gives many examples and ideas for “Daddy Dates.” The purpose of these “dates” is not just fun, but it is to establish and maintain a line of communication with her. While it is still a fun time, it takes some work to keep up with what is going on in your kid’s life. Basically, you want to remain her #1 guy so she will trust your advice and guidance.
Wright also includes a personality type test which I found interesting. The purpose of this is to see what types of activities are most enjoyable for your child’s personality type. My only criticism would be that there was a lack a Bible verses to support the author’s views. I suppose this was to appeal to a greater audience, but I have come to expect Biblical support from Thomas Nelson.
This book was received from Thomas Nelson Press in exchange for an honest review.
