If you have daughters, Daddy Dates by Greg Wright is a wonderful resource. This easy-to-read book written by a Christian husband and father of four girls, gives some wonderful insight on ways to build a relationship, stay connected and plugged-in while they grow up (and hopefully beyond). His whole concept is that by taking his girls on “dates” he can get to truly know them as a person, be trusted by them as well as teach them what kind of respect and treatment they should expect from men.
Not only does Wright share ideas on “dates” to take daughters on, but gives input on conversations to have, tips on parenting, and some guides on pinpointing the personality of your child.
Since the content is not very “churchy” this book can be read by anybody. The short, conversation-like chapters make for a quick read and are full of humor as well as sentiment. Wright brings a man’s point of view on the opposite sex. It can be helpful to other fathers to learn the inner workings of their daughters’ – or wife’s – minds.
As a mom of a daughter and a son I found his tactics endearing and would recommend this book to any parent, regardless of their child’s age. I would love to see an updated version in a few more years after his girls have gone off to college and are married themselves to see how his ideas have evolved and how successful they were.
