Greg Wright absolutely hit the nail on the head with this book! In Daddy Dates, Wright tells the story of how he came up with the concept of Daddy Dates and how it has strengthened his relationship with each of his daughters. In order to really connect with his daughters and relate to them, Wright decided to pursue them with some good, old fashioned dating; he goes so far as to call each daughter to ask her out on a date and to bring her flowers and pick her up at the door, after knocking of course! In addition to building a beautiful relationship with his daughters, he uses these dates to teach them what they should look for in a date and how they should be treated by men. In addition to his story, Wright uses select chapters to address specific times of a girl’s life from tweens to college age.
I love this book! As soon as I type this review, I am going to pass the book onto my husband in hopes that he will see the value in this concept. It’s definitely written for men, but it is also a great read for any mother. The chapters are short and to the point and definitely succeed in getting the point across. Wright says that he wrote the book in “Manglish” so that men would really be able to grasp the whole concept. I would recommend this book to any father raising a daughter. It is very important that a girl have a good relationship with her father and a father can’t go wrong when he actively pursues his daughter’s heart.
This book can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
