    The book, "Daddy Dates," by motivational leader Greg Wright gave great insight on how dads can establish a better relationship with their daughter(s). I chose this book because we have 3 girls, and I'm sure my husband empathizes with the author of this book. Greg Wright has 4 girls and even their family pet is a female. We have 3 girls, and both pets are females as well. Anyway...

    This book was written in an easy-to-read format sparing the reader from big words that therapists and psychologists or other doctors/professionals would use. There is a wealth of practical advice provided within the pages of the book. Wright is very open and honest about the details of the dates he took his daughters on and their reactions.

    My prayer is that both my husband and I have great relationships with our daughters. We want them to be able to talk to us about anything!! "Daddy Dates" has wonderful ideas on how we can do that, of course, it begins with us.

    It may be easy parenting a daughter when she's little....but what happens when she becomes even more independent, when she's less apt to be daddy's little girl?

    That's the point of Greg Wright's book, Daddy Dates. He readily recognizes that all females desire to be pursued, and to be heard. This "man's man" and father of four teenage daughters writes a candid book of how he intentionally seeks out time with each of his girls, drawing on his skills as a master date planner.

    The book is written for guys, clever, practical, and easily digestible in a weekend read. He holds to his main point, to grow a thriving relationship with your daughter, with the goal that she will be able to think for herself and make good, grounded decisions.

    The book never gets preachy, and Wright even references that the idea is still an ongoing, real life experiment that's getting good results. But a dad with positive rapport with his teenage daughters? There's some wisdom in there I would like to glean. I don't remember his specifically stating if he is a Christian, but he does reference God several times in the book. The book never takes an extremely spiritual tone, but rather remains focused on practical examples of how to develop solid relationships with his daughters.

    Wright does delve into some basic personality type psychology, but it's light and applicable...and a helpful reminder about what's truly important in parenting daughters today.

    Book Review: "Daddy Dates" Greg Wright

    In the book "Daddy Dates" Greg Wright opens up about how raising four daughters has changed his life. He challenges dads today to not only raise their daughters, but to have a relationship with them. Weather you have a small daughter, teenager, or young women this book can really help you understand how to connect to your daughter. From feeling like your relationship with your daughter is slowly going downhill, or trying to figure out how in the world to do this dad-thing, this book is a plus for any dad!

    Being a daughter myself, I was very curious as to what Mr. Wright had to say. As I started reading "Daddy Dates" I realized that Mr. Wright is not speaking about what he thinks rather what he knows. This book hit the mark! I have a great dad who has been totally involved in my life. I thank God everyday for my dad, but I have watched too many of my friends suffer from a lack of dad. Weather dad wasn't there or just wasn't interested, it hurts just the same. I would recommend that every dad read this book, and not just read, but practice what is says!

    Initially, I had a weird reaction to the idea of a dad taking his daughters on dates. I guess there was a bit of an ick factor. BUT I got over that pretty quickly. Wright has killed two birds with one stone with his Daddy dates. He has modeled what a "real" date should be like for his daughters {hopefully this keeps their standards high and helps them avoid less-than-desirable dates}. At the same time, he really did get to know his girls. There's something to be said for the amount of work that went into that. The dates were carefully planned and were tailored to each daughter's interests. Wright even shares personality tests which can shed some light on interests and personality traits.

    Personally, I tend to assume a lot of things about my children... like that their interests will be similar to mine. A perfect example is when I took my oldest to Zumba not too long ago. I'd talked it up and been so excited for her to go with me, only to find out afterwards that she didn't enjoy it. I also feel like I spend a lot of time on auto-pilot or thinking about what needs to be done next instead of enjoying the "now". In doing this, I am missing opportunities to really get to know my kids.

    I realize I'm not necessarily the intended audience for Daddy Dates, but I still enjoyed the book. Wright is funny and what he delivers is, for the most part, common sense. That might not seem like a compliment, but with as busy and distracted as we tend to get, common sense isn't always "common".

    "Daddy Dates" is a how-to guide for fathers on taking out their own daughters on one-on-one outings and in the process, establishing a stronger bond with them. It is supposedly the "road map for any dad to raise a strong and confident daughter". It's not your typical parenting book written by a PhD. Greg Wright is your average dad who stumbled across a surprisingly simple and yet effective method of connecting with his daughters as well as impacting their lives positively during the typical years of growing pains. The book is aimed at fathers with at least one daughter, but it's really for any male who wishes to establish a special relationship with the females in his life.

    I thought the book very entertaining. It is humorous and engaging, even if I found some of the ideas already familiar. It does give many useful tips, and if I were a father raising a daughter, I'd be excited to try out an idea or two as soon as possible. I'm not a father, but I'm married to somebody who is and we're raising a daughter together. I'm definitely making my husband read it as I'm certain it'll benefit our family immensely. Incidentally, I was also able to read the book from the perspective of a man's daughter. While I undoubtedly have a good father, I don't remember him taking me out on a real "daddy date". If we had done "daddy dates", I think my foray into dating life would have been a more positive and secure experience and not one that was prompted by magazine articles from doubtful sources.

    The book has a good blend of theory and illustrations from Wright's personal experiences. The basic idea was discussed thoroughly, with plenty of insight and wit. Another good thing about it is that while the author knew what he was talking about, he never came off sounding like a know-it-all. He's somebody whom fathers could feel would be able to relate to them, even in their moments of confusion and uncertainty.
