Daddy Dates was a timely book as I have a young daughter and needed the encouragement to continue to build into my relationship with my daughter. The general idea behind the book is amazing, however it seemed that the book didn’t really move past the idea that fathers need to build a relationship with their children. He helps fathers see that a man must “date” his daughters just like he dates or dated their mother.
I believe that in our present times where so many fathers focus more on their career and providing for their family financially, Wright points out that we need to be there relationally and emotionally for our daughters.
In my mind the book could have had more practical ideas and ways for implementing the technique into the readers life. The book was a quick read which was primarily do to the fact that it was a culmination of stories about his own experiences. The book would have gained more in my rankings if it had more factual evidence or proof from others who have applied his techniques.
Overall it was a good read.
