Daddy Dates is written to give dads tools to build relationships with their daughters, mainly in the form of dates (thus the title). Wright outlines the intentions behind the dates, how to implement the dates, and the impact of the dates with his four daughters. Included at the back of the book are a personality test and a list of suggested dates for the dads who need the extra help in the creativity department.
Having a house full of daughters, I was eager to read Wright’s thoughts on raising girls. This book offers some insight on parenting from a dad’s point of view and gives dads plenty of advice on how exactly to carry out a “daddy date.” For many, this may be a new idea and Wright starts those dads on the right path. The inclusion of the personality test and date ideas is a great bonus to the book. This is an easy read, like a light-hearted conversation with a friend. From a book that calls itself a “road map for any day to raise a strong and confident daughter,” I would have preferred more depth. From a Christian publisher, I would have appreciated more emphasis on Godly values. All in all, it is good material for dads looking to be more involved in their daughters’ life. Just don’t stop here.
