The "daddy date" is devoted time just to them as a unique and special person. He achieves this by having "daddy dates" with them. On a daddy date he picks up the girl at home, takes her to a restaurant and/or an activity (not a movie, but an activity that promotes conversation) that she would like. Finally, starts a discussion with her and mostly listens. As a bonus, he is modeling the kind of behavior a special young man should show them when they go on dates (his daughters do not date in high school - they can go out in groups but not paired off dates).
Greg Wright is not a professional expert on children but he does have a firm grasp on the often-confusing interaction between men and women. He offers lots of practical advice on what makes a good "date" with a daughter, several sample date ideas, and even personality profiles to give us clueless dads a place to start with a good discussion on the first "date."
This is a very quick and easy read, but I think it is an important book.
The author also has a website to offer additional resources.
I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review.
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
