Description

God, please help me another game of Candy Land

Quite a few dads spend time with their kids. However, many have no clue what their kids really need.

Enter author Jay Payleitner, veteran dad of five, who's also struggled with how to build up his children's lives. His 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad combines straightforward features with step-up-to-the-mark challenges men will appreciate:

  • a full year's worth of focused, doable ideas one per week, if desired
  • uncomplicated ways to be an example, like kiss your wife in the kitchen
  • tough, frank advice, like throw away your porn

And, refreshingly

  • NO exhaustive (and exhausting) lists of things you should do
  • NO criticism of dads for being men and acting like men

Dads will feel respected and empowered, and gain confidence to initiate activities that build lifelong positives into their kids. Great gift or men's group resource
