I got this book for my husband who has had a hard time communicating and relating with our daughters. He hasn't read the book yet but was very appreciative and excited to read it. In his words "Anything to help is appreciated" I think this book will definitely give him some insight on how to react to certain situations and help him understand that a momentary action can last a lifetime when it comes the girls.Read More

When I told my husband that I purchased a book for him to read on fatherhood; His reaction was not what I expected. He felt that no book could tell him how to raise a child...He would just learn through trial and error... :) So stubborn... He actually decided to read a few chapters of the book and he loved it! Said the topics are highly appropriate and that he will take a lot of the advice as our baby girl grows. We can't wait for her arrival!Read More
