Daddy Dates
Four Daughters, One Clueless Dad, and His Quest to Win Their Hearts: The Road Map for Any Dad to Raise a Strong and Confident Daughter
by Greg Wright | Genre: Parenting
Release Date: May 2011
 

Like many boys, Greg Wright wanted to be around beautiful women when he grew up. Then he learned the truth of “watch what you wish for.” By 29, Greg was a motivational leader surrounded by gorgeous girls 24/7.

In his own home.

When faced with the reality of raising four beautiful daughters, he went into the woods to plan a strategy for being a successful dad and came back with a mission: Don’t Screw Up.

Daddy Dates is Greg’s funny and moving saga of how he intentionally pursued knowing his girls and in the process, figured out how to overcome the dad-daughter communication barrier, regardless of age or personality type.

This witty and relatable book poses the wildly original concept that should be a “duh” for most men–but isn’t: In order raise a confident woman-to-be, fathers should show their girls what it feels like when a man truly has her best interest at heart.

Just in time for Father’s Day 2011, the self-described “regular-Joe” shares his formula for how both married and single dads can go beyond Hi-Fiving to bridge the gender gap and better connect with his female child… no matter how seemingly close or estranged she may already by.

Daddy Dates is written in an entertain and highly original voice that will appeal to both men and women. It is the kind of action-oriented “how to” material that guys enjoy, and will recommend to their friends. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how much money you have, or whether you wear camo or cashmere– ever father, husband, son and brother can learn something from Greg Wright’s evocative and enlightening read.

Helping Men to Connect with Their Daughters | Posted July 01, 2012

As Greg Wright, father of four girls, realized his oldest was approaching her teen years, he wondered what he could do to help them make solid, wise decisions.  His solution?  Daddy Dates.  He began taking his daughters on dates.  He theorized that when he wanted to show their mother how much he loved her and how interested he was in her, he pursued her and was creative as well.  He decided to try it out with his girls.  He resolved to call them on the phone, and ask them out on a Daddy Date (one at a time).  He paid careful attention to what they were interested in, then told them exactly what to expect on the date.  Wearing a suit, he came to the door to pick them up, then escorted them to the car and opened the door for them.  He explained to each of them what they should expect when they began dating, and told them how men should treat women, modeling it to them.  He also made sure to talk, asking open-ended questions and carefully listening to the answers.  Doing this often over the last nine years, he has developed amazing relationships with his daughters, built on trust and respect.


Wright is extremely easy to read and understand, and he presents many different situations he has been in with his girls.  His Special Thirteenth Birthday Daddy Date is pure genius!  This book was a quick read, but full of practical advice and ideas.  The appendix at the end includes a personality test for help in understanding your daughter(s), and fifteen of his best Daddy Dates.  As the father of two daughters, this book has immediate application value to me.  One of my greatest fears is that somehow I'll fail my daughters and they'll fall into horrible circumstances because of my lack of guidance; Daddy Dates is full of ideas on how to make sure that doesn't happen (or to at least reduce the chances).  Thanks Greg.
