His 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad combines straightforward features with step-up-to-the-mark challenges men will appreciate: 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.

Practical tips you can incorporate everyday to build a relationship with your kids
How valuable tucking the kids in at night could be. I've often thought I would be tapering our night routine off. Payleitner gave some great ideas and points to keep this aspect alive in our routine.
Many of the concepts of spending time together or small little things to do on a daily or frequently. Some of his ideas I already do, but now I have some confirmation that it has worked in his life.
A must read for every man wanting to be a better Dad.
One of the best recent books published on fatherhood. Detailed and personable. My only critique is that it's all from one perspective and that shows through in the advice.
Boo to the publisher and boo to Audible for not describing this book for what it is; a diatribe about following the bible, disguised as a book about parenting. God and Jesus abound in this book. The parenting advice is valid but simplistic and very much secondary to the main message. I want my credit back!
Nowhere in the description is it mentioned that this is a religious book. If you are looking for parenting information this is a complete waste of a credit.
