    "On Point and practical tips"
    What did you love best about 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad?

    Practical tips you can incorporate everyday to build a relationship with your kids


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad?

    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.


    What does Jay Payleitner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His enthusiasm.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for every man wanting to be a better Dad.

    "a great read"

    A lot of it is know but it puts it into perspective. Sometimes you need what is known told to you. Enjoyed it

    "Great stuff"

    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.

    Story
    "I feel Ripped Off - This is just Christian Dogma"

    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!

    "This is a religious book."
    What would have made 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad better?

    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.
