    "A Great Refresher for all Dads!"

    This book had a lot of great helpful advice, not only for first-time dad, but for all dads to continue to keep in mind, great practices pertaining to raising their children.

    It does have a nice “Christian” overtone (not too heavy though) which I appreciate. The book helps us to steer and guide our children through a lot of the cultural and societal challenges of today.

    I also really appreciated the last chapter, Blink, in which the author really brings home the point of how fast these parenting years will go by. Here are some great additional chapters as well:

    - Chapter 5: How to Survive a New Baby
    - Chapter 6: Loving Your Wife
    - Chapter 7: Loving Your Baby’s Mother
    - Chapter 8: Boys and Girls
    - Chapter 10: The Very Keys to Your Child’s Heart
    - Chapter 11: Spiritual Information

    There’s no guarantee that our children will turn out and grow up to be any particular way, but the ideal is to be as engaged, as involved as possible. Of course, it’s also very important to have a loving family environment in which to have a wonderful spouse that you both can be loving and supportive and the overall care of the children. The author has an excellent chapter on being a supportive spouse as well.

    I highly recommend this book for parents, especially men, not just as a beginning, but as a refresher throughout the parenting years for your children.

    "Too conservative"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those that want a Christian themed book.


    What could John Fuller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He wrote it for his target audience. I just didn't realize it was so religious when I bought it. That's my fault. Not his.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Well written.
