Daddy Dates Book Review


A motivational speaker and father of four girls developed Daddy Dates. Greg Wright made his career telling others how to live their best life, yet he felt a chasm growing between him and his daughters and decided a little one-on-one time might be an improvement. His words of wisdom are set out in a new book called Daddy Dates.

Always brunch! And what better cocktail to have with brunch than a mimosa? With the holidays quickly approaching, gatherings will be happening more frequently as we focus more on quality time with family and friends. If you have little ones like I do, evenings can be hard to pull more

Other things in the book got me thinking. Like when to let our girls date. It seems like a long way off, but I am keen on the author'??s idea of only allowing group dates until college. The idea is that the girls can focus on school, sports and extracurricular activities.
