Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Dad?
Transparent, Vulnerable and Authentic Feb 20, 2008
This is the best book on fathering that you'll read this year, regardless of whether you're raising sons or daughters. Although the book is a shared journal between father and (adult) son, the principles explained here are valuable in raising daughters also.
Rainer writes with amazing transparency, showing us mistakes in his own attitudes, priorities, and behaviors. Because of that, we're able to easily identify with him --- we fail too; we fall short of being the dad we'd love to become. Any father of teens and older children will relate to Rainer.
At the end of your life, you'll want your children giving your eulogy. You'll want them to say "Dad loved me" and "Dad showed me what love looks like, in action." If you're a person of faith, you'll also want them to say "Dad showed me what God's love really looks like."
Meanwhile, if you live long and prosper, this book can help you make some changes in the way you're parenting right now, today. If you're a dad whose parenting is still in progress, buy and read. You'll be glad you did.
