|Great Father's Day gift...any time of the year! Jun 3, 2010|
|Whether you are standing in the foxhole of parenting or have survived the battle and enjoy the victory of grandchildren, this book is NOT one to ignore.|
The father of five advises: kids are going to test you. Be ready. Stand in the middle of their bedroom and just observe. Forgive your own dad and tell your kids something good about him. If you have a prodigal child, don't turn your back on him.
Jay gives us a new way to answer the phrase, "I'm bored." As summer approaches, those tips alone are invaluable. [Buy the book and be ready for it!] He also reminds us we are working our way out of a job. Time will fly by. Stop and catch some fireflies.
As I read this book I cried. I laughed. I thanked God for my father who parented the best he could without the benefit of books like these that encourage dads to be all they can be.
Go ahead, I dare you, dads; take this book into the bathroom for a week instead of the newspaper. Bet you can't read just one chapter.
|Must read for Dad's of all ages!! Apr 12, 2010|
|Jay has a way of putting you right in the middle of his living room and learning from his successes, failures and more importantly what God's word can teach us about how to raise kids. As a father of 3 boys, I found Jay's book inspiring, challenging and a fun read. It is quick and easy and packed with great ideas and thoughts on how to raise kids. I have already begun to plan out a few ideas with my kids and never will yell at my kids about spilling milk again (gotta get the book to find out what this about). Thank you Jay for your passion for Dad's and teaching others how to be a good one. This book will make you think and your wife will enjoy the stories as well.|
|Loved it! Apr 9, 2010|
|Get a copy of this book, read it, and then pass it forward to another dad you know. Better yet, get two copies so you still have one left when you pass it on.|
|A Valuable Book for Any Dad Mar 9, 2010|
|Mr. Payleitner's book touches on very simple deeds that when put into practice reap great gains, strengthening relationships between father and child. Anything worth doing is worth doing well,especially when it comes to parenting. Every father and father-to-be should own a copy.|
