    Good, basic common rules for parenting!

    I rated this book one star lower than I would have if not disgusted with such frequent use of the "f" word. Other than that, the book is quite entertaining and would be useful to parents trying to figure out the best way to raise their kids. Those with parenting experience will definitely identify with many of the situations the author faced. I recommend the book as long as the language doesn't turn you off!

    Known for being an actor, Steve Schirripa tells the story of his

    Known for being an actor, Steve Schirripa tells the story of his life as being a dad.  His old school rules and advice and his humor make this a perfect  self help book for any parent of girls, especially teenage girls.  His definition of Big Daddy is someone who is strong, devoted, and always looking out for his girls even if it means he is not the cool dad.

    This book is informational but so funny and enjoyable.  I have a tween and a teenager, both girls.  The stories Steve shares in his story hit home with me.  The stories of his kids pushing for more freedom, of dating, and of fighting were almost exactly the story of my life.   I got ideas on how to react and how to approach some issues.  As a mom I saw a lot more of my husband in Steve’s reactions then myself in his reactions and thoughts.  They made me laugh and shake my head.

    I absolutely loved this book.  I laughed, I cried (when he left his daughter at college), and I read… and read…and read.  I could not stop.  Anyone, Mom or Dad, who has teenage girls will relate to Steve.  This could be labeled as self-help or parenting, but it is so much more.  I will certainly recommend this to my fellow parents.
