Big Daddy's Rules

Raising Daughters Is Tougher Than I Look
Schirripa, Steven R. (Book - 2013 )
Big Daddy's Rules
Print

Item Details

Steve Schirripa is known for his star turns on The Sopranos and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but in his own life he's the father of two daughters--and a self-confessed human volcano. Here, Schirripa brings a welcome dose of old-school advice (and new-school humor) to the parenting wars. He lays out all the rules for being a Big Daddy--someone who is strong, devoted, and always looking out for his kids' best interests, even when that means not being the coolest dad on the block. Overprotective? Maybe. Willing to tone it down? Absolutely not. Big Daddy's Rules is filled with tales of his over-the-top yet heartfelt parenting style--confronting bad teachers, staring down boyfriends, and explaining just how crazy you're allowed to get if you catch your kid drinking. This is a call to action for dads to return to common-sense parenting and reclaim their role as protector and holder of values to be passed down.--From publisher description.
