Below I’ve included three book reviews of the Dad Connection that solidify why I wrote a book in the first place. As always, I am very appreciative of the feedback and thought I would share this readers experience with you:
“The book is quite different from most parenting books I have read in that Mr. Hanley does not profess to be an expert on child psychology or child raising. What he brings to this book is a keen awareness of what was going on between him and his two boys. This book captures the memories and experiences between Mr. Hanley and his two boys from infants to young men.
This book presents some very basic truths about human relationships and how understanding and applying those truths to raising children will makes us better parents and give the children the foundation they need to learn and grow into productive, grounded adults. Highly recommended for anyone responsible for raising children.”
“Having good, loving relationships with kids is not always an easy feat, but Scott Hanley has written a wonderful book full of great insight. He is a single parent who had to change his life to raise two boys. This book is helpful for any parent who would like to bridge the gap in their relationships with their children. The Dad Connection offers great advice, not just for Dads, to build relationships with kids and grow in order to provide love and respect. Enlightening and engaging, this is a great book from an author with first hand experience of the hardship and rewards of raising kids.”

“It takes loving and caring parents to raise a child, families of the past knew that and practiced it. Psychologists,and the reams of other social experts and agencies today, unfortunately seem to think otherwise. When you listen to them, remember that Psychology is an Art, not a Science, and one solution does not fit all, nor is what’s believed today will continue to be accepted in the future.
Raising children is probably the greatest responsibility one can assume, there will be problems, successes and all the happiness that goes with it. However; the author assumed his responsibility, carried it out to the best of his ability and I commend him and his boys for what they accomplished. As Frank Sinatra so amply said,’I Did It My Way’.”
