The Dad Connection

Now Available for purchase on Amazon.

This book has been long in the making. If you’d like to read the origins of this book, visit my personal reflections in these blog posts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

About The Dad Connection:

Scott Hanley’s journey as a single parent raising two boys is a wellspring of experience, advice and know-how. Using his own deeply personal notes on the process of raising his children, recorded as their lives unfolded, he determined that love and respect would be the simple base upon which he would build relationships.

The Dad Connection: A Bridge to Your Children is Scott’s understanding of the love, respect, patience, energy, care, perspective, service and trust needed to build strong and deeply loving parent-child relationships. It is a life-altering lens through which to see, understand and love the relationship you have been blessed to receive.

In Praise of The Dad Connection:

“Scott Hanley’s new book sheds a glowing light on how to connect with your children.  His unique experience raising two boys in a complicated world gives the reader an insightful look on rewarding ways to enrich the relationship between fathers and sons.  A great read!”

-Tod Breslau, Father and Business Owner

….”A personal and endearing story of growth between father/dad and sons.  Lessons are based on deep reflections with regard to service, love and respect and much more….unconditional love and fulfillment of personal responsibility.  This story easily swept me to reflect on my relationship with my daughter”.

“The Dad Connection offers parents thoughtful and positive advice on
how to modify our own actions—and reactions—to build meaningful and
connected relationships with our children. With clear and simple
principles, real-life examples and practical applications, this book  is a must-have resource for parents who want to do better, but don’t
know how.”

The reader is enlightened as to the importance and path for raising our children with a bond beyond words and action that lasts a lifetime, long after they leave our daily embrace.”

-Lauren Tietsort, Mother and Director of Individual Giving OMSI
