What a Son Needs from His Dad by Michael O'Donnell Book Review
What a Son Needs From His Dad: How a Man Prepares His Sons for Life by Michael O'Donnell is a book for fathers who want to raise their son in a godly way. Michael shares how fathers are the first and greatest influence on their sons and they are the ones to guide and instruct their sons. He examines different types of fathers- military dad, hypocrite dad, business partner dad, super spiritual dad and the the "real McCoy" dad. What dad do you want to be for your son? He lists 10 ways to foster a good working relationship for fathers to have with their son. This book shares wisdom for work, play, discipling, choosing friends, being a good citizen, preparing for marriage and releasing your son into the world.
This book was very easy to read and was full of touching stories and wisdom gems for raising boys. The role of the father is so important in a son's life. This book is an excellent guide that is encouraging and really helps the father to make an effort to prepare their sons for life with a good foundation and godly principles.
