What Parents Say
Anne and I enjoyed the Father to Son book so much. that we went back to buy Father to Daughter. Since then we have given many of them to our friends. They make great presents for brand new parents. They are terrific for Little League dads, soccer moms, and teenage wardens.”
“The books are a must for all fathers and fathers-to-be. They are funny, insightful, and enlightening.”
“When I read Mr. Harrison’s first book Father to Son, I was reminded of the things that make my relationship with my son so full. When I read his book “Father to Daughter”, I couldn’t have changed a word…it was my relationship with my daughter. The thoughts he poses are both real and motivating. I highly recommend the books to every father, especially the new ones. There are wonderful ideas useful for every day relationship building, and example setting. Thank you Mr. Harrison for such helpful books.”
I purchased 1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know at a gift store a few years ago for my son. After reading it, I realized the book was packed full of wisdom. It is written with a sense of humor that teenagers understand. I now order the book in multiples of 10 or more and give out to kids that are juniors. It helps to steer their thoughts toward what college is all about. I highly recommend this book.
My advice: get this wonderful book for your high school freshman…the tips will help her make the most of what her high school has to offer and be an attractive candidate colleges pursue. My only caveat is #6 on pg. 12 I think those scores are way too low to gain admission to top schools.
The author, Harry H. Harrison Jr., interviewed many women in an attempt to understand what exactly it means to be a Mom. There are so many of these sayings that made me laugh and others that made me cry. I hope my daughter will find as much joy in reading them as I did. Some of these sayings she will soon understand, others she will understand as her child gets older.
“Thanks for providing a moral and practical compass so succinctly. Your book’s one-page-at-a-time format has provided me many “ah-ha” moments; those mostly being what the important stuff is I should give to my son as a father.”
“As a father of three daughters, I can attest that from diapers to wedding day, Harry’s keen insight is right on the money. I gave a book to my son-in-law, a proud new father of a beautiful daughter, and I noticed at our last visit that Harry’s book sits on the table next to Paul’s easy chair.”
“So they say, ‘Like father, like son.’ We know he is going to pick up all of my bad qualities. Hopefully, after reading this book he will pick up some of my good qualities, too.”
“With today’s chaotic society, parents truly need help in raising their children to avoid life’s temptations. Harry Harrison’s book is a real ‘guide’ for Dad’s on nuturing their sons and giving them the tools for a well-balanced outlook on life. It’s a must read.”
