Format: Paperback
Radio producer and author Jay Payleitner is a popular speaker on parenting and marriage, and has four sons. His newest book, 52 THINGS SONS NEED FROM THEIR DADS, will have fathers from all walks of life thanking the good Lord that Payleitner took the time and energy required to compile such a comprehensive and categorically enthusiastic resource that is sure to have dads (and their sons) on the receiving end of such terrific advice.

Payleitner offers readers 52 different topics of interest from which to choose. These subjects include:

Learning to be a student of your son
Helping boys not to be dazzled by the digital age
Treating a son like a future dad
Making your son your hobby
Putting a positive spin on video games
Training boys to trust wisely
Helping your son not to choke in the clutch
Exposing your son to the dark side to protect him
Teaching your son to defend 21st-century chivalry
Insisting on your son coming to men’s events
Letting your son know when you’re disappointed in him
Helping boys see their truest value
Giving your son your blessing
Learning to say yes, so you can say no
Teaching your son to shake hands
Understanding that boys are always watching and learning
Passing the torch

Each of these timely and dynamically presented chapters offers men a lively and often comical story from Payleitner’s own life and his experiences raising his boys to manhood. He also includes a pertinent challenge for taking away the message of each topic and implementing it into daily life. Closing up the brief chapters are thoughtful quotes by various well-known personages from throughout the ages.

Somebody just took the time to write it down. The shortcomings we saw in our own fathers, the times remembered and cherished with our dad - we know what they are. Yet, we continue to make those same mistakes with our sons. We fail to make 'guy time' with our little man. Sometimes, hearing that we're all having the same doubts and troubles makes it excusable, but we know deep down it's not ok to skip that soccer practice or let the iPod be on at dinner. Deep down, we all want a stronger family unit and as the Dad, it starts with us.

I highly recommend reading Mr Payleitner's book, but even more important - follow his advice. Opportunities pass by every day and they're gone forever. Yes - forever.

Today, is a 'guys day' at our household. Who knows? It could be our last opportunity.

I've picked up a few books over the last 6 years, but never made it past page 30 in any of them. That is, until this book. As a new father I was searching--not for answers, but for the strength to get through when I simply don't have the answers. That's a tough thing for a dad, or any man. Jay does a fantastic job of inspiring and teaching how to PRACTICE and become the best God-centered father that you can be. I plan on going back and reading this book at least once per year so I don't forget any of his great ideas. Thanks Jay!

As a father of two younger sons (7 &4, with #3 on the way) I thought this was a book filled with valuable insight and good principles. Some of the book simply reflects upon Payleitner's triumphs and tragedies while raising his own sons. Some of it takes biblical principles into account in the "things." This is a quick, easy read, with the "things" broken down into easily understandable lessons for fathers. This would be a good weekly book to use for a men's study group at church or work, for those who want to better themselves as fathers and raise good, respectable, godly young men. Very refreshing.

Seems like Mr. Payleitner is really reaching and stretching here. I imagine he's trying to come up with more stuff because he was asked and paid good money to write more. He's ran out of material and seems to be blowing a lot of hot air in this book. I think he's a great guy, I just wish I could get my money back on this one.
