Youre there to be a dad.
Schirripa serves up the heartwarming and hilarious stories of how he and his wife navigated the wild waters of parenthood: from the moment the tough guys heart melted when he held his first-born in his arms to what he felt (and did) the time he caught someone looking at his teenage daughters butt.
He lays out all the rules for being a Big Daddy someone who is strong, devoted, and always looking out for his kids best interests, even when that means not being the coolest dad on the block. Overprotective? Maybe. Willing to tone it down? Absolutely not. *Big Daddys Rules* is filled with tales of his over-the-top yet heartfelt parenting styleconfronting bad teachers, staring down boyfriends, and explaining just how crazy youre allowed to get if you catch your kid drinking (hint: really, really crazy).
With a mixture of street-smart bravado and selfeffacing humor, Schirripa pulls no punches as he delivers his no-bull stance on what it takes to raise kids today. Hes uproariously funny, but Schirripa isnt just cracking jokes here; this is also a call to action for dads to return to common-sense parenting and reclaim their role as protector and holder of values to be passed down. **
