Praise for The Dad Connection

The Dad Connection is a touchstone in my role as the father of an adopted son. Whenever I face a challenging moment as a parent, I turn to Scott’s practical advice for building a long-lasting relationship with my son. It works!”

William Lennertz

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.”

Scott Hanley’s book is an insightful account of parenting and loving. Above all, Scott teaches his children and us to love fully and without fear. The reader is enlightened as to the importance and path for raising children with a bond beyond words and action that lasts a lifetime, long after they leave our daily embrace.”

Lauren Tietsort, Director of Individual Giving, OMSI

What I loved about this book was the honesty that the author shares with his readers. He takes his own experiences with his two boys and makes the experience tangible and real and allows others to learn from his successes and from his failures. The book looks at how as a father you can work on making lasting connections with your children which should be the hope of every father (In my humble opinion).”

I picked up your book, Scott, with this morning’s coffee and thought how much my children and I have missed out on relationship because of circumstances, wondering if it’s too late, reading that it isn’t. In fact, I had long Saturday morning chats with them today and the focus of finding out what it is they need in their interesting, oft-confusing young lives facilitated our sharing and added a depth to our once-weekly talks that we aren’t always able to get to.  Thank you.”

Although this book was aimed toward parenting, the basis here would work in any and all relationships we involve ourselves in. The Dad Connection is a sincere manual of how one man learned to treasure and reach out to the ones he loved most. The lessons included in this book would go a long way in healing what is wrong with our society. Were we all to focus on loving and respecting those we interact with every day, what a wonderful world it could be.”
