About The Book

When my daughter, Rachel, was five, I was the leader of a mothers’ group called “HOME”: Helping Our Mothers Excel. One of my favorite memories was watching Rachel climb up the ladder of her bunk bed one night, whispering under her breath, “I don’t know why you’re the leader of Helping Our Mothers Excel!” I leaned at the doorway of her room thinking, “I don’t know either.”

Is there a perfect, universal method to raising children? No. Because no parents are perfect and all families are different.

Just for fun, I googled: “How to write an instructional manual.” Most articles suggested starting at square one: Assume the audience has zero knowledge of the subject matter and use only as many words as necessary. That is how we came up with the format of the book: 21 notes and 88 pages short, a book fathers love to read!

I hope you enjoy reading Got Kids? Take Notes as much as I enjoyed writing it. It is indeed a labor of love for all the families out there.
