Rules for dating my daugther
I am not a "devoted" Christian (as in go to church every Sunday), but my beliefs, values, and morals stem from the foundation of the Catholic religion.I do believe in God, I do pray, and I do ask for His help from time to time.Mike Dawson is the author of three books: Freddie & Me In Rules for Dating My Daughter, Mike Dawson uses visual storytelling to offer original, compelling, and funny commentary on fatherhood, gun rights, the gender of toys, and staying sane in a world where school shootings and Disney princesses get equal billing.Mike Dawson is the author of three books: Freddie & Me: A Coming-of-Age (Bohemian) Rhapsody, Troop 142, and Angie Bongiolatti.I would just like to provide my own opinions about some of the issues he adverts in the graphic novel.Therefore, this review comes from respect and good intentions. I am 100% responsible for not thorou I need to disclose first and foremost that this review is just what it is.I've seen spoiled and bratty kids scream and cry because they didn't get the present they wanted.
