Father of two daughters, bestselling author, and a star of The Sopranosand The Secret Life of the American Teenager,Steven Schirripa brings a welcome dose of humor and old-school advice to the parenting wars. Steven Schirripa knew he was in trouble the moment he held his firstborn daughter in his arms. He realized that he was now in the role of a Big Daddysomeone who is strong, loyal, and always looking out for his kids' best interest (even if it isn't always the popular decision). Overprotective? Maybe. Willing to tone it down? Absolutely not. With a mixture of bravado and self-effacing humor, Schirripa delivers his categorically antiquated, but always hilarious tough-guy stance on what it takes to raise kids today. Big Daddy's Rulesis filled with often hilarious stories of his over-the-top parenting stylestaring his daughter's new boyfriend down, freaking out after finding a birth control pack in the bathroom, and paying a visit to a teacher who made a less than appropriate comment to his youngest daughter. But Schirripa isn't just cracking jokes herethis is a call to action for dads toreturn to commonsense parenting and reclaim their role as protector and holder of values to be passed down.
