Never underestimate the power of the father!

You may think you know all the tricks, but ten-year-old Alec Greven knows that when it comes to dads, you have to be on your toes. Some dads are strict, and some are easygoing, but they all have a good side and a bad side. What you get totally depends on Dad's mood and your attitude. So no matter how old you are or how tight you are with the big guy, trust Alec to help you get down to the bottom of what makes your dad tick.


There is an 80 percent chance your dad will say yes when your mom says no.

Video games calm Dad down and put him in a better mood.

If you think Dad is going to let you run wild, you are wrong!

Chapter One

Dad's Way

{Dads are softies with little girls because they are all cute and sweet.}

Dad's way is a little different from Mom's. Some kids think Dad's way makes it easier to have fun, like getting to play Wii a lot more.

But if you think Dad is an easygoing guy who's going to let you run wild, then you are wrong!

Dads expect you to work hard, because life isn't easy.

Dads are easier on little kids and harder on older kids.

Everyone knows that Dads are softies with little girls because they are all cute and sweet. You just have to live with that if you are a boy.

Tip: Dads let girls get away with a lot more stuff, except anything to do with dating or boys.

Dad also sweeps things under the rug more than Mom.

Sometimes he won't tell Mom if you did something wrong, like having bad behavior at the doctor's office, especially if you shaped it up.

Dad thinks about things longer than Mom, but in the end he usually follows Mom's opinion. If Mom is happy, then so is Dad.
