What happens when a world-famous tough guy takes on the
toughest job of all— becoming a father?
the world of the Big Daddy.
Steve Schirripa is known
for his star turns on The Sopranos and The Secret
Life of the American Teenager, but in his own life he’s
the father of two daughters of his own—and a self-confessed
human volcano. In Big Daddy’s Rules, Schirripa tells
all and brings a welcome dose of old-school advice (and
new-school humor) to the parenting wars. “You’re not there
to be a friend,” Schirripa says bluntly. “You’re there to be
Schirripa serves up the heartwarming and
hilarious stories of how he and his wife navigated the wild
waters of parenthood: from the moment the tough guy’s heart
melted when he held his first-born in his arms to what he
felt (and did) the time he caught someone looking at his
teenage daughter’s butt.
He lays out all the rules
for being a Big Daddy— someone who is strong, devoted, and
always looking out for his kids’ best interests, even when
that means not being the coolest dad on the block.
Overprotective? Maybe. Willing to tone it down? Absolutely
not. Big Daddy’s Rules is filled with tales of his
over-the-top yet heartfelt parenting style—confronting bad
teachers, staring down boyfriends, and explaining just how
crazy you’re allowed to get if you catch your kid drinking
(hint: really, really crazy).
With a mixture of
street-smart bravado and selfeffacing humor, Schirripa pulls
no punches as he delivers his no-bull stance on what it
takes to raise kids today. He’s uproariously funny, but
Schirripa isn’t just cracking jokes here; this is also a
call to action for dads to return to common-sense parenting
and reclaim their role as protector and holder of values to
be passed down.
