Publisher Comments:

The most important person in a young girls life? Her father.

Teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experience to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters lives.

Now Dr. Meeker, author of the critically acclaimed Epidemic: How Teen Sex Is Killing Our Kids, shows you how to strengthen--or rebuild--your bond with your daughter, and how to use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better.

Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for girls growing up into confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STDs, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse—and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters reveals:

  • The essential characteristics and virtues of strong fathers—and how to develop them
  • How daughters take cues from their fathers on everything from drug use, drinking, smoking, and having sex, to self-esteem, moodiness, and seeking attention from boys
  • Why girls want you to place restrictions on them (even though theyll complain when you do)
  • How to become a hero to your daughter—and why she needs that more than anything
  • The one mistake fathers make that is the primary cause of girls "hooking up"
  • Why girls depend on the guidance of fathers through, and even beyond, their college years
  • Recipe for disaster: the notion that girls "need to make their own decisions and mistakes"
  • Why girls need God—and how your faith, or lack thereof, will influence her
  • How to communicate with your daughter—and how not to
  • True stories of "prodigal daughters"—and how their fathers helped bring them back

Dads, you are far more powerful than you think you are. Your daughters need the support that only fathers can provide—and if you are willing to follow Dr. Meekers advice on how to guide your daughter, to stand between her and a toxic culture, your rewards will be unmatched.

Synopsis:

Father-Daughter Bonding

With nearly thirty years of counseling girls, teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker explains why girls benefit from an active father figure—the man who must be for his daughter both leader and protector, counsel and spiritual guide.

From cradling his newborn to walking her down the aisle, a father must relish his paramount responsibility—guiding the course of his daughters life.

Learn how to strengthen—or rebuild—your relationship to better both your life and hers in the bestselling Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know.

Synopsis:

Using the best medical research, experience from her own practice, and numerous interviews, Dr. Meeker shows why "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters" is not a slogan--it's a necessity.

Dr. Meeker issues a strong challenge to all fathers who have daughters. while offering insightful observations gained through experience as a pediatrician, Meeker addresses the role of a father in the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical maturation of his daughter.

Meeker emphasizes the importance of fathers being involved with the lives of their daughters reinforced with statistical and anecdotal evidence. dads who check out of the life of their daughter can doom her to a life seeking approval from others which only their father can fulfill -- scary stuff, yet encouraging to those who want to make a difference but don't know how. it's never to late to love your daughter right.
