Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In today's increasingly complicated world, it's often difficult for parents to connect with their daughters — and especially so for fathers. In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the ten secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life — and his own — for the better. Inside you'll discover:
  • the essential virtues of strong fathers — and how to develop them
  • the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex
  • the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests)
  • the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter
  • the biggest mistake a dad can make — and the ramifications
  • the fact that girls actually depend on their dads' guidance into adulthood
  • steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes
  • ways in which a father's faith — or lack thereof — will influence his daughter
  • essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl's life
  • true stories of "prodigal daughters" — and how their fathers helped to bring them back

Dads, you are far more powerful than you think — and if you follow Dr. Meeker's advice, the rewards will be unmatched.

"Reassuring and challenging... a helpful road map for concerned fathers [that] tackles difficult issues." —National Review

"A touching, illuminating book that will prove valuable to all of us who are fortunate enough to have been blessed with daughters." —Michael Medved, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host, author of Right Turns

"Dr. Meeker's conclusions are timely, relevant, and often deeply moving. No one interested in what girls experience growing up in our culture today — and the impact that parents, especially fathers, have on the experience — can afford to miss reading this book." —Armand M. Nicholi, Jr., M.D., professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
