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

I am a wife and mom, and after reading this book I realized just how vitally important the role of a father has in a daughter's life. Caused me to want to support my husband more fully. Helps me be more determined to resolve conflict in marriage as I realized how much his presence is needed in our home. Initially I checked this book out at our library; after reading it, I bought it to give to my husband for Father's Day. I want him to read it to reinforce to him all the things he is ALREADY doing that are so important as well as ways to deepen the bond between father and daughter. A book I want to keep on our shelf for reading and rereading.

Written by a woman medical doctor, this straight-forward book has been an excellent resource to my husband and I in helping us to understand how daughters are not only greatly influenced by, but also receive their identity through the role of their fathers. It is never too late to begin the process of becoming the father your daughter wants and needs you to be. Easy read-usable examples-practical. Had great positive results-Highly Recommended!

Reads a little too sarcastic and silly for my tastes. Would have appreciated more serious text, stories and examples.
