    ITEM#: 10587386

    Meg Meeker, M.D., is the bestselling author of The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers; Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters; and Boys Should Be Boys. She has been a physician practicing pediatric and adolescent medicine, working with children and their parents, for more than thirty years. Dr. Meeker is the mother of four children and lives with her husband in northern Michigan.
    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

      I got this book for my husband who has had a hard time communicating and relating with our daughters. He hasn't read the book yet but was very appreciative and excited to read it. In his words "Anything to help is appreciated" I think this book will definitely give him some insight on how to react to certain situations and help him understand that a momentary action can last a lifetime when it comes the girls.

    • Peaked his intrest!
      Verified Purchase

      When I told my husband that I purchased a book for him to read on fatherhood; His reaction was not what I expected. He felt that no book could tell him how to raise a child...He would just learn through trial and error... :) So stubborn... He actually decided to read a few chapters of the book and he loved it! Said the topics are highly appropriate and that he will take a lot of the advice as our baby girl grows. We can't wait for her arrival!
