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 20 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 10 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noah | 2/10/2014

    " Good book for any father of a daughter to read. I plan on reading it every five years or so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Brantley | 1/31/2014

    " Rather sober but necessary book on how a man should parent his daughter. At times the instructions seem far too difficult, overwhelming, and pessimistic. But the author sprinkles just enough positivity and encouragement to give a dad the strength to bond, communicate, love, and guide his daughter. I recommend this book since the author tackles really difficult topics head on. "
