I really enjoyed this book and felt empowered as a father to not have a mentality of, "Well, my daughter is a girl so my wife should handle most of the parenting," which is a big issue I see when talking to other fathers with daughters. The statistics help support the importance of a father in the life of his daughter.

The author uses a lot of real life stories to share practical advice. I did feel as though a couple of the stories seemed fabricated from the dialogue she uses for them, so I needed to get passed that and apply the message of the stories.

My biggest take away is that a father CANNOT be passive. This really goes as being a parent in general, but she brings this point home by the end of the book.

I'm glad I read it and would suggest all fathers with daughters to read it. ( )

Although there are a few parts to this book that I do not agree with or do not like how she words it (especially in relation to spirituality), I think it is a book that all fathers of daughters should read for at least a starting point. Some very shocking statistics. Overall, pretty good book. ( )

some obvious points, a lot of common sense but provides positive reinforcement and good to see a lot of it on paper ( )

Book description
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, STD’s, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse-and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.
