Teen health expert Meg Meeker, M.D., documents the powerful influence dads have on daughters. The most crucial factor for girls growing up into confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. Such fathers preempt eating disorders, failing grades, STDs, unwed pregnancy, and substance abuse--and promote academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.

I enjoyed reading this book, as it offers fathers a look into many of the issues that daughters face while growing up that men never experience. It is a great way to get to know your daughter more. I can say that it improved my relationship with my daughter, because it helped me see just what kind of a role I play in her life. Men never understand what the impact of a father is on a daughter, because they have never been in that role. The expectation of men of their fathers is a different thing altogether.

While I felt that the author could have tried to leave out Christian content in favour of a more neutral perspective, I value her insight as a mother, a daughter and a female doctor.

I think that this book can help any father learn more about their daughter and the influences in society around their girl child. I recommend the book to any father of a daughter.

This is a MUST read for men raising daughters whether in a family unit or as a single father. Our society does not acknowledge the vital role the father plays in a girls development and throughout her life. Dr. Meeker's book places the father's leadership and guidance as a top priority. This is the perfect gift to give a new father of a daughter or at any point in her life. Hopefully, by the time she starts grade school. I can highly recommend this book for women with daughters as well.

A book that every father, who has a daughter, must read!

Your daughter’s attitude toward herself comes directly from you. Her expectations, her ambitions, and her assessment of her own capabilities all come from what you believe- what you say and what you do. As a father, you have to ask yourself what sort of woman you want your daughter to become.
