Being a father, and not knowing how to be the best dad to your daughter can often be hard to figure out. This author is great at giving a father all the info and tips on how to be the best dad in your daughters life. Our daughters will use us dads as their template to choose there future boyfriends and husband. If you want to be informed and given some great advise on how to be a father, this is the book for you.
Probably geared towards teenagers who are about to have kids. The book is full of common sense and stories that are supposed to scare you into listening to the advice.
I dont think i would listed to this author, again.
Disappointment. A bridged version of this book would be better as long as it is about an hour long.
There are much better titles out there. I just wish they had been available on audio book format.
I am a parish pastor who loves to learn. Listening to books is easier for me in my busy life.
I loved the focus to protect daughters from a culture that does care about the emotional health of the next generation. Morals and character matters in our world.
Good book to read and share with fathers who care about the physical, emotional welfare of their children!
meg meeker is excellent cant say enough other then my relationship w/ my daughter
is and will be stronger and better.
I would (will) listen again. To be a good father means always working to be better. This book helps remind me of the little things I can do that I forget so easily by being swept up in the pace of our world today.
I am shocked at how oblivious (conditioned) we have become to the over-sexualization of nearly everything in our society without regard to to the mental impact to our children.
No, I have not.
I will remember to not allow myself to "pull-away" from my daughters as they reach teenage years (and beyond) even if they push back since I now realize in their minds it is a test of my commitment to them.
My daughter is about to turn 9 and enter the 4th grade soon. While we have a pretty good relationship, I knew I had many areas I could improve on. Developing a closer relationship with her and really getting serious about setting the standard for her for her future husband really motivated me to listen to this book.
There were many great lessons and excellent stories - success stories and cautionary tales of fathers who messed up and fathers who turned it around. The book has motivated me and inspired me to be a better father and a more Godly father. On a minor note, the reader is a bit stiff, not very animated but not bad either...but the content should definitely keep you going.
I have put to practice some of the advice and within 1-2 weeks our relationship had already improved, and my wife has noticed as well and is very happy about it. It has blessed me and I look to continually be the father she needs, wants and deserves. I highly recommend this book!
This book will address any doubts about how much us Fathers mean to our daughters. I know understand with more details what I already knew inside my heart. What I do and say say to my daughters matters and matters a lot.
The stories from the Dr's practice are earthshaking and they opened my eyes to what other Fathers feel are do.
I will recommend this book to all Dads of all ages. Thank you!
Overall very interesting, informing and enlightening. Meg Meeker repeats herself quite a bit though. The book could have been written in a shorter version without loosing quality.
Fathers seem to be far more important and we do not have to give in to popular culture if we beleive our way is the better, wiser one to go. Also, kids are kids and we as parents have to make good, informed decisions with love and communicate them in a loving, caring way.
This is a must read especially for dad's like me who are pushovers when it comes to their girls. Coming from a father who loves to spoil his daughters, this book was very eye-opening as far as explaining the importance of being strict but loving. There is lots of good information in this book that might save dad's the trouble later on in life if he reads/listens to it before his girls grow up.
