This book gives me the reasons and the strength to say what I think is the right thing to do for my daugthers and not what will make me their friend. A lot too religious for me but if you can extract the message under the religious references you will greatly benefit.
I absolutely cant wait to use what I've learned with my daughter! Keeping it to read again!!
Yes, In the world today a dad may feel like he has vrey little impact as dauthers grow.
This book will allow a refocus of your dad duties.
That daughters value dads even then they are at their worst.

I am a retired parish pastor who loves to learn the whats and whys of life. I love what we are learning about mindfulness and laughter.
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!
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!
