    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.

    Story

    There is a lot of valuable and enlightening information in the book Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters. I agree with most points Dr. Meeker attempts to make in this book, though I found it to be filled with Judea-Christian propaganda. If you are a "believer" in either of these faiths, there is plenty of confirmation bias and the "science" to back it as to relieve any cognitive dissonance you may have regarding your faith. If you possess critical thinking skill and courage to think for yourself, you will be able to trudge through the religious biased Bull Sh*t. If you are seeking an open-minded, intelligent approach, clinically sound science, and use of critical thinking skills throughout, you will have to look elsewhere.

    It is important to keep in mind Dr. Meeker is a pediatrician, not a psychologist, not a sociologist, and definitely not a scientist as she claims herself to be.

    Because I am wired toward gathering honest & useful information, I will re-listen to this book. Next time I will definitely skip chapter 13, and maybe 14 depending on how much religious propaganda I can stomach! I really do want to give credit to the valuable information contained in this book, unfortunately for me Meg's inability to restrain her religious fever can be extremely challenging and nauseating at best.

    I intimately understand Biblical & cultural indoctrination and their assumptions. Dr. Meg Meeker is well intended & indoctrinated, that is why she can't see the forest for the trees. The Bible and her cultural assumptions form the constructs and limitations of her paradigm. On the entrance of every mission should a sign be hung reading "Good Intentions Pave the Road to HELL!” Those who seek Religion seek Comfort, Not Truth! I highly recommend Dr. Meeker reads Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me), a non-fiction book by social psychologists Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson. You can find it here at Audible.com.
