    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.

    Paul says: "My Daughter means everything to me, now I know why"
    "Tears and inspiration"

    Story
    Where does Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm one chapter in and I'm already inspired, terrified, and been brought to tears. I'm not sure I can listen to this book at work and get anything done. Unlike other books it won't sit quietly in the background and be my white noise. It's perched on my arm like my beautiful daughters and I cannot ignore the message.

    I think also of my wife and her childhood and wonder how different she might be had she grown up with my father, or a better version of hers. He's not a horrible man now, so there's still hope for their relationship, but life wasn't easy and sometimes it shows. I'm inclined to send him a copy, and probably will.

    Looking forward to the rest of the book...
