    "A must for any father of daughters"

    Listening to this book puts numerous reasons why I need to get more involved with my daughter and want other Fathers to do the same. many times I caught myself tearing up, even though I am not a very emotional.

    "Dads - READ THIS!!!"

    Yes, this book is a great resource for both moms and dads, but ESPECIALLY for dads of girls. Dr. Dobson does a great job unpacking the CRUCIAL role dads play in the development of their daughters. For the sake of your daughters, READ THIS BOOK!!!

    "Definitely worth a listen!"

    Couldn't put it down. Are you looking for a book to better help you understand your daughters and their development from a Christian perspective? Then look no further. Dobson takes the reader through the developmental stages that girl go through as well as provided ways to avoid the pitfalls that plague so many young people today as a result of popular culture. He gives parents the tool to successfully raise their children.

    "Game changer"

    Living in such a fast paced society the values, standards and moral foundations that this book addresses still needs to be applied. Thank you a thousand times, Dr. Dobson.

    "I couldn't get past the conservative views"

    a book of conservative ranting. I couldn't get very far. I disagree that no matter what a female decides to wear, that is not an invitation for rape. .. or that abortions are used as birth control.

    Story
    "Oh Jesus...prepare yourselves for a sermon."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different book would have been a good start. Or an author with any sense of perspective.


    Has Bringing Up Girls turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely yes - I would have never expected to get a lecture about everything going to hell from a book I bought on Audible.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James C. Dobson?

    James Earl Jones would have been interesting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get my money back please?
