Publisher's Summary

A call to dads to step up to the plate to become the loving, actively engaged father that a daughter needs for life and relational success. The relationship that matters most to your daughter isn't the one with her mother - it's the one with you, Dad. Her self-esteem, choices, behavior, character, and even her ideas about or choice of a marriage partner are all directly tied to you, as the most important representative to her of the male species. In Be the Dad She Needs You to Be Dr. Kevin Leman, internationally-known psychologist, New York Times best-selling author, and father of four daughters, will show you not only how to get the fathering job done and done well, but also how to:

  • Make each daughter feel unique, special, and valued
  • Discipline the right way...when it's needed
  • Talk turkey about what guys are really thinking
  • Keep the critical eye at bay
  • Wave the truce flag when females turn your family room into a battleground
  • Set your daughter up for life and relational success

With some effort on your part (and very few dollars), you can gain the kind of relationship you dream of with your daughter - one based on mutual love and respect. The simple yet profound suggestions will transform you into the kind of man your daughter needs...for a lifetime.

    "Funny, Inspiring, and Challenging"
    What made the experience of listening to Be the Dad She Needs You to Be the most enjoyable?

    I listened to this entire book on a Saturday working on my landscaping duties. It made me stop every couple of chapters and wipe some of tears from my eyes. Very inspiring for all fathers who or will have daughters. Highly recommend this book. The humor intertwined makes it a very enjoyable read.

    "Started out ok but went sideways."

    Mr Lemans makes several good points but then it turns a bit religious for me. I would recommend this to religious people.
