    "Want to be a better dad? Find another book."

    This book is more about the author's politics then about how to be a better father. While she and I are on the same side politically, I bought the book to get parenting advice and not hear the author rant on about conservative viewpoint.
    I found it to be a huge waste of time, with really no insight to how I can be a better parent for my daughter.

    "Mixed"

    Valuable advice if you can get past the constant right wing Christian moral espousement.

    "Some good advice...but a little too preachy."

    God is mentioned several times in the first half of the book, and throughout you clearly get a sense of the authors conservatism. You'll be 100% confirmed at hour 3 -min 5 - sec 10 -chapter 6. when the bible verses are read.

    While a considerate amount of the advice is good, it comes across very preachy by the 3rd and 4th chapter.

    If you're a single parent be prepared to be insulted...you've already failed you daughter in this authors eyes.

    Story
    "Informative, but has a religious undertone."
    Would you listen to Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters again? Why?

    She uses scientific and medical statistics to back up her views. Although I find in a little strange that she speaks as if she is a psychiatrist or therapist when her doctorate is in pediatrics.


    Any additional comments?

    I find it insulting when self-development authors tell me that I or my children need a religious upbringing and a belief in a “Higher Power” in order to be happy or a productive member of society. She practically said that my daughter would end up in a cult if I do not teach her about god, are you serious?!
    “If you don’t give guidance to your daughter, she’ll come up with answers of her own, which means your authority will be replaced with someone else’s. This is how cults are formed.”
    This is yet another ignorant theist who does not understand atheism.

    "Just Plain Misses"

    The author claims to have the clinical evidence and research to support her ideas. She has is research showing the importance of two parent homes, but nothing that supports her model of fatherhood. As best I can tell her own clinical experience is from being a pediatrician. While she has seen a lot, she really doesn't have enough to prove out her point about what roles father played her patients problems or recovery. Even her anecdotal cases lack the full background and recovery process to prove out her point about her model of fatherhood. Further she goes on warning the reader against "all the pop psychologists out there." Ironically, she is one of the pop psychologists she is us warning about. Essentially this is book about Meg Meekers opinions with very little supporting evidence.

    Some of her ideas are good. The big one fathers can have a significant influence over their daughters confidence and self image by focusing on aspects of her personality and accomplishments rather than her looks. But many of her other ideas seem skewed by her personal beliefs and her own relationship with her father (rather than clinical research as the book claims).

    There are better books out there from more knowledgeable and experienced authors.

    "Conservative Christian Crap"
    Would you try another book from Meg Meeker and/or Francisco Rivela?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Meg Meeker’s story?

    Overtly Christian messages


    What three words best describe Francisco Rivela’s performance?

    ?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters?

    Say what? Am I criticizing the performance or the book? I don't get it.


    Any additional comments?

    If you think we live in a 'Toxic Culture', you should probably listen to this book. If you think we live in a 'Free Society' then help me look for books on family relationships without the overt politicism and judgement that this, and most of them, display.

    "Excessively HEAVY HANDED"

    This book is repetitive and offensive. There are ZERO redeeming qualities I can offer. DO NOT BUY!
