Publisher's Summary

Parents have never had a tougher job than now. Our culture bombards our daughters with unhealthy role models, misleads them about the consequences of early sexual activity, and even adds to the confusion of adolescences by encouraging them to question their “gender”. 

Meg Meeker has been a pediatrician for more than 30 years, is a mother and a grandmother, and has seen it all. She knows what makes for strong, happy, healthy young women - and what puts our daughters at risk. Combining that experience with her famous common sense, she explains the 11 steps that will help your daughter - whether she’s a toddler or a troubled teen - to achieve her full human potential. 

In this book, you will learn: 

  • The four biggest questions every daughter has - and that you must answer
  • Why it's the quality, not the quantity, of your daughter's friends that matters
  • The essential, complementary roles that mothers and fathers play
  • The dangers of social media - and how to help your daughter navigate them
  • What every daughter needs to know about God
  • Why depression is often a "sexually transmitted disease"
  • How to launch your daughter into successful womanhood

If you have a daughter, and worry about her future, you need Dr. Meg's advice.

Should had read the details instead of the title.

The narrator conveyed the author's voice very well.
I'd liked that most of it was relevant, but hated the prolife and anti-gender identity viewpoints from the Catholic author.
She'd claim there are medical studies that contradicts the growing mainstream movement including the choice to be gender neutral, but it wasn't presented with one reference.
I truly appreciated her insight as a mother and stories she'd shared. It made me relook my relationship with my daughters and where I need to strengthen.

Meg meeker 2nd book

Well, I started to read Meg Meeker’s books for parenting purposes about last year, as a rookie dad with my first daughter I look to learn for different sources and take what works from me. This is my second book from Meg and I really enjoyed both of them.

Even that there ir a chapter dedicated to feminists, which ideas I don’t really share, most of the book share tips to raise my daughter through principles which are share by my culture and family like religion and holistic approaches.

For this kind of books I usually create a pocket summary’s to reach out when I need it.

Looking forward to next books!

Timely advice to read and re-read

As the father of a delightfully independent and outgoing 5 year old girl, I really appreciated this advice, especially considering the times we live in. There is a daily barrage that threatens to derail our daughters’ development, and Dr. Meeker uses case after case to clearly and persuasively illuminate the appropriate path and the pitfalls we can travel into as parents.

I plan to keep this on the “shelf” and re-read as my girl grows into a young lady. Highly recommend.

Relevant for this season!

Dr.Meeker touched on many relevant issues that our daughters are encountering today. Great book! I read it with my daughters, it was a great ice breaker and many interesting topics for conversations.

Must read for any mom who want to go against the tide of this culture. Love it! Thank You Dr.Meeker.
