Drawing on her thirty years' experience practicing pediatric and adolescent medicine, teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker explains why an active father figure is maybe the single most important factor in a young woman's development. In this invaluable guide, Meeker shows how a father can be both counsel and protector for his daughter as she grows into a spiritually and mentally strong young woman. From cradling his newborn to walking her down the aisle, a father must relish his paramount responsibility-guiding the course of his daughter's life. Meeker reveals - how a man can become a "strong father" - how a father's guidance influences every part of a woman's life, from her self-respect to her perspective on drugs, alcohol, and sex - how to lay down ground rules that are respected without creating distance in your relationship with your daughter - why you need to be your daughter's hero - the mistakes most fathers make and their serious consequences - how to help daughters make their own good decisions and avoid disastrous mistakes - how a father's faith will influence his daughter's spiritual development - how to get through to your daughter, even during her toughest don't-talk-to-me years - true stories of daughters who were on the wrong path-and how their fathers helped to bring them back. Learn how to grow, strengthen, or rebuild your relationship with your daughter to better both your life and hers in the bestselling Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know.

I enjoyed reading this book, as it offers fathers a look into many of the issues that daughters face while growing up that men never experience. It is a great way to get to know your daughter more. I can say that it improved my relationship with my daughter, because it helped me see just what kind of a role I play in her life. Men never understand what the impact of a father is on a daughter, because they have never been in that role. The expectation of men of their fathers is a different thing altogether.

While I felt that the author could have tried to leave out Christian content in favour of a more neutral perspective, I value her insight as a mother, a daughter and a female doctor.

I think that this book can help any father learn more about their daughter and the influences in society around their girl child. I recommend the book to any father of a daughter.

This is a MUST read for men raising daughters whether in a family unit or as a single father. Our society does not acknowledge the vital role the father plays in a girls development and throughout her life. Dr. Meeker's book places the father's leadership and guidance as a top priority. This is the perfect gift to give a new father of a daughter or at any point in her life. Hopefully, by the time she starts grade school. I can highly recommend this book for women with daughters as well.

Your daughter’s attitude toward herself comes directly from you. Her expectations, her ambitions, and her assessment of her own capabilities all come from what you believe- what you say and what you do. As a father, you have to ask yourself what sort of woman you want your daughter to become.
