From the Inside Flap


The most important person in a young girl’s life? Her father.

Teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experience to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters’ lives.

Now Dr. Meeker, author of the critically acclaimed Epidemic: How Teen Sex Is Killing Our Kids, shows you how to strengthen--or rebuild--your bond with your daughter, and how to use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better.

Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for girls growing up into confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STDs, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse—and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters reveals:
  • The essential characteristics and virtues of strong fathers—and how to develop them

  • How daughters take cues from their fathers on everything from drug use, drinking, smoking, and having sex, to self-esteem, moodiness, and seeking attention from boys

  • Why girls want you to place restrictions on them (even though they’ll complain when you do)

  • How to become a hero to your daughter—and why she needs that more than anything

  • The one mistake fathers make that is the primary cause of girls "hooking up"

  • Why girls depend on the guidance of fathers through, and even beyond, their college years

  • Recipe for disaster: the notion that girls "need to make their own decisions and mistakes"

  • Why girls need God—and how your faith, or lack thereof, will influence her

  • How to communicate with your daughter—and how not to

  • True stories of "prodigal daughters"—and how their fathers helped bring them back

Dads, you are far more powerful than you think you are. Your daughters need the support that only fathers can provide—and if you are willing to follow Dr. Meeker’s advice on how to guide your daughter, to stand between her and a toxic culture, your rewards will be unmatched.

2.0 out of 5 stars Religion versus Spirituality Aug. 18 2013
By DR JFB
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked this book at the start...until the undertone of religion took over. It takes a good man to raise a good daughter. It does not take religion to raise a good daughter. I was raised Roman Catholic and I am still getting over it. You can believe in God without all the guilt and shame that religion (Catholicism in my case) brings. Be a good man, pay attention to your daughter, put family first...what else do you need to know?

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read guide for fathers of daughters Feb. 24 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Meg Meeker's short and clear book will give you targeted advice on how to be a good father. As the father of two girls, I found this book an easy read on first reading. And I return to it regularly, and every time I return I find myself reading large parts of it again as her advice is so practical.

A must read guide for fathers of daughters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take the good with the bad Sept. 9 2013
By ITS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with all self improvement books, you take what you want out of it.

The best thing about this book is the advice to never back down from the responsibilities of being a father to a daughter. Especially when they go through the teenage years, and they seem to want to be left alone. That's when daughters need fathers the most.

All the scare-mongering about sex, gets a bit tiring after being repeated on every single page of the book.
Also, the chapter about teaching your child about God in the strict Judeo-Christian method seems a bit shallow. Being a Christian myself, I could see that teaching spirituality and acceptance is a better way to go on this one.

Some of biggest problems we face in the world are caused by "My God is better than your God".
