Format: Paperback
It always seems to me there is an endless supply of parenting books available. Being the father of four girls, Be the Dad She Needs You to Be grabbed my attention from the many other titles I know are available. In his book Dr. Kevin Leman lays out his position on how important fathers are in the lives of daughters. The topics he discusses range from understanding birth order, how girls relate compared to guys, discipline ideas, to sexuality, right through the teenage years. Dr. Leman reminds us that we only have so much time and we want to help our girls be strong, confident and healthy in all areas of their lives.

Reading the book I found myself overall agreeing with much of what I read. In many ways this book summarizes in one spot what I've heard elsewhere and seen elsewhere and adds in illustrations, examples, and at times, unique insights. I did find myself shaking my head a few times when he was describing what girls are like and birth order. Dr. Leman speaks in generalizations (how else can he address all the readers!) yet at times I felt disconnected from the generalizations - they didn't express my reality. There are a few spots where he uses the phrase 'guaranteed' and I can tell you those topics and approaches he speaks of, are not guaranteed. That said, his points are insightful, helpful, and for the vast majority will ring true.

Personally, the reminder and insights were a good tool for helping me review my approach to parenting, and also let me notice where I've slipped in areas I've been intentional in the past. It's always encouraging for my wife and I to hear stories of other families who have had success in their parenting, and reading this book provided that sort of encouragement to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better options available. Feb. 2 2016
By A. Van Lin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters is a much better book because it gives you actionable advice. This book is more of an autobiography of a good dad. For example, the conclusion of the book is about the author's birthday party, and how his children expressed their appreciation of how great a dad he is. Nothing else, which seems weird. I've taken plenty of notes from other books but didn't really take anything away from this one. No "aha" moments. Just common sense with some stereotypical stories thrown in.

1.0 out of 5 stars One giant brag fest of how awesome the writer is Jan. 10 2017
By Dave K - Published on Amazon.com
Format: MP3 CD Verified Purchase
One giant brag fest of how awesome the writer is. So many name dropping of celebrities he interviewed, his daughter was home coming queen, etc. Oldest daughter could read when she was 2. Summer home in new york, wife didn't work then when she did she owned a store. Goes on and on how great he is and how awesome his wife is How about you act like iust a regular person to gain our respect and not brag about how perfect your kids are and how rich you are?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an absolutely essential tool! June 8 2014
By InScope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Leman delivers again with a straightforward, down-to-earth, blueprint for understanding and strengthening the bond between a father and daughter(s). He presents concepts with solid examples, gets to the point quickly, and infuses each section with the kind of warmhearted humor that keeps the pages turning.

If you have a daughter, don't miss out - you will walk away from this read with a whole new understanding about the most important relationship you'll ever have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to change Dec 13 2014
By dad34 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've recently gone through a tough custody battle and received custody of my daughter. Before this I was the good dad and had lots of fun with my kids. This book has revitalized me and gave me the inspiration I have been looking for to be that good dad again and reconnect with my kids. I Am going to read this until I've got it memorized and apply to my life.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Every Dad with Daughters Sept. 6 2014
By Fred Flintstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm about 3/4ths of the way through this book, and I have to tell you, this is an absolute must for every father with one or more daughters. Dr. Leman provides a lot of priceless insight into raising your daughter(s), no matter what age they are when you read this book. Mine is an adult now, and I think I've done a pretty good job, but there are still some things to learn from this book. I wish I had bought it years ago. Dads, you need this book.
