Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know

Publisher: Regnery Publishing • 2007 • 288 pages

That’s right – and 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, she shows you how to strengthen — or rebuild – your bond with your daughter, and 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 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, STD’s, 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 virtues and characteristics 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
  • How to “be the man you want her to marry”
  • 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”
  • How fathers act as a check on female emotions — which can lead to trouble
  • Why girls depend on the guidance of fathers through, and even beyond, their colleges years
  • Debunked: the dangerous notion that girls “need to make their own decisions and mistakes”
  • Why girls need God – and how your faith (or lack of it) will influence her deeply
  • Contraceptives and depression: the alarming links
  • Communicating with your daughter: do’s and don’ts
  • True stories of “prodigal daughters” – and how their fathers helped bring them back
