Product Description

  • Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know
  • The essential characteristics and virtues of strong fathers - and how to develop them
  • Why girls want you to place restrictions on them (even though they'll complain when you do)
  • Why girls depend on the guidance of fathers through, and even beyond, their college years
  • Why girls need God - and how your faith, or lack thereof, will influence her


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

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

My relationship with my daughter is proof this book works!

After 3 years of applying Dr. Meg Meeker's principles, we have a beautiful relatioship. She is now going on 11 years old. We talk about everything now. I just finished taching her about sex and all that encompasses the topic thanks to this book.
