Overview
Citing the pivotal role of a father in a daughter's psychological, physical, and spiritual health, a national speaker on teen issues identifies and describes ten virtues that the author believes can be effectively emulated by today's fathers to promote healthy father-daughter relations and overall well-being in young women. Reprint.

Publishers Description
In today's increasingly complicated world, it's often difficult for parents to connect with their daughters-and especially so for fathers. In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the ten secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life-and his own-for the better. Inside you'll discover:
- the essential virtues of strong fathers-and how to develop them
- the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex
- the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests)
- the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter
- the biggest mistake a dad can make-and the ramifications
- the fact that girls actually depend on their dads' guidance into adulthood
- steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes
- ways in which""a father's faith-or lack thereof-will influence his daughter
- essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl's life
- true stories of "prodigal daughters"-and how their fathers helped to bring them back
Dads, you are far more powerful than you think-and if you follow Dr. Meeker's advice, the rewards will be unmatched.

-Michael Medved, nationally syndicated radio talk-show host, author of "Right Turns"
"Dr. Meeker's conclusions are timely, relevant, and often deeply moving. No one interested in what girls experience growing up in our culture today-and the impact that parents, especially fathers, have on the experience-can afford to miss reading this book."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
First time I have disliked a book enough to write a review  May 24, 2010
This book is more about the author's politics then about how to be a better father. While she and I are on the same side politically, I bought the book to get parenting advice and not hear the author rant on about conservative viewpoint.
I found it to be a huge waste of time, with really no insight to how I can be a better parent for my daughter.
 
Fantastic Book  May 19, 2010
There are a lot of comments relating this to conservative political views, but I think anyone with a daughter, or a son, can agree that you desire your children not to take drugs, have sex at an early age or make unnecessary blunders in life if you can help. It's not politics, it's your child. Great book.
 
Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, 10 secrets Fathers should know  May 16, 2010
Very poor content. Based on opinions not facts and research. Stopped reading book after 1st chapter. Ddint' even give it to my husband to read it.
 
Right-Wing Flack  May 15, 2010
The info in this book is OK, but if you're not into the whole family values hypocrisy and right-wing talk show hosts it might not be your cup of tea.

The back cover of the book has a bold print, highlighted recommendation at the top by Michael Medved-- a closeted gay hypocrite who hosts a right-wing hate radio show and writes numerous hate filled right-wing screeds about politics.

I wish the author had decided to keep her politics out of my parenting. I likewise wish that everyone could see the back cover and know that right-wing hypocrites are pushing this 250 page coaster.

Some of Michael Medved's other memorable quotes that are NOT on the back of this book:

In 2006 refers to the children's film happy Feet has" homosexual subtext" wrapped in a movie.

In 2008 intercuts audio from Adolf Hitler with into a democrat's speech to the DNC

In 2009 referred to Barack Obama speaking to a group of school children about the importance of education as "abuse" and "indoctrination" into Obama's "cult of personality."

This is the man the author chose to prominently feature as a selling point for her book on... wait for it, parenting!

So, if you want to take parenting advice from a guy who believes democrats are nazis, that the President of Untied States should be barred from telling kids to stay in school, and sees "homosexual subtext" in Disney movies this is your guy. This is your book.
 
Ideological - Empty Calories  Apr 30, 2010
This book approaches the subject of parenting ideologically. Meeker spends a lot of time focusing on the dangers of exposing kids to anything relating to sex. She says she's not squeamish about the subject, but I can't see any other reason she would attribute so many problems to sex.

At one point she even says a child at a certain age is capable of understanding the basics of heterosexual sexuality but not homosexual sexuality. She said this as if the scientific inquiry revealed this. This reminds me of 19th century craniometry: She is starting with a spiritual/political opinion and finding data to support it. When she talks about brain development of girls not being complete until their mid twenties, it really reminded me of phrenology pseudoscience. Science, she says, confirms that women can't think for themselves even as young adults and they need a clear-thinking man looking out for them.

It is amazing how she says parents should categorically forbid 17-year-old girls from going to certain events, even though they are months away (in the free world) from being able to go where they please and to do what they please. Assuming the reader lives in a free country, the main goal should be to get kids able to make decisions for themselves WELL BEFORE age 18.

Someone could write a leftwing version of the book that carries on about kids being traumatized by consumerism, environmental pollution, religious dogma, and the ideology behind this book. I guess someone could read such a book and pat himself on the back while reading about how science ostensibly backs his political beliefs. But science isn't supposed to comment on these things. People looking for a parenting book aren't looking for commentary of this sort either. They want facts that transcend ideology.

It gets two stars because the non-ideological parts are good. It's only two stars, though, because most of it is ideological. Parenting is so much more important than politics; it's unfortunate Meeker can't stay away from politics for more than a page or two.

I would not have minded if the book had attempted to convince the reader of the merits of rightwing ideology. This book, however, assumes the reader shares the author's political ideology. It's completely useless to someone just looking for the facts. I question how useful it would be to someone who agrees with her ideologically. Do you really want just empty calories telling you that science backs your ideology, the world's problems are caused by people who disagree with you, and the solutions come from people who agree with you?
