Calling all fellow Dads with daughters out there..
If you haven’t already, please check out Dr. Meg Meeker‘s excellent book Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know.
I read a lot of books, and lately, for some strange reason, a lot of parenting books, many of which may be quite rewarding but don’t make it on my ‘must-own’ list- that subset of books that are so chock full of fantastic insight that one read doesn’t do them justice. This book is one of those I need to keep on my shelf (or in my Kindle) because I know I will be returning to it again and again over the course of the years I have with my girls.
I think there is much in this book that we as Dads already know in our hearts; it is good to hear it validated by a professional who is ‘out in the field’ dealing with these issues as they impact the lives of her patients. So, if you’re like me and you tend to require evidence to back up your gut feelings- here it is.
