Customer Reviews

While this is a good book, one thing I noticed is the lack of biblical references.
Stacey Patrick
My husband couldn't put it down and I know our daughters will benefit from Dr. Leman's great insight into this important relationship between Dads and daughters.

One of the most important relationships a daughter will ever have is the relationship with her father.

I bought this book for my husband for Father's Day and thought,...I will just read a few pages....Sure enough I read the whole thing! I'm glad I did. I think it will be motivating and encouraging to my husband who already is a great Dad to stay the course and why it is so vital for especially him to do so with our daughter. I have read other Leman books before and this one doesn't disappoint. No nonsense advise with a sense of humor. I can't wait to see what my hubby thinks. Great read and I highly recommend it!

I certainly want to be the Dad she needs me to be, don’t you? Since three of my six children are girls, I was totally intrigued by Dr. Leman’s subject. Fortunately, the book lived up to its expectations for me. My wife has read several of his books, but this was my first one. He is worth reading! In an engaging, personal style, he gets you thinking on deeply important subject matter. I laid this book down with definate knowledge of where I need to tweak my parenting of my daughters.

He masterfully explained how girls are so different, and so bewildering to we fathers, yet they need us so badly in their lives. The sobering fact that the kind of confidence she will have in life, and the corresponding choices she will make, particularly about relationships, will come from me. He then spends the balance of the book telling me not how to be a perfect Dad, but a good Dad. A Dad who really impacts her life to the good.

He leads past the idea that we can just criticize and command them to be the person we want them to be. We must purposely leave an “indelible imprint” on them. Sadly, we actually will leave one no matter what–that is why we must be purposeful. We must realize that every child we have is different so we have to know her heart. There is no foolproof little 10 Steps To Perfect Parenting. In the case of daughters, ours is the relationship that matters most.

He explained how we Dads are different, but that is good. She needs our approval, not another girlfriend in us. She needs me to live a “disciplined, balanced” life in front of her to give her security. He coached us in how to be involved in “the talk”. That is something we would rather pass off to her mother, but she needs to hear about men from me. If we don’t, some other guy will!

Wow, I have not read a more touching book in years. I bought it for my son in law but read it myself first. It's a very moving and compelling book that really makes you realize the far reaching results of a great daddy-daughter relationship. Great parenting advise coupled with the authors sense of humor makes this book enjoyable in every possible way.

I have a daughter who is five years old, and I love that little girl more than I can quite express through words. I feel an incredible responsibility to be her father and raise her to be the best that she can be. BE THE DAD SHE NEEDS YOU TO BE by Dr. Kevin Leman is a book about being a great dad. He explores the unique reality of raising a daughter and what a daughter needs most from her father.

It's a book about the influence a dad has and how to maximize that influence. There are plenty of challenges in raising a daughter, but even more opportunities for shaping a daughter's life to be a uniquely great one.

As a father of a daughter, I think this is an important book to read and to wrestle through as Leman offers insight on the level of influence a father holds in his little girl's life.

Got daughter? Read it. One of the best books on the subject in a long time, and I've read many on the subject. Your impact on your daughter(s) is lifelong. Now is the time to get with it, even if you're already with it, this book will affirm and refine.

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.

This book is a must read for all Dads with daughters! My husband couldn't put it down and I know our daughters will benefit from Dr. Leman's great insight into this important relationship between Dads and daughters. I also loved Dr. Leman's book "What a Difference a Mom Makes" which focuses on the Mom/Son relationship.
