About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The book is divided into four sections: What Every Girl Needs From her Dad, Tips for Connecting With Your Daughter, Connecting from Far Away, and Praying for Your Daughter. By far the largest section of the book is the one on Tips for Connecting With Your Daughter. Many of the tips are items that the author has done with his daughter and found effective. Others are nothing new in the area of advice for pre-teen parents. Still others are insightful and offer the sharing of new ideas that a caring dad can add to his repertoire of ways to relate to his daughter.
While the author indicates that the book is targeted to the 8 - 12 year old age group many of the ideas can be used on much younger daughters and people with five-year-old daughters and older should consider the book. While this book can provide much needed direction to some dads and at least a few gems for even the most experienced dads, I might also suggest it's companion book for moms: "Mom's Everything Book for Daughters". Together they provide a pretty thorough guidebook to building a strong, personal relationship with your pre-teen daughter.
This book is worth reading if for no other reason than a gentle reminder of what Dad's should be doing if they've been caught up in the fast pace of life.
