PRAISE FOR STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS: THE 30-DAY CHALLENGE
"Both my girls were practically grown and gone the first time I discovered Meg Meeker's STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS, but it still had a huge impact on how I talk to and relate with them. STRONG FATHERS, STRONG DAUGHTERS: THE 30-DAY CHALLENGE is the book I wish someone had given me the day my first daughter was born! "

This book provides important reminders of the overall principles and enhances your understanding of them at the same time. Through her practical suggestions, Dr. Meeker gives fathers countless ideas of things to do to build their relationships with their daughters. Whether it is suggesting you make time for a date, or explaining how your daughter understands your comments about her appearance or intellect. Each of Dr. Meeker's suggestions give you practical food for thought in building your relationship with your daughter.
Dr. Meeker's consistent suggestion is to "Put it on your calendar." So often our best plans get lost in the shuffle of daily life. Daughters do not need "quality time," they simply need time with their fathers. And whether you are cooking together (Day 14) or praying with your daughter (Day 24), you need to make space in your life and your mind to devote to your daughter. So put it on your calendar.
This book makes the perfect Father's Day present, along with Dr. Meeker's first volume. Combining the theoretical with the practical is essential to understanding your daughter and improving your relationship with her. Even if you have a wonderful relationship, Dr. Meeker's practical tips will give you ways to keep your relationship strong. Whatever your relationship, and whatever your daughter's age, this book is a treasury of good tips and timeless wisdom.
In Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: The 30-Day Challenge, author Meg Meeker helps men see the God given abilities that can help them be an extremely important part of their daughters' lives. Dads show their daughters what men are, who God is, and how the world doesn't wants what's best for them; only dad and mom do.
The book covers the same topics as her original work, Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know. 1) You are the most important man in her life. 2) She needs a hero. 3) You are her first love. 4) Teach her humility. 5) Protect and Defend her. 6) Pragmatism and Grit, Two of Your Greatest Assets 7) Be the man you want her to marry. 8) Teach her who God is. 9) Teach her to fight. 10) Keep her connected. She recommends reading certain chapters in this book. However, even if you don't buy the 10 Secrets book, you get a lot of information from the Challenge book. This latter edition is particularly good for men who don't have a habit of reading. Any man, if he cares to know more about his daughter, will read the thirty chapters, each of which are no more than four pages long.
Each chapter will help you grow as a man, and you will see that this is important because your daughter will someday marry someone like you. As Meeker says, "Women gravitate towards the familiar.Read more ›
I consider myself a liberal person, I want to be open with my daughter and let her live her life. This book opened my eyes to some of the challenges a dad will face with his daughter. At first I was a little skeptical but this is a book written by a renowned MD whose quoted data are easily fact checked (and I have) which gives much credance to the themes the author puts forth.
I strongly recommend this book to dads of any age, first time or not, with babies or grown children. It will, I hope, help you be a better man, husband and father to your daughter. It's already helping me.
