Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is not only practical and incredibly insightful, but this is stuff I can immediately incorporate in relating to my three daughters. Jay Payleitner has done a wonderful job making this a go-to book for dads of daughters. Hint: Moms, buy this book for your husband!"
Jim Burns, president of HomeWord and author of Teenology and Confident Parenting


"In easy-to-swallow and to-the-point snippets, Jay gives dads fantastic advice. This is a great tool for any father who wants to be intentional about raising whole and healthy children in a culture that makes that task difficult. I love his approachable writing voice and the alarming but truthful cultural research you'll find in this book."
Dannah Gresh, author of Six Ways to Keep the "Little" in Your Girl and Six Ways to Keep the "Good" in Your Boy


"Every dad wants his daughter to grow up with dignity, self-respect, grace, humility, virtue and significance. These attributes do not come overnight. Jay's approach helps dads with the development of these desirable character traits from early childhood through walking them down the aisle. This man-of-God approach will play a major role in our daughters selecting a man of God for a husband."
Darrel Billups, executive director of the National Coalition of Ministries to Men


"Although raising a daughter seems foreign and frightening to many men, we play a huge role in our little girls' lives. In this book, my friend Jay provides dads with a wealth of insights and practical ideas that will help them invest wisely in their daughters' lives. Maybe best of all, he does it in a way that allows dads to smile and get rid of the fright. He instills confidence that you can have a close and difference-making relationship with your daughter."
Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering, radio host of Today's Father, and author of Championship Fathering


"What a wise and wonderful book! Jay Payleitner has given us not only 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads...he has given us 52 practical, funny, doable, and amazingly powerful things daughters need from their dads. Read this book and be sure that you give copies to every father of a daughter. He will rise up and call you blessed. His daughters will too!"
Steve Brown, popular author, seminary professor, and radio teacher on Key Life


"Dads have the unique opportunity to influence, guide, and encourage their daughters to grow into godly and gracious young ladies. Jay Payleitner mixes humor with wisdom and biblical insights to help strengthen the bonds between family members. 52 Things Daughters Need from their Dads is a playbook that gives a father the tools he can use for building a lasting and loving relationship."
Karol Ladd, bestselling author of The Power of a Positive Mom


"Payleitner has done it again! Each section of this treasure chest of wisdom contains insights on what every daughter needs from her daddy, and tips every man needs to think about—all in an easy-to-read format. Well done, my friend!"
Rick Johnson, bestselling author of Better Dads, Stronger Sons and That's My Girl


"Just about all the dads I know want their relationship with their daughters to be the best it can possibly be. But then life interrupts. We get distracted with other things and before we know it, she's out the door pursuing life on her own. 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads is so helpful not only because it reminds us of the priority our daughters should have in our lives, it also gives us creative, useful ideas for how to create an unbreakable bond with them. Thanks, Jay, for your heart to help all of us dads!"
Wayne Shepherd, national Christian radio host of First Person with Wayne Shepherd

I enjoyed many of the tips from this book and if I could recommend this book to anyone, it looks like it was written for more of the teen age years. I have some very young daughters and I'm looking forward to building a great foundation with many of the tips. I wish there were more tips for when his daughter was young but at least this book will be great down the road. I don't see how you couldn't become a better dad after reading this great book.

This was a great book! I really enjoyed it as I am trying to be a great father to my two precious girls. This book has been a blessing to me while I'm in the middle of a custody battle. This book showed me no matter if two parents can't agree I still have to show my daughter love and affection. Thanks Jay!

Format: Paperback
52 Things Daughters Need From Their Dads by Jay Payleitner is an interesting resource for fathers wanting to better understand, relate to and spend time with their daughters. A lot of the information and suggestions are based on common sense or past experiences but they are often overlooked by fathers struggling to relate to their teenage daughter.

As I currently don't have any daughters reading this book was more for preparation purposes but I think most of the 52 things would be very helpful if I do have a daughter. Some of the insights were also helpful in relating to younger cousins and other females who at times, like most guys, I have struggled to understand.

The narration was quite good as the author of the book narrated it, so he could add the added emphasis that is sometimes lacking in other audio books.

This book would be a useful resource for any father who has daughters and really wants to spend quality time with them and develop solid life-long relationships.

This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. More information can be found about this and other Christian audio books at christianaudio.com.

Great bathroom reader! Hope I can remember, or save this for the teenage years. My only qualm is he address us guys (fathers) sometimes too much as the stereo typical older, office, salesmen type like we're back in the early 80's or something. I say, "Not all of us come home at 7pm with a sport coat flung over our shoulders, pally."

My daughters are adults now, but fortunately, there are some words of wisdom here for dads of adult daughters. I hope to be close enough to my granddaughters to apply these principles. I will re-read this book occasionally.
