    "Good practical advice"

    I tried reading this book and although it was very good, found it to long to get through.
    I listened to it on audible and found it easy listening and full of good advice.
    Definitely recommend listening.

    "Good book for multiple sessions"

    I believe this will be a book I will listen to every year right before my daughter's birthday. I know young ones like to see the rules updated as they get older, this will quickly remind me to watch those fences and likely pull them in just a bit. Thank you!

    "Every dad should read"

    Absolutely loved this book. I sincerely believe the content will help me be a better father to my precious 9 year old daughter.

    Dr Meeker has the ability to present this information in a well-researched, scientific manner, while also clearly expressing the love of a parent and pediatrician.

    If you are a Dad, please please read this book. I sincerely believe your daughter will thank you for it.

    "Listen to this, if not for you then do it for your Daughter!"

    This is an excellent Audio Book, that covers a wide range of topics that will help you be the best dad you can be, but more importantly give your Daughter the best she can be, giving her the tools to create the life all our children deserve.

    I would recommend this to any Father with children of any age, whether they be a baby, toddler or adult woman. The teachings in this book will be of great benefit & add to your skills as a parent.

    I would also recommend this to any mothers who do not appreciate the importance of a father in their child's life. This follows my experience of being separated from my little 3 year old Angel for 9 months after her mother TRIED to stop me from ever seeing my daughter again. Fortunately my Daughter & I won the battle.

    Fantastic Read - Thankyou for sharing

    "Incredible"

    This is a great book for every father. I have learned so much that I will be putting into practice right away. It's also a book that I will read every year so I can continue to put different things in practice with my daughters as they continue to age. Dr. Meg thank you for this gift.

    Story
    "Kind of sweet, kind of preachy"

    I like the idea of this book, as a source if inspiration and guidance for fathers of girls. It is nice to hear how much influence we have in our girls' lives, and in ways we don't always realize.

    That said, this book is high opinionated and voices its opinions in a way that makes them sound like facts. It uses a lot of "shocking" statistics to prove how scary the world is and how bad things are getting for girls. These facts are rarely put in a larger, more optimistic context that includes the amazing progress that the world is making for our girls. I found its "the sky is falling" attitude uninspiring and got tired of being lectured and moralized at.

    In many ways, this book is the opposite of the much more effective "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk", my personal favorite parenting book of all time. If you read this book, then read "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk" as a counterweight!

    Story
    "Unorganized and slightly creepy..."

    My husband and I were so excited to read this book. As we have two daughters, we knew that it was important for him to start developing and nurturing the relationship. We thought this book would provide helpful tips on how to do that. What we found was a cluster of paranoid ramblings about STD, stories that were unusual, and a lot of scare tactic instead of helpful tips. Most of the book is studies about sex, drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, etc. there isn't a whole lot of 'meat' to it. Also, it suggests that fathers talk to their daughters about 'their beautiful bodies' when asking them to cover up. We finally had to turn it off because we were so creeped out. I am unsure if it is the way to narrator reads the books or the way it was written but it was super condescending! At one point early on, she LITERALLY says that you should never get divorced under any circumstances until your kids are 21 even if your spouse is mentally unstable. It talks about how selfish you are and that you need to stay in an unhappy marriage because it is better for kids. Seriously...it says that! I am not divorced, I don't ever plan to be but I have never heard of kids growing up with unhappy parents being well adjusted in marriages.

    Story
    "A lot of useful things to know"

    A lot of the content of this book is good common sense. The author emphasises how important a father's role is to his daughter's life, which I think is true but I often forget. This book has been a good reminder. As other reviewers have commented the author writes from a Christian perspective. Whatever your view on this, Christianity offers a view of what's good for human flourishing, which is interesting to hear. Sometimes I think the author is a little too fearful. She works as a doctor and sees lots of problems, which perhaps colours her perspective. Nevertheless it is good to know some of the things that can go wrong (EG anorexia) and how to recognise some of the symptoms.
