I wanted to like this book. The title drew me in, and the basic premise that daughters need dads to stand up for them in a world that tends to consume young women and to provide them a role model of how a decent male behaves was something I could get behind.
However as I started reading I was increasingly disappointed. Several things put me off or marred the book for me: The condescending attitude towards both men and young women. Dads are stereotyped to be basically a witless bunch of hyper I wanted to like this book. For instance, Meeker makes the outlandish and ridiculous claim that girls experience PMS long before they have the hormones of puberty, and this causes them to be overemotional and fickle creatures.
She then goes so far as to put her credentials as an MD behind that assertion. The author frequently makes uncharitable assumptions about mothers, too, a few times going so far as to characterize them as a potential threat to a dad's relationship with his daughter. At other times she says things like, in giving an example of sacrifices you might have to make for your daughter, that you might have to "stay married to her crazy mother" to give her an intact household.
This suggests a rather unhealthy and bizarre dynamic, which leads me to the final and weirdest objection I had to the book There seems to be an odd kind of Electra complex at work in some of the suggestions and attitudes in the book.
At one point a widower is said to have remarried too soon after his wife's death because his 9 year old daughter wouldn't talk with him and he got lonely. My jaw about hit the floor. That doesn't seem right at all. Another "touching" anecdote is shared in which a father tucks his daughter into bed each night whispering "your wedding night: What an odd thing for a father to say to a young girl, let alone as a daily ritual.
There are all kinds of moments like that in the book which just don't sit right with me, to the point that when I got to the chapter called "Be the Man You Want Her to Marry" I had to give a little disgusted snicker.
My quest to find a truly inspiring and helpful book for my husband to read in order to learn more about father-daughter dynamics continues, as this book definitely does not fit the bill. View all 12 comments.

Jul 16, Eric rated it did not like it. As the father of a young daugher, I was hooked by the title, but extremely disappointed. The book offered very little practical information for me.
I found it extremely preachy and too religous to be useful I know this is not a popular opinion these days, so please save the hate mail. I was extremely put off by the author making large leaps in converting isolated anecdotal evidence into broad sweeping generalizations dsguised as research although there are some actual statistics in the book, As the father of a young daugher, I was hooked by the title, but extremely disappointed. I was extremely put off by the author making large leaps in converting isolated anecdotal evidence into broad sweeping generalizations dsguised as research although there are some actual statistics in the book, don't get me wrong.
I don't remember the exact phrase, but terns like "predetermined for a life of prostitution or pornography" just really got under my skin.
I was not scared by the book the author's obvious intent , but rather annoyed by it. Fathers, my advice? Take a pass on this book.
Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: The 30-Day Challenge
Take the time you would have spent reading it and spend some quality time with your daughter. View 1 comment. Oct 06, Mikal rated it liked it. I was looking for a good book that I vehemently disagree with. This is such a book.
This book was written by an intelligent person that I have a philosophical disagreement with. I came to find this book through colleagues. It was highly recommended. I do recommend this book but for different reasons. It was recommended to me as a guidebook for fathers for understanding, relating to and knowing the role they play in their daughters lives.
I recommend it as a critical study to identify what your per I was looking for a good book that I vehemently disagree with. I recommend it as a critical study to identify what your personal values are and what role you want to play in your daughters life-- knowing that this book is equal part good advice and equal part a compendium of societal stereotypes.
It's up to you the reader to decide what is what.
Two components: Intelligent author: However her research is incomplete, and woefully biased. She aggregates statistics to paint a black and white portrait that supports her views. Reality it seems is not the case. Particularly her facts on faith leap out as just false. That said while she is admittedly not an expert in child psychology she is informed and has stories littered throughout. Philosophical differences: Very early on its also clear I do not share her religious views. For example, she makes it clear that she felt discussing how homosexual men contract HIV is permanently damaging to her young son, but discussing how heterosexual men get HIV was completely fine.
In addition she refers to Billy Graham as a spiritual giant. She also views teenage sex as some odd act reserved for the deepest circles of hell. I personally don't think that raising a "strong daughter" begins and ends with preventing early sex. When it comes down to it-- this book forced me to explore my own views of parenting. It has some great advice and does a good job in communicating the differences between a child and an adult outlook on the world.
Children need rules that have backbone-- these are their guard rails until they are able to mold them and redefine them on their own. Ultimately I have a definition of "strong daughter" that has a higher expectation than this book covers. This book has helped me explore this in a way that I can one day communicate it.

Others will have different ratings in accordance with their own. In the course of my fathering a freshman adolescent, I have found myself subject to objections, criticisms, and detachment quite unfamiliar to me a couple of years ago.
Children grow up and seek independence. This is to be expected, even desired. And to her credit, she has helped rekindle my own sense of paternal mission. But not all of her rationale and methodology is admirable or advisable.
She holds to a conservative, old-school, religious doctrine of surveillance and enforcement, as opposed to my inclinations of protection and guidance. Nonetheless, I am persuaded to adjust my style toward a more stalwart leadership role, to be more definitive in my pedagogy, and to more boldly advocate my moral compass.
Where I draw the line is between advocacy and indoctrination. Meeker proposes that a father indoctrinate a daughter with his own religious bias, and justifies it on the basis of better outcomes, e. Giving your daughter the best chance of success and the lowest risk is the objective of every good parent, but administering a spiritual placebo to achieve that end is of questionable merit.
Risk can be lowered and outcomes improved in other ways, in my opinion. However, the author does tacitly recognize that there is a point beyond which parental belligerence may become counterproductive and drive a child away. There is much more in this book to defend and attack.
But in the final analysis, I can only recommend it, not as an instruction manual for fathers, but to draw them into the circle of deliberation and, where appropriate, adjust or refine their approach to fathering.
Sep 12, Alicia Mitsch rated it did not like it Shelves: After slogging through two chapters, I have learned that my daughter will become a cracked-out junkie who will sell her body for drugs and a sense of self-worth, all because she lacks a father in her life. While I did agree with a few of the author's points, overall, I felt she was making a point that was somewhat close-minded and offensive.
Yes, our media and culture have oversexualized our children; everything from clothing to television portrays the idea that every girl aged seven to fif Wow. Yes, our media and culture have oversexualized our children; everything from clothing to television portrays the idea that every girl aged seven to fifteen should look like they are aged sixteen to twenty-one. That is a major problem that I face as a parent.
Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know
However, I do not think that my daughter lacks for positive role models in her life, both male and female. She has many loving grandfathers, uncles, and cousins who all get a hand in helping my daughter have a good sense of self-worth from a male prospective. Nor do I think I should remarry solely to provide my daughter with a father figure, as though any "dad" is better than none at all. To be married for such a reason would not give my daughter a very good role model for choosing a good marital partner, nor would it provide her with a happy home if I or the intended father figure were unhappy with the situation.
Also, I find it a bit repulsive that Dr. Meeker suggests that parents should stay married for the children. Divorce may hurt kids, but so do homes with poor role models for healthy intimacy and adult relationships. All of my friends who are children of divorced parents say that divorce was much better than the alternative of their parents staying married. All in all, I have to say that this book comes at fathers with a very sex negative approach, and an extremely conservative view of what would be in the best interests of the daughter.
I am saddened that since the 60's, as far as we've come as a culture in redefining family, this book proposes to throw it all out, and revert back to "Father Knows Best". I do not recommend this book, and I hope that it disappears to the annals of history.
Dec 07, Natalie Snapp rated it it was amazing. If you are the father of a little girl, run, don't walk to the bookstore. If you are a mother, don't let the title deceive you - you will want to read it as well. We recommended this to a friend and he just told us it completely changed his views on raising his new baby girl.
If this book were issued to all new parents of little gals, our girls would not face the challenges they face today. I am a staunch believer in preserving the innocence of our little girls who grow up far too fast in a culture that promotes it.
This book made me feel like I was on the right track and it made my husband a loving, tender, daddy to our sweet girl. Meghan Meeker was first published in Technology since the time of this books publication has advanced so exponentially I could only imagine some of the advice Dr. Meeker would give in would be much more extreme than it was in I am the father of two young girls and this book is incredibly powerful, a lot of tremendous advice is given thru out this entire book, at times its a bit out of my arena in dealing with things like teens, death of a Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters By Dr.
I am the father of two young girls and this book is incredibly powerful, a lot of tremendous advice is given thru out this entire book, at times its a bit out of my arena in dealing with things like teens, death of a mother, divorce, step moms and things as such.
When it deals with dedication to family, time spent with full attention to the young ones as they grow and current things I am dealing with in regards to young daughters I can definitely relate, however this book is broad and covers all situations a father may deal with pertaining to his daughter from her birth to your death, she covers all bases and uses a lot of very heart wrenching and touching stories to convey her points. The one thing I like most about this book is her ferocious assault on modern pop culture and its toxic effect on young girls and how we must protect them from the poison that is modern pop culture, media, internet there was no social media at the time of this books publication in wide use like FB and Twitter , so it wasn't mentioned although I would like to hunt down some modern articles of hers on this subject young girls and social media if she has any written.
She touches on really important things to me personally such as, incredible authors like Dostovyevksy, C. Overall this was a great book that I've had sitting on my book shelf taunting me for about a year now and I'm elated that I finally read it, there was a multitude of great lessons that will stay with me and become a part of me.
She quoted the end part of this Poem Ulysses by Alfred Lord Tennyson and I thought it was beyond worthy to share the poem in its entirety here. Ulysses By Alfred, Lord Tennyson It little profits that an idle king, By this still hearth, among these barren crags, Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole Unequal laws unto a savage race, That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me. I cannot rest from travel: I will drink Life to the lees: All times I have enjoy'd Greatly, have suffer'd greatly, both with those That loved me, and alone, on shore, and when Thro' scudding drifts the rainy Hyades Vext the dim sea: I am become a name; For always roaming with a hungry heart Much have I seen and known; cities of men And manners, climates, councils, governments, Myself not least, but honour'd of them all; And drunk delight of battle with my peers, Far on the ringing plains of windy Troy.
I am a part of all that I have met; Yet all experience is an arch wherethro' Gleams that untravell'd world whose margin fades For ever and forever when I move.
How dull it is to pause, to make an end, To rust unburnish'd, not to shine in use!
As tho' to breathe were life! Life piled on life Were all too little, and of one to me Little remains: This is my son, mine own Telemachus, To whom I leave the sceptre and the isle,— Well-loved of me, discerning to fulfil This labour, by slow prudence to make mild A rugged people, and thro' soft degrees Subdue them to the useful and the good. Most blameless is he, centred in the sphere Of common duties, decent not to fail In offices of tenderness, and pay Meet adoration to my household gods, When I am gone.
He works his work, I mine. There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail: There gloom the dark, broad seas.
My mariners, Souls that have toil'd, and wrought, and thought with me— That ever with a frolic welcome took The thunder and the sunshine, and opposed Free hearts, free foreheads—you and I are old; Old age hath yet his honour and his toil; Death closes all: The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks: The long day wanes: Come, my friends, 'T is not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Jul 26, Angie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book has become one of THE most important, life-changing, books that I've ever read, and it's not even written for me as a mother Lane is already an amazing dad, and I couldn't imagine anything that could make him a better father, but just from reading the first few chapters we've learned some important new parenting stratagies.
We've been reminded of some that we'd forgotten about and we've recommitted to some that we already had in place and have also spent This book has become one of THE most important, life-changing, books that I've ever read, and it's not even written for me as a mother We've been reminded of some that we'd forgotten about and we've recommitted to some that we already had in place and have also spent some time re-evaluating our priorities.
It's so nice to recieve confirmation that at least some of what we've already been doing is correct. Here is a run down of the chapter headings Some of the statistics are shocking and I'd like to think that they don't apply to my daughters, but rather than living in a make believe world where my children are perfect I want to be able to use every tool and resource out there to protect them and help them beat the odds. I really hope you pick this one up and leave it laying around in the bathroom for your husband to read.
Aug 24, Melissa rated it it was amazing. My husband read this book over the summer and it transformed his parenting! He has always been a wonderful father, but this has really helped open his eyes to how vital he is to our daughter's emotional - and physical - well-being and health. He has applied what he's learned with our preteen daughter and all I can think is that I wish my father was able to parent me like this, it would have prevented a lot of pain, heartbreak and tangles of sin.
I would have felt treasured and loved. My father d My husband read this book over the summer and it transformed his parenting! My father does love me, but he loves me the best he knows how - and this book spells it out for fathers and is specific in what they need to do.
I think that part of what makes this book so great for fathers is that it isn't full of fluff and emotion, it is full of facts and statistics appealing to man's logic and practical nature, speaking their language.
This is the best parenting book that either of us have read so far and we will be reading her Boys Should be Boys book as well. Dec 26, Parcoast rated it liked it. On some levels this book was disturbing, not because the content was incorrect, but because the facts presented are themselves disturbing. In one section it gives a sample dialogue of what a teenage girl might be thinking as she becomes a victim of anorexia.
In another she talks about the statistics and consequences of teenage sexual activity, focusing on STDs for a large part of it. It seems that each new chapter presents another disturbing issue that I don't really want to deal with, yet is a On some levels this book was disturbing, not because the content was incorrect, but because the facts presented are themselves disturbing.
It seems that each new chapter presents another disturbing issue that I don't really want to deal with, yet is a real issue. It was a hard read. In another sense, I feel that this is the first true self-help book I have ever read.
I love self-help books in general, but they are more about empowering yourself to make changes that you want to make to lead you to a happier, more successful life. This is different. I'll need to read a bunch of normal self help books just to make sure I apply all of the instructions in this one Finally, while this review may seem to be a jumbled mess, I have to say that I agree with Meeker's viewpoints and moral stance in general.
Many problems would be avoided if fathers would teach abstinence, humility, confidence, and faith, and avoid divorce, engage fully at home, shun pornography, and look towards God. The serious issues that are brought about this book are largely the result of negative behaviors by fathers, and if men would stop the excuses, society as a whole would improve.
Jun 30, Michael rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Anyone with Daughters, Especially Fathers. Without a doubt, one of the best books I have read that has already begun to help me as a father of daughters. Meeker did a fantastic job of clarifying the differences of mothers vs. Obviously while our daughters are young, they are impressionable, but it is at all years of their lives that we as fathers can and will have an affect on them. I thoroughly enjoyed the statistics that were included, even if they were beyond sca Without a doubt, one of the best books I have read that has already begun to help me as a father of daughters.
I thoroughly enjoyed the statistics that were included, even if they were beyond scary. I want to hope that these numbers are a little off due to the location in which I live and the predominant religion that we are surrounded with, but I know that is when one truly gets duped.
No matter where we are, young ladies are affected by their surroundings and a father can have a great influence in making sure their daughter is safe!
I checked this book out at the library, but have realized I need to purchase it. There are many parts of this book in which I would like to write things down in the margin so that I can remind myself of things I need to do. This book's title may speak directly to fathers, but I think that a mother might find this informative as well, especially to help out fathers in their quest to succeed as fathers.
Feb 26, J rated it it was ok. This book provided very few real insights, and those were backed up with mostly anecdotal evidence. There were some hard facts study results, etc. I felt like some of the material was presented in a disingenuous way. For example, the information regarding sex education standards seemed like it was cherry-picked in an attempt to shock the reader's sense of decency.
Furthermore, studies about STDs and depression seemed to be used to This book provided very few real insights, and those were backed up with mostly anecdotal evidence. Furthermore, studies about STDs and depression seemed to be used to draw non-causative conclusions. Finally, there was a lot of criticism toward modern society versus the "good ol' days", without really discussing the benefits of raising a daughter today.
I will say that there were parts of the book that I really liked, and there was some real food for thought. One thing that really sticks out for me is the suggestion to write down your rules, expectations and limits for your daughter when she's young. Then, you'll have something concrete to draw upon when she's a teenager. It's just that I had to wade through so much repetition, so many generalizations, and so many feel-good or feel-bad anecdotes to get to those kinds of suggestions, that I really can't recommend this book to anyone.
Every father with a daughter needs to read this book. Every man who's thinking about having children, needs to read this book. Every wife who has a daughter, needs to tell their husband to read this book.
And every married man should read this book. This book brings up topics, you may think are common sense, but they are severely underserved. It brings the stats and personal stories to justify the argument the author is making. It made a believer out of me, and I definitely will read this over a Every father with a daughter needs to read this book. It made a believer out of me, and I definitely will read this over and over again as my daughters grow older. God willing. I also will pick up her other title "Boys will be boys", and any other book she has written.
Meg Meeker is a fantastic author, who should be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her latest work. Jan 14, Joseph R. A lot of ink digital and actual has been put down about the relationships between fathers and sons. But what about fathers' relationships to their daughters? The literature is rather slim. This book provides some practical advice and motivation to fathers so that they will be more involved in their daughters' lives, even from an early age.
The book emphasizes a point that is generally neglected: Fathers are a role model to their daughters of what men should be like. Daughters will measure guys A lot of ink digital and actual has been put down about the relationships between fathers and sons.
