Show 1509 Book- Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know
From the Eric Metaxas Show.
Dr. Meg Meeker shares her latest book Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know
Overview of the book-
In today's increasingly complicated world, it's often difficult for parents to connect with their daughters-and especially so for fathers. In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than twenty years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the ten secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life-and his own-for the better. Inside you'll discover: the essential virtues of strong fathers-and how to develop them, the cues daughters take from their dads on everything from self-respect to drugs, alcohol, and sex, the truth about ground rules (girls do want them, despite their protests), the importance of becoming a hero to your daughter, the biggest mistake a dad can make-and the ramifications, the fact that girls actually depend on their dads' guidance into adulthood, steps fathers can follow to help daughters avoid disastrous decisions and mistakes, ways in which a father's faith-or lack thereof-will influence his daughter, essential communication strategies for different stages of a girl's life, true stories of "prodigal daughters"-and how their fathers helped to bring them back. Dads, you are far more powerful than you think-and if you follow Dr. Meeker's advice, the rewards will be unmatched.
In the 20 years she spent practicing adolescent medicine and counseling teens and parents, Dr. Meg Meeker has learned many things, but perhaps none is more central than this: The most important person in a young girl's life is her father. In this book, a surprise hit in hardcover, she explains the essential connection between strong paternal messages and healthy, well-adjusted daughters. Citing recent research, Meeker describes how the support of fathers is the most reliable predictor of academic achievement, resilient marriage, and a stable emotional life. Sound pointers for pops.
