In an age and society that places such little emphasis on the role of the father in the home, it was tremendously refreshing and enlightening to read this book.

Meg Meeker did a wonderful job of proving by statistical data, scientific study, and clinical experience, just how important and influential a father is to his daughter. She states that he is the most important man in her life and systematically proves it throughout the book.
In a touching way, she brings out the fact that a daughter yearns to secure her father's love, and that he is in fact her first love. She states, "You are her first love, so the early years of your relationship with her are crucial. The love you give her is her starting point. You have other loves in your life, but she doesn't. Every man who enters her life will be compared to you; every relationship she has with a man will be filtered through her relationship with you. If you have a good relationship, she will choose boyfriends who will treat her well. If she sees you as open and warm, she'll be confident with other men. If you are cold and unaffectionate, she'll find it hard to express love in a healthy way."
This is a must read for fathers who want to learn about how their involvement or lack thereof affects their daughters, and how they can help them grow to be balanced, confident, secure women. It will also help fathers learn how to guide their teenage daughters through the difficult teen years, and how their love and moral guidance in their lives can help prevent teenage pregnancies, eating disorders, emotional disabilities, and behavioral problems.
If you want to give your daughter the best possible edge in life, this book will help you learn how to do that!
