That’s right – and teen health expert Dr. Meg Meeker has the data and clinical experience to prove it. After more than twenty years of counseling girls, she knows that fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for their daughters’ lives. Now, she shows you how to strengthen — or rebuild – your bond with your daughter, and use it to shape her life, and yours, for the better. Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STD’s, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse — and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.

This book is incredible. I wish every dad in the world would read it. It is all about the influence a father has on his daughter’s life—her choices, her morals, her future happiness, everything. The book is the fruit of the work of its author, Dr. Meg Meeker, who has spent over 20 years studying how daughters either thrive or suffer as a result of their relationship with their fathers. Full of chapters such as “She Needs a Hero” and “Teach Her to Fight,” this book both urges and encourages fathers to love their daughters extraordinarily and gives them the practical tools to do so. I shared my zeal about this book with my own dad one day on a long car trip. My dad is so, so great, and I can look back and see how he has influenced my life in so very many positive ways. He and my mom are definitely the reasons that I have avoided so many pitfalls and made good choices. So, my dad is already awesome, but I thought it couldn’t hurt to encourage him a little bit as he continues to raise my two younger sisters, right? My dad’s influence, as powerful as it is, is usually pretty inconspicuous and unassuming, I guess you could say. My mom is the one who gave us most of our “It’s important to save sex for marriage” spiels, as my dad looked on and nodded his head. Later he would say things like, “You’re mom’s really smart, you know. She knows a lot.” So, at one point during our drive to my sister Jessie’s crosscountry meet, I was encouraging my dad to be a little more vocal and take advantage of the time he still has left with my two sisters still at home. So…I suggested that he take my sister Katie out for her upcoming 18th birthday for dinner and an “I love you, I believe in you, Your purity is precious” talk. I began to say, “Dad, I can’t imagine you doing this with Katie, and her not honoring that trust and love and waiting for her future husband. But, after the “Dad, I can’t imagine you doing this with Katie” part, I paused for a breath, and Dad muttered, “Neither can I.” Ugh. My mom knew what I had meant. Katie’s 18th birthday has come and gone, but my dad is bringing my two sisters to the upcoming Father & Daughter Purity Ball that One More Soul is sponsoring. And, believe me, he is only doing it because he loves them—and me—a whole lot. So, if you are a dad, have a dad, or know a dad who might read this book, PLEASE READ/SHARE IT! I believe it can change the lives of many families and bring a lot of happiness to a lot of young girls. But, for all of those men out there who won’t pick up this book, or, maybe like my dad, express their love in powerful but less verbal and explicit ways, please just know that what you do matters. It matters more than you could even dream, and someday in Heaven you’ll get to see how important you were in the lives of your children. Hopefully they’ll tell you and thank you before then, but everyone is not so fortunate. Finally, I’ll leave you with just one of many great quotes from Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters. My sisters may refuse to speak to me for this, but here it is anyway—and trust me, it’s true: “Let me tell you a secret: many daughters challenge their fathers too. They’ll dive into a power struggle with you, not to see how tough you are, but to see how much you really care about them. So remember that when she pushes hard against your rules, flailing, crying that you are mean or unfair, she is really asking you a question: Am I worth the fight, Dad? Are you strong enough to handle me? Make sure she knows the answer is yes.”
