    Every day I question how I parent both my children, my daughter particularly since being a typical male, am somewhat confused by females and my daughter. This book really helped me feel better about how I am doing and inspired me to do more for my daughter. It is clear for both my children they need parents not friends and this book reinforced all that I thought to be true. Great book, great read, great tools to work on.
  • Such a great book!!

    Well written and I'm already using what I have learned and applied it towards strengthening my relationships with my daughters. Much of what I felt and believed how things should be early on with my daughters is reinforced in this book, but somehow along the way, uncertainty and doubt can set in and outside influences work against you. Unfortunately society has been attacking the family and relationships fathers ought to have with their daughters. Don't let them slip away. Be strong.

    Every father should read this. Over and over. There is so much information presented, that you have to read it again from time to time to be reminded of everything out there that poses a threat to your daughter. This book is one of my all time favorites!

    Fabulous book - great advice. It made me see what I missed growing up and why my ex husband needs to be a big part of our daughters life! I think this book should be required high school (maybe junior high) reading!!
