Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

June 4, 2015


Whether you are a new father to a daughter or have years of experience in that role, Strong Father’s, Strong Daughters by Meg Meeker is a valuable read that I cannot recommend highly enough. Drawing together the experience she gained in twenty years as a pediatric and adolescent doctor, thorough research, and a foundationally biblical perspective, Dr. Meeker provides comprehensive and straightforward insights regarding the relationship between a father and daughter as she expounds upon “The Ten Secrets That Every Father Should Know.” I read Strong Fathers last year, and immediately began to interact with and view my daughter in a more understanding way, and am planning to read it again this summer for a “refresher course.” In a day and age when so many different influences compete for a daughter’s attention, the most important is her father’s, and it is time well spent to learn how to more effectively become that primary influence in her life.
