Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician and leading expert on parenting, teens, and children’s health, published the book “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters” to show fathers how to strengthen and re-build their bond with their daughters. Dr. Meeker ascertains that fathers are the most important people in the lives of young girls after her 20 years of counseling experience. She feels that the key to raising confident, well-adjusted girls is to have a strong father figure in their lives with conservative values. A great relationship with a daughter can help fathers protect them from eating disorders, failure in school, and drug or alcohol abuse.
The National Review says the book is “a helpful roadmap for concerned fathers that tackles difficult issues.” Dr. Armand Nicholi Jr., a professor of psychiatry at Harvard, agrees that the book is an excellent read: “No one interested in what girls experience growing up in our culture today – and the impact that parents, especially fathers, have on the experience – can afford to miss reading this book.”
