Format: Hardcover

Availability: In stock

Quick Overview:

A call to dads to step up to the plate to become the loving, actively engaged father that a daughter needs for life and relational success.

From the New York Times best-selling author of Have a New Kid by Friday comes a call to dads to step up to the plate to become the loving, actively engaged father that a daughter needs for life and relational success.

The relationship that matters most to your daughter isn't the one with her mother—it's the one with you, Dad. Her self-esteem, choices, behavior, character, and even her ideas about or choice of a marriage partner are all directly tied to you, as the most important representative to her of the male species.

In Be the Dad She Needs You to Be Dr. Kevin Leman, internationally-known psychologist, New York Times best-selling author, and father of four daughters, will show you not only how to get the fathering job done and done well, but also how to:

  • Make each daughter feel unique, special, and valued
  • Discipline the right way . . . when it's needed
  • Talk turkey about what guys are really thinking
  • Keep the critical eye at bay
  • Wave the truce flag when females turn your family room into a battleground
  • Set your daughter up for life and relational success

With some effort on your part (and very few dollars), you can gain the kind of relationship you dream of with your daughter—one based on mutual love and respect. The simple yet profound suggestions will transform you into the kind of man your daughter needs . . . for a lifetime.

Review by Tomi @ Three Boys and an Old Lady blog
Overall Rating
The relationship between a father and a daughter is an important one and really helps shape the type of woman the daughter will become. He presents some insightful statistical data in the first chapter which sets the framework for the importance of the father / daughter relationship.

Dr. Leman writes of some of the benefits of having an engaged dad:

The daughters have higher self worth
The daughters rebel less, especially in critical years
Their adult relationships are healthier
Their life trajectories are more successful

Review by Dad of Divas
Overall Rating
As a father of two girls I am always concerned to how I am parenting my girls. As someone who was an only child growing up my children really did not come with any instruction manuals per se, so it has been a lot of trial and error that I have followed to try and be the best dad that I can be. This book is a great resource for any father of girls and gives you some amazing ideas and opens your mind to new ways to develop and cultivate a relationship with your girls that I know that I want to have with my girls. This was a great book that is down-to-earth and easy to read and is a book that I wish that I had about nine years ago when my first daughter was born as it really is a great road map for any new dad. That being said it is never too late to start on a new path!
