As the father to two little girls, this book made it on my reading list a few months back. Now that my eldest is moving beyond her toddler years, I thought it was a good time to read it.
The book is a challenging read. Every chapter is full of dozens of pieces of practical advice for the reader. Conversation topics, data, research, parenting ideas, and very specific ways in which to help your daughter grow into a mature, well-adjusted adult.
Repeated throughout is the idea that a daughter’s relationship with her father is the most important that she will have throughout her entire life. She will have many important relationships, but none will have a broader impact or shade her worldview.
This is a book that I will have to re-read several times in the coming years. It’ll be a great resource as my daughters and I navigate our relationship and their coming of age in the world.
Would I recommend: YES
