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 valuedDiscipline the right way . . . when it's neededTalk turkey about what guys are really thinkingKeep the critical eye at bayWave the truce flag when females turn your family room into a battlegroundSet 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.

Just what we needed
My daughter just turned 12 and this book gave me a lot of onsite into how I could deal with the way her mind is working. The writer uses personal and patient stories and anecdotes to make his points. I listened to his Have a New Kid by Friday book and it is a gold mine of useful insight and techniques. I am not religious and while the author is a Christian author he does beat you over the head with it. A great read.
I started seeing a difference with me and my daughter after just a few chapters.
