Something went wrong between me and my dad when I hit adolescence. We couldn't talk anymore -- about anything.
Psychologists would say that we lost our attachment. They'd warn that girls who don't connect with their dads are more likely to suffer from eating disorders, be sexually promiscuous, and have poorer parenting skills than daughters who have healthy relationships with their fathers.
All I know is that when it came time to walk down the aisle, I wanted to go alone.
Dads, take it from a daughter who knows -- your daughter needs you. "Daughters and Dads" explains how you can connect with your daughter in the ways she wants and needs. Full of actual letters from daughters to their dads, "Daughters and Dads" puts into words the things your daughter has trouble telling you out loud, offering real hope for every daughter and dad.
This could be the most important book on parenting you'll ever read because how you act now will affect the rest of her life. Don't make her walk alone.
