‘Daughters love to boast how strict their dads are…this allows them to ‘show off’ how much their fathers love them’

Los Angeles, CA–An interesting excerpt from Dr. Meg Meeker’s Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: “Dads, you are far more powerful than you think you are. You are nothing less than the epicenter of that little girl”s world. “Daughters are never lukewarm in the presence of their fathers. They watch you intensely. They hang on your words.
They hope for your attention, and they wait for it in frustration–or in despair. They need a gesture of approval, a nod of encouragement, or even simple eye contact to let them know you care and are willing to help. “When she”s in your company, your daughter tries harder to excel. When you teach her, she learns more rapidly. When you guide her, she gains confidence. If you fully understood just how profoundly you can influence your daughter”s life, you would be terrified, overwhelmed, or both…. “Let me tell you a secret about daughters of all ages. [Daughters] love to boast about how tough their dads are–not just physically, but how strict and demanding they are. Why? Because this allows daughters to ‘show off” how much their fathers love them.”
