Publisher's Description

Back Cover Copy:

"I want to marry somebody just like..."

Surprise! 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 acclaimed psychologist, New York Times best-selling author, and father of four daughters, will show you how to:

  • make each daughter feel unique, special, valued, and receptive to your ideas.
  • discipline the right way.
  • 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 relational success.

Whether your daughter lives with you part-time, full-time, or not at all, you can gain a warm, lifelong relationship—one based on mutual love and respect.

Flap Copy:

Do I have to be a perfect dad?

Being a dad to daughters is hard. What with the hair bows, the drama, and having to talk about your feelings all of the time—it seems men and women really are from different planets. So what does a dad need to do to connect? And how can you be:

  • actively engaged in your daughter's life?
  • happily nestled as the #1 man in her heart?
  • proudly entrenched as the rock-solid foundation of the family?

You, smart dad, can make a lasting difference. And you don't have to be perfect—just an involved, caring dad. The simple yet profound suggestions in Be the Dad She Needs You to Be will transform your relationship with your daughter and motivate you to be the kind of man your daughter needs you to be . . . for a lifetime.

    Be The Dad She Needs You to Be is a very practical book by Dr. Kevin Leman. It offers practical advice to fathers raising their daughters at various age groups, and the importance of fathers playing an active role in their daughters lives. His book offers practical advice at the various age groups such as what to do when siblings fight, conflict resolution, building up your daughters self-concept (and the importance of it), how to have the talk, how to present themselves clothing wise, dating advice, and what type of boy to marry. It takes a dad through the various stages of maturity in his daughter and guides him through it. Not only are the solutions practical and easy to implement, but they are tactful, sensitive, compassionate, and demonstrates to a dad how/when to convey a message effectively. Dr. Leman discusses using teaching opportunities to convey messages to your daughter in a way that she understands, and is both effective, and efficient. The book helps fathers to understand their daughters better. It teaches them how to develop a closer, more trusting relationship, and how to be effective communicators without coming across as angry, harsh, or critical.

    This book is written in a way that men will find easy to understand and implement. Its assessments on women are accurate, and it will aid fathers deeply in bonding with their daughters. After reading this book, fathers will gain greater insight into what to do when faced with certain situations, and how to effectively resolve them without losing their temper or acting what teens may feel is irrational, old-fashioned, or over-protective. It gives men the tools needed to help their daughters grow up to be independent, confident women with sound judgment. The only critical element that I really found is that he presents biblical principles, but never quotes scripture, or references God. I felt that he also discussed more of a worldly concept of dating as opposed to a biblical, and Im not sure that I feel that his presentation on discussing sex with daughters is entirely sound. Parts of it are fine, but other aspects are a little awkward and too personal of a conversation to have with your child.

    However, the use of behavior modification techniques are very effective in child rearing, as is the advice on how to treat your wife. Dr. Leman discusses why men should communicate in a suggested manner which gives men greater insight into effective communication with a female, and a deeper understanding.

    I would personally give this book a four stars out of five based on the fact that he presents biblical concepts (for the most part) and practical, easy to implement solutions, but fails to draw correlations to scripture. It was a bit too much on the worldly side for me.

    Dr Leman explains that this book is primarily for dads who "with just a little effort on your part, you can gain the kind of relationship you dream of with your daughter - one based on mutual love and respect". And this is important because he believes that "her self-esteem, choices, behaviour, character and even her idea about a marriage partner are all directly tied to you".

    I liked this book and found enough helpful suggestions in it that I would recommend it to other people. I read it from cover to cover and could have lived without some of the stories, however, the pace of the writing is fast. Leman keeps you reading and interested, although there are times when I am annoyed by his examples. But as book to skim through and dwell in every now and then I think it has something to offer. I found myself reading out suggestions to my husband, and I would recommend it to others.

    I bought this for use by my daughter's significant other (fiance) to help guide my grand daughter (13yr). I had no clue as to what my daughter needed 50 + years ago. This would have been invaluable!!

    We of the male gender need all the help we can get to better communicate with the female gender - especially our daughters.

    I certainly want to be the Dad she needs me to be, don't you? Since three of my six children are girls, I was totally intrigued by Dr. Leman's subject. Fortunately, the book lived up to its expectations for me. My wife has read several of his books, but this was my first one. He is worth reading! In an engaging, personal style, he gets you thinking on deeply important subject matter. I laid this book down with definate knowledge of where I need to tweak my parenting of my daughters.

    He masterfully explained how girls are so different, and so bewildering to we fathers, yet they need us so badly in their lives. The sobering fact that the kind of confidence she will have in life, and the corresponding choices she will make, particularly about relationships, will come from me. He then spends the balance of the book telling me not how to be a perfect Dad, but a good Dad. A Dad who really impacts her life to the good.

    He leads past the idea that we can just criticize and command them to be the person we want them to be. We must purposely leave an "indelible imprint" on them. Sadly, we actually will leave one no matter what-that is why we must be purposeful. We must realize that every child we have is different so we have to know her heart. There is no foolproof little 10 Steps To Perfect Parenting. In the case of daughters, ours is the relationship that matters most.

    He explained how we Dads are different, but that is good. She needs our approval, not another girlfriend in us. She needs me to live a "disciplined, balanced" life in front of her to give her security. He coached us in how to be involved in "the talk". That is something we would rather pass off to her mother, but she needs to hear about men from me. If we don't, some other guy will! He also gave counsel on when there are catfights under your roof-we can be a help!

    There is so much more here. He has my ear even more because of how his daughters turned out, and how they now cherish him as father. What could be better than that? Thanks Dr. Lehman for an awesome book!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
