Babies come in two kinds-boys and girls. We know that going into parenthood. Still, most dads get a little nervous when the nurse places in their arms a tiny bundle. They can relate to boys...football, toy trains, etc. A girl, on the other hand...well let's be honest. What in the world does a father do when he's invited for imaginary tea? Robert Wolgemuth puts these anxieties to rest, relating all the wonderful times that are waiting to be hand with a special little lady-your daughter. He focuses on what works, like "reading riddle books" and tenderness; and what doesn't, like comparing her to other girls and harsh punishment. Best of all, this is a book about making an investment in the life of a little girl who, some day, will become one of her daddy's closeset friends.
Babies come in two kinds, boys and girls. But many dads get a bit more nervous when told they are going home with a cute little bundle of joy . . . covered in pink! Robert Wolgemuth puts anxieties to rest, encouraging new fathers of the wonderful times waiting ahead, while providing practical guidance and encouragement for every father who is walking the journey of growing a confident, God-honoring woman who (still) calls him daddy.
This book, which has sold over 300,000 copies, has now been updated by the author (over 40% of the book is new material) and includes a foreword by Greg and Gary Smalley. Building on seven critical foundational elements (protect your daughter, teach the art of conversation, express affection, discipline appropriately, create laughter, instill faith in God, and demonstrate proper conduct) Wolgemuth suggests ways to actually get to know your little girl and foster a deep and ongoing connection at every age.
