Publisher's Description

Most dads love their daughters, but they’re uncertain how they can show that love in a way their daughters understand…or figure out what their girls really need from them.

Jay Payleitner has given thousands of dads great, man-friendly advice in his bestselling 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad. Now Jay guides his readers into what is unexplored territory for many of them—girl land—giving them ways to…

  • do things with their daughters, not just for them
  • lecture less and listen more
  • be on the lookout for “hero moments” and take advantage of them
  • realize that their daughters are females…and tailor their actions and responses accordingly
  • give their daughters a positive view of the male sex

Dads will feel respected and encouraged—not made to feel guilty—and they’ll gain confidence to initiate activities that build lifelong positives into their girls. Great gift or men’s group resource.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is not only practical and incredibly insightful, but this is stuff I can immediately incorporate in relating to my three daughters. Jay Payleitner has done a wonderful job making this a go-to book for dads of daughters. Hint: Moms, buy this book for your husband!"
Jim Burns, president of HomeWord and author of Teenology and Confident Parenting

"In easy-to-swallow and to-the-point snippets, Jay gives dads fantastic advice. This is a great tool for any father who wants to be intentional about raising whole and healthy children in a culture that makes that task difficult. I love his approachable writing voice and the alarming but truthful cultural research you'll find in this book."
Dannah Gresh, author of Six Ways to Keep the "Little" in Your Girl and Six Ways to Keep the "Good" in Your Boy

"Every dad wants his daughter to grow up with dignity, self-respect, grace, humility, virtue and significance. These attributes do not come overnight. Jay's approach helps dads with the development of these desirable character traits from early childhood through walking them down the aisle. This man-of-God approach will play a major role in our daughters selecting a man of God for a husband."
Darrel Billups, executive director of the National Coalition of Ministries to Men

"Although raising a daughter seems foreign and frightening to many men, we play a huge role in our little girls' lives. In this book, my friend Jay provides dads with a wealth of insights and practical ideas that will help them invest wisely in their daughters' lives. Maybe best of all, he does it in a way that allows dads to smile and get rid of the fright. He instills confidence that you can have a close and difference-making relationship with your daughter."
Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering, radio host of Today's Father, and author of Championship Fathering

"What a wise and wonderful book! Jay Payleitner has given us not only 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads...he has given us 52 practical, funny, doable, and amazingly powerful things daughters need from their dads. Read this book and be sure that you give copies to every father of a daughter. He will rise up and call you blessed. His daughters will too!"
Steve Brown, popular author, seminary professor, and radio teacher on Key Life

"Dads have the unique opportunity to influence, guide, and encourage their daughters to grow into godly and gracious young ladies. Jay Payleitner mixes humor with wisdom and biblical insights to help strengthen the bonds between family members. 52 Things Daughters Need from their Dads is a playbook that gives a father the tools he can use for building a lasting and loving relationship."
Karol Ladd, bestselling author of The Power of a Positive Mom

"Payleitner has done it again! Each section of this treasure chest of wisdom contains insights on what every daughter needs from her daddy, and tips every man needs to think about—all in an easy-to-read format. Well done, my friend!"
Rick Johnson, bestselling author of Better Dads, Stronger Sons and That's My Girl

"Just about all the dads I know want their relationship with their daughters to be the best it can possibly be. But then life interrupts. We get distracted with other things and before we know it, she's out the door pursuing life on her own. 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads is so helpful not only because it reminds us of the priority our daughters should have in our lives, it also gives us creative, useful ideas for how to create an unbreakable bond with them. Thanks, Jay, for your heart to help all of us dads!"
Wayne Shepherd, national Christian radio host of First Person with Wayne Shepherd

    I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the idea of 52 things that a Dad could share with his daughter to further their relationship. I did however think some of them could have been merged together and narrowed down a bit. This book was filled from the beginning to the end with words! I don't know how else to describe this overly wordy book. Although there was great information dispersed throughout the book, I felt like most of the book could have been edited out! If the author had been more precise in his explanations of the 52 things the book would have been shorter and better organized. I did like some of the ideas the author had about spending time with your daughter. I liked how he explained how to be there starting when the girls are young so that when they go through the teenage years they know you will be right there supporting them. I also liked how he suggested dates with your daughter. I think that was one of the best ides in the book. If you are a Dad and want some ideas on how to connect with your daughter this book could definitely be helpful.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
