Improving Father-Daughter Relationships: A Guide for Women and Their Dads is essential reading for daughters and their fathers, as well as for their families and for therapists.

Showing how we can strengthen bonds by settling issues that divide us, her book explores a range of difficult issues from conflicts over money, to the daughter’s lifestyle or sexual orientation, to her parents’ divorce and dad’s remarriage. With quizzes and real-life examples to encourage us to examine beliefs that are limiting or complicating the connection between fathers and daughters, this guide helps us feel less isolated and enables us to create more joyful, honest, enriching relationships.

"Young girls face a myriad of changes and challenges as they navigate their way through adolescence.

" Young girls face a myriad of changes and challenges as they navigate their way through adolescence. Girls need the support of their fathers during this critical phase of their development. A girl's relationship with her father can dramatically affect her self-esteem. Girls who have loving supportive relationships with their fathers are likely to have higher self-esteem. Self-esteem increases the likelihood that girls will feel able to cope with the obstacles that arise during adolescence. Fathers have the potential to significantly impact the formation of their daughter's personality, level of self-esteem, confidence, and happiness during adolescence and into adulthood. Dynamic Duos is an example of a program designed to help fathers and daughters strengthen their relationships with each other in an effort to increase self-esteem and support the ongoing development of adolescent girls.

Author: Margo Maine
The first edition of this book added the term ''father hunger'' to everyday language, to explain the emptiness, and resulting food and body-image disorders, experienced by women with physically or emotionally absent fathers. Based on ten years of further study, this Second Edition of Father Hunger details the origins of the syndrome and its effect on the family, with new practical solutions to help dada and daughters understand and improve their relationships.

An expanded section for educators and therapists offers strategies and techniques for preventing impasses in treatment.

Dr. Earl Henslin, explores how the father-daughter relationship affects the adult daughter. Father-daughter relationships damaged by abuse, betrayal and abandonment can be healed and reconnected through understanding and forgiveness. "You Are Your Father's Daughter" is a book for adult daughters (and fathers) who want to heal or improve the father-daughter connection. It helps readers understand that a daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. A daughter's relationship with her father -- positive or painful -- affects who she is today. Every daughter has a deep, God-given need to be nurtured by her father. It is vital to a woman's development. A strong emotional and spiritual connection between a father and his daughter empowers her to achieve her God-given potential in the life. It provides a secure and safe foundation from which she can venture into the world. When the father-daughter connection is missing or broken by abuse, the daughter is robbed of the personal identity, feminine strength, private boundaries, self-respect, emotional health, and spiritual understanding that a godly father can give. This loss and the painful wound that results affects every area of her life -- relationships with men, role in the workplace, search for love and meaning in life. Dr. Henslin offers hope and healing to every daughter who knows the pain and loss of a broken, missing, or less-than-perfect father-daughter relationship. His compassionate understand and spiritual insight provide a pathway for restoration and a process for rebuilding the father-daughter bridge.

A father¿s presence is important in a daughter¿s life. He is the first man a little girl sees and knows. He demonstrates how men relate to women. But what happens when the father-daughter relationship is dysfunctional? Daddy answers that question. Included are fourteen memoirs that describe the impact a failed father-daughter relationship can have. These women share essays and narratives that detail various stages of breakdown. Whether an event occurred in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, each story explains how their father¿s physical, emotional, or psychological abandonment has affected them. The book is separated into two parts. Part I shows the proverbial truth in the phrase, hurt people hurt people. While some stories confirm why or how men mistreat their daughters, others show how daughters sometimes internalize neglect and continue the cycle either with the relationship they have with themselves, or others. Part II illustrates how compassion can lead towards a path of inner peace and happiness, no matter the state of the relationship.

"In-law relationships are multi-generational, multi-layered, and, like a kaleidoscope, a shifting amalgam of emotional colors. They are exceptionally important and, often, extremely complicated. They can be joyous and comforting and they can be disappointing and tension-filled. They can serve as a model for how to stay connected across generations for the well-being of grandparents, parents, and grandchildren, and as a bellwether for what to avoid. In this book, the authors describe the struggles as well as the triumphs that people encounter with their in-laws from the perspectives of both generations and suggest ways to improve the relationships"--

****READERS' FAVORITE 5-STAR AWARD WINNER**** "...Awesome... I really loved this book!" -Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite ============================== For WOMEN ...and FATHERS OF DAUGHTERS ============================== Here for the first time, you get to eavesdrop on men chatting with other men, when no woman is in the room, about the most wonderful and complicated relationship in their entire life... between a father and his daughter. [For Fathers] Raising a daughter is different from anything you will ever experience. Here for the first time you get a personal look at what it's really like from a father's perspective. This could be the best training manual ever for fathers of daughters because it's from real fathers. [For Women and Daughters] What have you always wanted to ask your father, but couldn't? Do you truly understand... when a man says something, there's often more going on beneath his words? Whether she realizes it or not, a woman learned much about what men are "really" like, and how she fits into a world mostly run by men, by watching and listening to the first man in her life, her father. But what if she missed something? What if there are secrets buried deep that most men will not share... secrets that could change a woman's entire understanding of what men (and her own dad) are "really" like? Here for the first time, behaviorist James I. Bond provides "…an emotional glimpse into the complex relationship between fathers and their daughters." Through powerful excerpts from personal interviews with 101 fathers of daughters, you get to eavesdrop on men chatting with other men, when no woman is in the room, about the most wonderful and complicated relationship in their entire life. Go where few women have ventured. Here's a subject rarely discussed—the private fears and feelings of fathers with daughters. Sometimes wildly funny, sometimes profoundly sad, this book could be the best training manual ever for understanding what men are really feeling, beneath their often carefully-guarded image. This collection from 101 personal interviews allows you to peer into a father's world of hidden feelings, words unsaid, and a complexity and joy that's too often misunderstood. ======================================= ***READERS' FAVORITE 5-STAR AWARD WINNER*** "You will surely be amazed at what these fathers reveal about the relationship they have with their own daughters, whether it is good or not so good. My dad and I had a wonderful relationship. And even though he is now in Heaven, I really enjoyed reading this book because it helps me to understand my dad and our relationship even more. This valuable book is so awesome that it is impossible to do more than touch the surface of the information included in a review. I highly recommend this book for all fathers and daughters to read. You will really be glad and I am sure your relationship will never be the same." Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite ======================================= "…Surprisingly candid…terrifically rewarding. For women, here's an emotional glimpse into the complex relationship between fathers and their daughters—from a father's perspective. Being the father of a daughter myself, I was really moved by the joys and heartaches many of these dads were willing to share." -Steve Harrison, Publisher, Radio-TV Interview Report (RTIR) =======================================
