To encourage and guide you in raising your daughters, Michael Farris (a father of six daughters himself!) addresses issues common in all families with daughters: friends, dating, personal appearance, and preparing for the roles she'll have as a woman. Michael Farris challenges fathers to take their unique opportunity to train daughters for life’s challenges—in ways that only a dad can. Originally published as "How a Man Prepares His Daughters for Life," it now includes new material on relating to an adult daughter.

Customer Review - "Wonderful Instruction For Fathers"
"I have two daughters and while I consider myself a good Christian father, this book was recommended as inspirational and motivational. So I picked it up. I am glad I did. There are many aspects about raising daughters that are well outlined in this book that I had not considered. The author does a great job of outlining the issues, thought processes and decision-making processes he and his wife used to address the issue, and the hind-sight view of those decisions throughout the book.
It was a pleasurable read that I completed in just one day (while on an airplane) because I just couldn't put it down. It was so good that I bought two more copies for colleagues of mine who also have daughters. I highly recommend this book for *any* father and not just those with daughters. Many of the points in the book can be applied to sons as well."
