Parent Resource: Dads and Their Daughters

Zenit recently interviewed Meg Meeker, the author of   "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets Every Father Should Know."  In the interview, Meeker talks about how dads have more of an effect on their daughter's lives than they may ever know.  Many self-esteem issues along with depression, and sexual activity of girls have been linked to fathers who have not played a supportive role in their daughter's lives.  The way a father treats his daughter is a strong indicator of how the girl will relate to men the rest of her life.
