52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads

What Fathers Can Do to Build a Lasting Relationship

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.

A Word from the Author

“If you ever met my ray of sunshine—my daughter, Rae Anne—you would instantly want to know the secrets in this book. Rae is wise, tenacious, winsome, beautiful, tough, sweet, and unforgettable. (She’s also in her second year at West Point.) Her four older brothers would confirm she is the best of the bunch and clear proof that girls are different than boys. But really, this book is for all dads who love their daughters and want to be ready for the heartwarming moments, gut-wrenching fears, quirky surprises, and breathtaking emotions of raising a young lady to be all God has called her to be. Dad, you’re the right man for the job. Because no matter what age she is, she will always be your little girl.”
Jay Payleitner, author of 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads
