Directly challenging the feminist attack on traditional masculinity, Dr. Meeker demonstrates that the most important factor for girls growing up into confident, well-adjusted women is a strong father with conservative values. To have one, she shows, is the best protection against eating disorders, failure in school, STD's, unwed pregnancy, and drug or alcohol abuse-and the best predictor of academic achievement, successful marriage, and a satisfying emotional life.
"A touching, illuminating book that will prove valuable to all of us who are fortunate enough to have been blessed with daughters." --Michael Medved
