Parenting Quotes from Dr. Meg Meeker

Dads, you are far more powerful than you think you are. My goal in writing this book is to show you how to use your power to improve your life with your daughter, and by doing so to make you like remarkably richer, more rewarding and more beneficial to those you love. The concepts presented are profoundly simple. But we all know how difficult it is to implement simple truths. We know we should love better. Or be more patient. Or be more courageous, or diligent, or faithful. But can we? – “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets,” introduction page xiv

Even if you feel like it’s too late, that she’s too far gone from you, run to find her. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how old she is. She is still your daughter. You are still her father. – “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 Secrets,” page 233

Time is what your daughter wants most from you. Nothing communicates the priority of family more than the willingness to spend relaxed time with her. Nothing makes a girl feel more valuable than recognizing her father enjoys her company … This will make a huge impact on her sense of value. – “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters Devotional,” page 27
