From The Publisher*

An expert in father-daughter relationships shows daughters how to forge a new path to communication with their fathers

Psychologist Linda Nielsen shows readers how every daughter can transform her relationship with her father--if she is willing to be the adult who does the emotional embracing rather than the angry, hurt little girl waiting for Daddy to embrace her. Based on her popular Fathers and Daughters course--the first in the country devoted to exploring father-daughter relationships--Nielsen shows every woman how to:

  • Go first and initiate a better relationship
  • Examine her expectations regarding her relationship with her father
  • Cultivate self-reliance
  • Get to know her father as a person
  • Explore her mother's role in the relationship
  • Stay connected, even through divorce
