The first research-based text that focuses on the impact of the father-daughter relationship, this provocative book examines the factors that can strengthen or weaken these relationships and the impact that these relationships have on society. The research is brought to life with compelling personal stories from fathers and daughters, including well-known celebrities and politicians. Controversial questions engage the reader and film lists and website resources demonstrate the relevance of the research. Boxed quizzes and questionnaires show students how the research can be applied to their own lives while others highlight the relationships between actual fathers and daughters. Bold faced terms, a conclusion, and review questions keep readers focused on the key concepts. How these relationships are often ignored or denigrated in the media and in some mental health and legal systems is examined. The hope is that readers will apply the research to their own families and/or work. The book addresses: What is "good" fathering? How do daughters influence their fathers' well-being? How do fathers affect their daughters' social, academic, athletic, and psychological development? How are problems such as depression, eating disorders, and teenage pregnancy related to the quality of these relationships? How are father-daughter relationships in ethnic and racial groups unique? How do incarceration, abuse, gay or lesbian relationships, military service, immigration, and poverty affect father-daughter relationships? The book opens with the importance of the father’s role on daughters and the changing patterns of these roles. Chapter 2 examines the myths and misconceptions of father-daughter relationships including how they are portrayed in the media and the differences between parenting styles. Chapter 3 explores the behaviors that constitute "good" fathering. Scales used to measure "good" fathering are included. How fathers affect their daughters’ social, academic, intellectual, athletic, and psychological development is then considered. Factors that can weaken father-daughter relationships, such as divorce, including various theoretical perspectives, are explored in chapters 5 and 6. Father-daughter relationships of racial or ethnic minorities and an array of potentially destructive situations that affect these relationships are the focus of chapters 7 and 8. The impact of fathers who are incarcerated, abusive, alcoholics, gay, or sperm donors are considered. The book concludes with suggestions on where we go from here. Intended as a supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses on father-daughter relationships and/or parenting taught in human development, family studies, psychology, sociology, counseling, social work, and women’s studies, this practical book also appeals to mental health practitioners, social workers, legal professionals, and school counselors interested in these relationships.

Daddy Reflections of Father Daughter Relationships
Release on 2018-05-25 | by K E Garland
I had been praying about how to further improve my relationship with Dad, and I felt God was leading me to this moment. I humbly approached him, bringing a gift with me, and asked him to see Mark from my perspective.
A father¿s presence is important in a daughter¿s life. He is the first man a little girl sees and knows. He demonstrates how men relate to women. But what happens when the father-daughter relationship is dysfunctional? Daddy answers that question. Included are fourteen memoirs that describe the impact a failed father-daughter relationship can have. These women share essays and narratives that detail various stages of breakdown. Whether an event occurred in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, each story explains how their father¿s physical, emotional, or psychological abandonment has affected them. The book is separated into two parts. Part I shows the proverbial truth in the phrase, hurt people hurt people. While some stories confirm why or how men mistreat their daughters, others show how daughters sometimes internalize neglect and continue the cycle either with the relationship they have with themselves, or others. Part II illustrates how compassion can lead towards a path of inner peace and happiness, no matter the state of the relationship.
Strengthening Father daughter Relationships to Improve the Self esteem of Adolescent Girls
Release on 2014 | by Christina Fraser
"Young girls face a myriad of changes and challenges as they navigate their way through adolescence.
" Young girls face a myriad of changes and challenges as they navigate their way through adolescence. Girls need the support of their fathers during this critical phase of their development. A girl's relationship with her father can dramatically affect her self-esteem. Girls who have loving supportive relationships with their fathers are likely to have higher self-esteem. Self-esteem increases the likelihood that girls will feel able to cope with the obstacles that arise during adolescence. Fathers have the potential to significantly impact the formation of their daughter's personality, level of self-esteem, confidence, and happiness during adolescence and into adulthood. Dynamic Duos is an example of a program designed to help fathers and daughters strengthen their relationships with each other in an effort to increase self-esteem and support the ongoing development of adolescent girls.

Improving Communication in Father and Daughter Relationships
Release on 2016 | by Bruce R. Bennett
While extensive research has been conducted regarding communication within the family dynamic and the problems associated with poor or ineffective communication, little research exists regarding the area of father to daughter communication.
While extensive research has been conducted regarding communication within the family dynamic and the problems associated with poor or ineffective communication, little research exists regarding the area of father to daughter communication. Fathers and their daughters have unique relationships. In a similar fashion, their communication behaviors are often much different than mother-daughter patterns. While it is well documented that interpersonal communication methods are often key indicators of satisfaction with relationships, there are plenty of questions as to why father-daughter communication behaviors differ, where those differences originate, and how they can be improved. This paper will delineate the various barriers to father-daughter (F-D) communication while assessing the current research on the topic. Another factor in the discussion of communication barriers between fathers and daughters is the part gender and role definitions play and how they create obstacles to effective communication. This project aims to coalesce the current research on F-D communication and more specifically the areas of conversation orientation and barriers to communication. A documentary film will articulate the issues using both expers in the field and fathers and daughters themselves emphasizing success stories and the dramatic impact that appropriate F-D communication can have in changing the lives, for the better, of families, and by extension communities at large.
