Why A Daughter Needs A Dad Monday #1

What Now?

My wife gave me a book a few weeks back titled "Why A Daughter Needs A Dad, 100 Reasons" written by Gregory E. Lang and photographs by Janet Lankford-Moran. It is a fantastic book with 100 short reasons why Dads are so important to their daughters. I thought it would be a great way to start each week on my blog with one of these reasons. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Why A Daughter Needs A Dad #1:

To learn that when he says it will be okay soon, it will.

Peace out dads.


  1. Dads are so important to daughters. I know because I didn't have mine full time after age 12 and it did make a difference in my life. There was and unfortunately still is an emotional distance. I wish someone would have handed this book to my dad when he was making some of the decisions in his life.

    Nice way to start the week.

  2. Thanks for mentioning my book!

  3. This is by far one of my favorite books! It is a must give item for me for all first time dads of little girls. Which reminds me...I need to go get one now. Love your blog!

  4. Reason #101 ~ To make sure daughter can have genuine 100% supermarket raised beef in her diet.

  5. i was at the bookstore, just skimming through books when i saw this one. I took it off the shelf, and i just let it fall open. The first thing I read was:
    "Fathers are there to comfort their daughters when they cry".
    I felt like crying. My dad seems to have trouble grasping this fact. And it sure as heck don't make me feel any better. 14 year old girl, crying silently in a bookstore. pathetic.
