What a Daughter Needs from Her Dad by Michael Farris Book Review


Michael Farris is the father of six daughters and four sons. He is the president of Patrick Henry College, a constitutional lawyer and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association. He counsels men and women on parenting issues.

As the father of six daughters, Farris offers solid and tested advice on virtually every situation that may arise in raising a daughter. He speaks from a conservative Biblical approach that is lacking in many similar books on the market, and in present day society where parenting choices are often influenced by the current television sitcom standards.

At first glance, the reader may wonder how a conservative approach can be effective in our world where popular standards are far from Biblical. However, I found that this book offers practical counsel with Mr. Farris using personal illustrations of how God-centered spiritual guidelines are steadfast, effective and relevant, making it more than worth reading to the end.

We, as Christians, still often forget that God is the One "who does not change like the shifting shadows." James 1:17b

Mr. Farris offers an organized step by step plan for issues such as:
  • Setting spiritual goals
    "If we want a spiritually fuzzy result, then spiritually random activity will work nicely"

  • Clothing choices
    "Your goal is to develop a lifetime habit that ensures that her inner sense of beauty and attractiveness is not set by those who don’t share her moral code"

  • Choosing friends
    "Friendships are not neutral. Interaction between two people usually results in some kind of movement - up or down - in values and behavior."

  • Physical and emotional purity
    "Physical abstinence protects the body; emotional abstinence protects the heart."

  • Courtship and marriage

  • Preparing for career choices

  • Civic responsibility

  • And more

If you are the father (or mother) of a daughter, this book will give you parenting options that are worth considering. Even one of Farris’ suggestions would make it well worth your reading time.
