Read this book and be sure that you give copies to every father of a daughter. He will rise up and call you blessed. His daughters will too!"

Jay Payleitner mixes humor with wisdom and biblical insights to help strengthen the bonds between family members. 52 Things Daughters Need from their Dads is a playbook that gives a father the tools he can use for building a lasting and loving relationship."
Karol Ladd, bestselling author of The Power of a Positive Mom

"Although raising a daughter seems foreign and frightening to many men, we play a huge role in our little girls' lives. In this book, my friend Jay provides dads with a wealth of insights and practical ideas that will help them invest wisely in their daughters' lives. Maybe best of all, he does it in a way that allows dads to smile and get rid of the fright. He instills confidence that you can have a close and difference-making relationship with your daughter."
Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering, radio host of Today's Father, and author of Championship Fathering

"Just about all the dads I know want their relationship with their daughters to be the best it can possibly be. But then life interrupts. We get distracted with other things and before we know it, she's out the door pursuing life on her own. 52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads is so helpful not only because it reminds us of the priority our daughters should have in our lives, it also gives us creative, useful ideas for how to create an unbreakable bond with them. Thanks, Jay, for your heart to help all of us dads!"
Wayne Shepherd, national Christian radio host of First Person with Wayne Shepherd

Reviewed by Lela Buchanan for Readers' Favorite There are many self-help, how-to books on almost any subject you can think of but few of them are relevant for everyday living. Although the title may seem narrow, the message in this book is not. It is applicable to anyone in relationship, but specifically geared to the father/daughter relationship. "52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads" by Jay Payleitner offers an in-depth look at wise and practical ways a father can build a lasting relationship with his daughter. Payleitner states: ". . . no matter what their gender, you have to be intentional about pouring your love, commitment, and compassion into their little hearts from the day they are conceived until the day you die . . . that challenge is going to take . . . time, energy and creativity . . ." He adds that one of the most important tasks a parent has is to "help every child you may have to reach [his or her] highest potential." The chapters are short and easy to understand, closing with a "takeaway" or an introspective thought or suggestion to ponder on and implement. "52 Things Daughters Need from Their Dads" is a carefully thought out instruction book, tested and tried by the author, that will enhance your relationship with your daughter and, I dare say, with your son or spouse or friend. The content is relevant for the times and readily utilized without major expense. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, wishing I still had my dad, wishing I had been a wiser parent myself. Whatever relationships you may have, this book could provide an invaluable tool to making it a stronger one!
