Warm and fuzzy, anchored in values, and filled with simple words of wisdom, this beloved, bestselling book for parents speak to the important business of raising daughters, and distill their timeless lessons into one nugget of wisdom per page some lighthearted, some serious, some practical, and some intangible, and all supported by a strong moral backbone.

Freshly updated, the book begins with the Five Keys of Parenting, a guide to navigating the extraordinary, even if sometimes exasperating, journey of parenthood. It s filled with helpful reassurance: "Tickle her, play with her, give her piggyback rides. She s not breakable." And accepting bittersweet reality: " Prepare for the day when you re not the most important man in her life.""
