Dads and Their Daughters: Father-to-Father Strategies.
Rosenfeld, Anne, Ed.; DeNicola, Alicia, Ed.
The National Coalition of Girls' Schools is an organization of over 80 girls' boarding and day, private and public schools from across the United States with affiliates in Canada and Australia. Coalition members share a commitment to the values and advantages of an all-girls school. To that end, the organization has collected and conducted research on gender issues and developed a series of publications for girls, their parents, and educators. The essays in this booklet represent the voices of men who have chosen to share their personal experiences and willingly offer some simple yet powerful strategies that redefine what it means to be a father. Strategies are detailed in the following sections directed to fathers: (1) sharing your career with your daughter; (2) encouraging the leader in your daughter; (3) participating in athletics, which enhance father-daughter bonds; (4) being a role model and mentor; (5) building bonds between fathers and daughters; (6) reaching your daughter at school; and (7) encouraging math and science interests, and other useful strategies, such as helping your daughter's self-esteem.
