Teen and tween girls can be mystifying, even to sensitive and caring parents. But for fathers, the changes girls go through may take on a new dimension, especially if dad is single and trying his best to navigate these years with his daughter. Here, the authors take dads through the ins and outs of their girls' adolescent years. Exploring issues of physical changes, relationships, sex, drugs, alcohol, school, emotional issues, and other areas, the authors offer dads, particularly single dads, the skinny on how to be there for their girls without alienating them or adding to the strain. They offer advice on simple day to day things like what to keep in the fridge and what girls like to do in their spare time, to more complicated areas like moodiness and emotions, puberty, and emerging sexuality. No father, single or otherwise, should be without this field guide to parenting a teen or tween girl.
