There is no greater achievement for a father than teaching his daughter the keys to happiness. From there, the life she lives is boundless with possibilities. John Griffith reveals the secrets to raising happy and confident daughters so that they can become the amazing and powerful world-changers they are destined to be. Today’s societal landscape makes this achievement both very difficult, and very necessary. Dads, you matter more to your daughters than you can really imagine. What an incredible privilege.
The voice of today’s society – the media – (unintentionally) works against happiness. There is a constant, streaming bombardment of “Bad News.” Young girls are encouraged to find power in sexuality, suffering, and entitlement. Addictive behavior is sensationalized and glamorized. Many in the media promote lying, deception, and revenge as profitable. There are even messages teaching how to get away with murder.
Where are the messages regarding the incredible power of choice, personal responsibility, and accountability? Why isn’t every growing girl told that she is responsible for her happiness?
The impact a father has on his daughter – especially during these modern times – is both profound and immense. Fathers can’t do much about the focus of the media. Smut sells. But, it is not the media’s duty to provide daughters with the tools necessary for a happy life.
In this one-of-a-kind, educational, witty, and humorous “fun guide,” Griffith reveals the secrets of happiness that every dad should teach his daughter so that she can grow into the amazing, powerful, world-changing woman she was meant to become.
Recognizing that a father’s impact upon his daughter is achieved through healthy and personal interactions, Griffith’s guidance is written in a format intended to be shared between father and daughter. Using the powerful tools of metaphoric story-telling, introspective letters, and creative activities, Griffith shares the seven keys to happiness that are critical to staving off the effect of the foes of happiness that permeate society today.
A Dad’s Fun Guide to Raising Happy Daughters is a beautiful, insightful, adorable read that will have you feeling very emotional as well as happy! This delightful book was a pleasure to read, as a mother, I adore my children and so does my husband, I only have one daughter – the rest are boys – but my husband and my daughter have an adorable relationship, and I think this is very important. I think a lot of people assume that daughters will only ever be close to their mum but this is not true, daughters can be just as close to their dad and the wonderful author of this book, John Griffith has expressed this perfectly throughout this book. Reading this book was a delight, and because I have two sisters, I could not help but think about my father who raised us; it was insightful to read this book from a fathers perspective, and so it did make me think about my upbringing! This incredible book is poignant as well as moving, and the author is a talent whos work should not be missed.
John Griffith has written an adorable book which looks at parenting in today’s society. His book is packed full of information, wisdom, values, the joy of learning and so much more.

This beautiful non-fiction book is inspirational, and I genuinely mean that. It is a book that will feel you with a warm feeling as you read it; I know that this book will be most useful to fathers, but as a mother, I could not help but fall in love with it. It shows the bond between parent and child and this is incredibly beautiful to me. This book is so much more than a parenting book; it is also very informative as Griffith covers learning subjects such as science, geography, history and even art but in a fun and inspiring way. His book will undoubtedly engage a parent, and so I thank him for writing such a memorable, charming book!
Griffith’s writing is flawless as well as eloquent. His words shine off the page, so much so that the reader feels compelled to read from beginning to end. His writing is easily readable, and in no way complicated, the format of the book alone is perfectly executed; so much so that you turn the pages effortlessly thanks to the easiness of the book. One aspect I enjoyed about this book and Griffiths writing was how inspiring and positive it was, positive people are my favorite kind, I cannot stand negativity, and so I was impressed to read a book that had an overwhelming sense of these two attributes. His words are meaningful as well as insightful, and so it would be hard for you not to love this book!
