Raising a Father, Review of book by Arjun Sen

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Raising a Father. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today a search on family studies using the terms “fathers” and “daughters” does not show up blank, of course. An abundance of material is available, nearly all of it exploring the psychological effects of incest and other dysfunctions. Unfortunately, however, there is very little that would lead anyone to believe that more positive relationships even exist between fathers and daughters.

Sometimes the father-daughter relation's future is reduced to obligatory phone calls on birthdays and Father’s Day. This is the story of "Raising a Father" a book by Arjun Sen. Here Arjun Sen tells you how her daughter transformed his measurement of success from "position on the corporate staircase" to "depth of his father-daughter relation and amount of time spent with her". This is a story of Raka using all her charm, patience, love, and caring nature to teach her father how to be a better dad and person.

As Linda Nielsen, professor of adolescent psychology and women’s studies at Wake Forest University in North Carolina says:
They’re going to get a certain confidence that others find it harder to get. You’ve got to remember that in this culture, most of the people girls see who have power and authority are men. So if they can get praise and recognition from the man in their family, it does, for them, carry a certain weight. If they don’t have that father in their family, they’re going to go looking for that praise and recognition elsewhere. Those girls, as they enter their teenage years, are more likely to be desperate for male approval, constantly thinking about the next boyfriend, or what do the boys think about me, or how do I get the boys’ attention. But once they get one—boyfriend, fiancé, husband—they’re constantly worried about him leaving. And so they become suspicious, overly dependent; they make their boyfriend or husband nuts by clinging to him. Nobody wants someone hanging on them all the time, like a child. There is some fascinating research out there about the advantages fathers give their daughters. Part of the problem is just getting the public to pay attention to it.
