Our culture pressures tween girls to grow up too fast and develop attachments with boys too soon. One great way you as a father can protect your girl is to spend quality dad-and-daughter time. Bob and Dannah Gresh, creators of the Secret Keeper Girl events, have put together an easy-to-use resource for creative father-and-daughter dates with your 8- to 12-year-old girl. These dates help you tackle big questions like...What was God thinking when he made girls so that we like boys?; Why is everyone boy-crazy? Do I have to be?; When can I start to date?; How can I stand out from others and be pure without losing all my friends? A personal pull-out section for your daughter and online audio conversations with Bob and Dannah offer more ways to build your father-and-daughter connection - and to love and protect your little girl as she grows into a young woman. More about this series - The 8 Great Dates books offer parents solid, godly advice on connecting with their tween girls. Each book provides everything you need to plan and carry out eight fun get-togethers with your girl - perfect one-on-one or for a small group of parents and their energetic 8- to 12-year-old daughters.
Every date is full of fun - while at the same time focusing on one topic that's important to a tween girl's life and imparting a life- and faith-enhancing message.
