I am thrilled to share this with you...There are so many men who are interested in Father Daughter Relationships! BRAVO! We take our hats off to you (okay, I do!) for taking an interest in such an important topic. I'd love to hear what motivated you!
Many of you have personal questions and I'm happy to answer them all. However, the answers that I offer you can help so many others. So, please feel free to ask me anything here, keeping yourself anonymous, while helping someone else find out their answers.
I've always kept stash of my original 1st Edition of "FatherEffects: How Your Father Influenced Who You Are & Who You Love." Although my online FatherDaughter Effects Workshop is the new, improved version of the book, with self help lessons that follow each chapter, there are many people that love the feel of a book in their hands. (I'm one of those people!). There are a limited number of books left and I won't be reprinting them (the trees are smiling). So, I invite you to visit my website; www.fatherdaughtereffects.com and download the first chapter for free or simply purchase the book. If you tell me who the book is for, I will write a personal note and sign it.
My father left when I was 3 years old. Okay, he and my mother divorced and she wanted him out. But, explain that to a little child. All I knew was that one day he was living with us and the next day he was gone. Of course, I saw him. But the absence in the home was baffling. I'm a tough girl and I have weathered many storms. I know how I became that way. You learn at a very young age, when your father leaves your home, that the world is not a stable place. As I became older, I saw all men as I saw my father. You never know when they're going to leave you. So, as a young woman, I chose to end every one of my relationships...even when they were good...just so the guy wouldn't leave me first! Who needed a repeat performance of that childhood experience? It took me years to figure this all out (and several degrees, too!) but I did. And I want to share my advice and thoughts with you. But, lets hear your story. First, I'd love to have you participate in my survey. It will not take you more then 3 minutes...unless you really start thinking about your childhood. Fill out the survey and come back to me to tell me about your childhood memories of your father! Are you repeating patterns, too? Food for thought...
