review Our Fathers Ourselves

There's no denying that a woman's relationship with her father is one of the most important in her life And there's also no getting around how the uality of that relationship good bad or otherwise profoundly affects daughters in a multitude of waysIn Our Fathers Ourselves research psychologist author and scholar Dr Peggy Drexler Having never been anyone s daughter I didn t get any direct experience with the father daughter relationship until my own daughter was born My sisters were enough younger than me that I missed seeing a lot of their relationship with my dad too I enjoy spending time with my daughter and trying to understand how she sees the world I know that my wife feels my daughter can get pretty much anything she wants from me but what I see is that 1 I parent differently than she does and 2 I freuently go long with the ideas any of my kids have unless it really is dangerousWhat I liked best about this book is seeing how the daughters view their relationships with their fathers The details and anecdotes from a wide variety of sources are much useful in seeing the range of relationships than any scientific study would be I think Peggy Drexler chose a really good format for this bookOne part that stands out for me is the how well do you know your father section Not the uestions for discussion or ideas for thinking about or improving your relationship with your father but the examples of relationships that might need fixing or recasting I do know that I tend to like to solve problems not to the point of interrupting because I want all the details first when sometimes I need to remember that listening and commiserating may be what s really wantedMy only complaint is that the book is really written as if the daughter is the reader I m guessing that s intentional but it would have been nice to have even just a chapter like If you re the father reading this

O their dads for a less than traditional bond but one that still stands the test of time and provides support respect and guidance for the lives they lead today Our Fathers Ourselves is essential reading for any woman who has ever wondered how she could forge a closer connection with and gain a deeper understanding of her father Interesting anecdotes and good insight I wonder if the findings would be so strong if she had a diverse career demographic in her study But well written and thought provoking

    Utter dire and disgusting rubbishThis is a book from a past time when American women hadn't a clue about what their fathers really were that is pedophiles and satanistsBut Dr Drexler is right; fathers certainly do have an influence on their daughters As a therapist I see it every week women seeking help for stress and depression only to reveal hidden memories of satanic abuse or incest In Sweden feminists are c
