Abstract:

Most women want a close relationship with their fathers, but many have issues that create distance and so feel that dad should be the one to "go first". No matter how minor or major the need to improve things, he should take the first step to initiate contact, to try again, to ease tensions, to apologize, or to make a change for the good.; Yet, despite all the reasons for dad to "go first", that often doesn't work. In "Embracing Your Father", psychologist Linda Nielsen shows women how they can transform their relationship with their father if they are willing to be the adult who does the emotional embracing, not the silent, angry, sad, hurt or sullen little girl waiting for her daddy to embrace her.; Based on her "Father and Daughters" course, Nielsen uses quizzes, worksheets and activities, encouraging daughters to share more of themselves with their fathers and fathers to share more of themselves with their daughters. Readers will learn how to: examine your own beliefs and expectations regarding your relationship with your father; stop seeing your father as a wallet and to cultivate your own self-reliance; talk to your father without pretending, deceiving, clamming up or engaging in superficial chatting; get to know your father as a person, rather than just a parent; explore your mother's role in your relationship with your father; and create connections with your father, even through divorce and remarriage.
