About this presentation: Fathers and Daughters with Madonna King

What do our girls think about their fathers? And what are fathers struggling with when it comes to their relationship with their daughters? Madonna King, the bestselling author of ‘Being 14’, now tackles the complicated father/daughter relationship.

Award-winning journalist, author and commentator Madonna King has interviewed over 500 girls and many fathers, as well as leading psychologists, school principals, CEOs, police, guidance counsellors and neuroscientists, to get the answers all mothers, fathers and daughters need to know.

Exploring a father’s role in his daughter’s life from a daughter’s perspective as well as the father’s, Madonna examines the key issues that arise to help families navigate the sometimes very difficult moments.

This essential and insightful book reveals why daughters turn against their fathers, teen rebellion, discipline, sexual education, the impact of broken families, how much influence a father can/should have and what you can do to repair a broken relationship.

‘Fathers and Daughters’ will give a voice to our girls, insight to our fathers and peace of mind to both.

Madonna King is one of Australia’s most accomplished journalists, having worked at senior levels of News Limited and the ABC (where Madonna presented the Mornings program in Brisbane for six years). Madonna writes for Fairfax’s Good Weekend, writes a highly successful weekly column for the Brisbane Times and has a regular radio spot on Brisbane’s 4BC. She has written seven books, including ‘Being 14’, ‘Hockey’, ‘Ian Frazer’ and ‘Bali 9’, all defined by her skilful reporting and her ability to get people to talk in depth. Madonna is also a parent of two girls.
