A girl’s relationship with her Daddy influences all her future relationships with men.
Dad’s can show their daughters:
- how to love
- how to play
- how to follow the rules
- how to bend the rules
- how to completely flout the rules
- how to feel safe with a man
- how to disagree
- how to behave in the world
- how to debate
- how to think
- how to have fun
- how a man behaves towards his partner
- how a man expresses his feelings
- how no man is perfect
- how to be loved
Dad’s matter. Although this site is aimed at mothers supporting their daughters, fathers have a crucial part to play in their daughters lives, especially as girls journey towards young womanhood.
It is common for fathers to feel unsure about how to relate to their daughters as they come of age.
It can help if Dads can remember how much their daughters learn just from them being a good role model. It can help if Dads can prioritise having an honest, honourable, healthy relationship with their daughters, above any other concerns they may have about their girl’s behaviour. It can help if Mums do not inhibit Dads from forming their own particular relationship with their daughter. It helps if Dads are appreciated.
