  • The key relationship for your daughter is your daughter’s relationship with her dad. If not dad, then a male like grandfather or a much older brother can take that role.
  • You, Dad, represent all of masculinity to your daughter.
  • Dads can bless their daughters by talking about how young men view girls, how her outfits effect boys and how boys are affected by her actions.
  • It doesn’t take long for a daughter to get inside her father’s heart.
  • If you have a critical eye, or are a flaw-picker, stop before you make her life miserable.
  • Give her lots of encouragement. She is looking to be accepted by YOU.
  • She needs to feel valued by her dad.
  • Wives, never put your husband down in front of your daughter. It shows her that she can tear into her own husband some day.
  • A good dad means taking an interest in what your daughter is interested in, encouraging her, being a steady hand in her life, and listening to her heart.
  • She needs to know that you love her no matter what.
