Dads and daughters, a woman’s perspective

In case you’ve ever wondered about the bond between dads and daughters, here’s a few paragraphs I just read that really resonate.

I’m not sure if daughters need their fathers even more than their sons do, but I do know that fathers are the most dominant male figure in a daughter’s life until she grows up and marries — many times someone “just like daddy.”

If young fathers could only grasp the awesome responsibility that comes with fatherhood, I am sure they would be more careful in choosing the pathway that their feet take. It has been said that a father’s most important role is to teach his son how to be a man, and to give his daughter the foundation for future relationships with men. The most important earthly relationship in a man’s life is always with his father. May God help our men to be the right kind of a father.

Read the full essay. You can skim over the Bible stuff if that’s not your cup of tea, but the parts about dads and daughters doesn’t rely on any religion. It’s a good piece on one woman’s feelings about being present with the people you love.
