The bond between a father and his little girl is something special, something so strong that it cannot be broken. Fathers are strong examples in their daughter’s lives and they influence many of their life choices and decisions. Girls who grow up with a loving, supporting father by their side are more emotionally secure and confident, make better decisions and lead a more successful life in the future. That’s why fathers need to be more present in their lives and be a good example for them, if they want their little girls to grow up into successful, confident young women.
But it’s not just the way fathers treat their daughters, it’s how they treat everyone else as well. From day one, children observe how their parents behave towards one another and this relationship sets an example for them as grown ups. There should always be love, compassion and understanding between the parents if they want their children to have a healthy idea for a relationship. A husband should always show love, respect and appreciation towards his wife so that his daughter can learn how a man should treat a woman. He should love his wife the way he wants his daughter to be loved when she grows up and show a good example because then and only then will she know that she shouldn’t settle for anything less than she deserves.
Fathers need to show their daughters how much they love them too, make sure they feel safe and secure and most of all, loved. It’s so easy for a little girl to develop self-esteem issues if she was deprived from her father’s love. The father needs to show his daughter that they’re amazing, smart, capable of conquering the world if they set their mind to. Raise your daughters into the women you know they can become, show them that they can aim for the stars if they want to and that only the sky is their limit.
Even when they grow up, daughters need their father’s support and love. They need to know that even if the hard times come, their father will always be there for them, for whatever they need, until the storm passes by. They will make mistakes, undoubtedly, because not even fathers can protect their little girls from everything, no matter how hard they try. But they need to learn that it’s OK to make mistakes as long as you learn from them, grow and do better next time.
Girls look up to their fathers and see in him the golden standard of what a man should be like. That’s why you need to be careful of how you behave in front of your little girl and show her the best qualities she should be looking for when she grows up. Your actions will determine what she will be looking for in a partner for herself so you better make sure that you’re a good role model. Help your daughter choose the right partner by being the best version of yourself you could possibly be. You may think she’s still too young but let’s be real, she’ll always be too young in your eyes. Don’t be too protective of her and let her make her own choices. You should accept the fact that probably no man will be good enough for your little princess in your eyes but if you’ve raised her well you should trust that she will choose wisely. Even if she makes a mistake, just be there for her and help her through her heartache.
A father is one of the most important male role models in his daughter’s life and as long as he shows love, compassion and respect, his daughter will grow up to be a smart, beautiful woman.
