Being a dad to a daughter comes with a lot of expectations. This is one job that requires a lot of hard work and you need to cater to the fact that someone you love expects a lot from you. Here we take a look at 15 things that all dads of daughters should know in a bid to keep their daughters happy and contended.
She Wants Love
More than the stuff you buy her or the things you teach her, she wants to be loved to the core. No one will ever take over your role as daddy and you are here to be the person she needs in her life. Give her that support.
Influence on Future Partner
They say that the kind of dad that a woman has, is the kind of person she looks for in her life. So, the kind of person you are around her is what she would be looking for from her husband going into the future.
Listen to Her Music
Your daughter wants to be loved and wants you to listen to the music she is listening to. Give all the Taylor Swifts, Cody Simpson and Katy Perry songs a listen, because these songs really do matter to her a lot.
Treat Her Mom Nicely
Although, you should be treating your wife nicely regardless of whether you have a daughter or not, but with a daughter in the home there is added responsibility on you to not go wrong here. Let her know that you love each other.
Be Emotionally Attached
Don't just shrink back as your daughters grow older. Be emotionally attached in their life and let them know that you're present through thick or thin and would be taking their side in whatever difficulty they face in life.
Just because you have a daughter does not mean that you should compromise on the health and wellness regime in your house. It is completely okay to have push-up and exercise drills with your daughter practicing besides you.
Do not forget that your chief purpose around her is to make good memories. Give her a good impression of you; so that she remembers how good an individual you were and what a support it was to have you around in her life.
Teach Her to Live for Others
You need to keep reminding your little girl that it isn't always about her in life. She isn't the only person in the world and life for her extends beyond being selfish. She should give service to others and should realize the perks of it.
Go to Her Events
There is no bigger disservice to your daughter than not showing up in her events. Show up in her events and let her know that you are there in the audience. Your presence will only motivate her to do bigger and better things.
Do Things Together
Just the simple fact that you think you're there never means that you're always there. Proximity never equals presence. And, instead of just trying to be close her, try doing things together with each others presence in life.
Teach her Beauty
Your daughter may have her reservations at time, because mommy surely can make a better ponytail, but there is nothing better than a dad helping her daughter out with beauty. This just shows the beauty of real family.
Dating your daughter just does not mean that you should spend money on her. You should make your daughter realize how a real man would treat her girl. This would give her a fresh perspective towards life and more.
Value her Heart
Her heart is really beautiful, so you really got to admire that heart and give her recognition for being besides you. She loves you as much as you do her and she knows that you will always have your back no matter what happens.
We will advice you against blinking, because shutting your eyes for even one second, will teleport you away from this role. This is a great time in life and you would never be able to experience euphoria comparable to having your daughter besides you.
Asking for Forgiveness
Every dad makes their mistakes on the way. It is normal for humans to make mistakes. But, with your daughter around you, always make sure to ask her for forgiveness. Don't let anything slide by and get a proper forgiveness from her.
