“Fathers, be good to your daughters. Daughters will love like you do” -John Mayer, Daughters
One of the greatest privileges of my life is being a dad to 4 great kids. One boy and 3 girls. Naturally, my son and I share a lot of “guy things” in common. But I share a very special bond with my 3 daughters that my son and I don’t have. It’s hard to explain, but daughters soften a man’s heart like nothing else can. Daughters know their dad is the last man on earth who would ever hurt them, and the first man who would lay down his life to protect them.
Dads sometimes think that raising girls, especially as they get older, is a mothers work. Moms fill a necessary and special role for sure, but girls always need their daddy too.
Below is a link to a post that every dad of a daughter needs to read. For me, the post is especially impactful, because it was shared with me by my older sister. As a faithful aunt to my 3 girls, my sister wants me to get what this post is saying!
The author rightly says, “Fathers, more than anyone else, set the course for a daughter’s life…If you fully understood just how profoundly you can influence your daughter’s life, you would be overwhelmed.”
