Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall and hear straight from a girl why they think the relationship with their father is so special, unique, and necessary? Why is raising a daughter different from raising a son?
I met with some teenage girls recently and asked them that question. Some of their answers may confirm what you already know, and some may surprise you.
Listen in…..girls answer the question “why it is important to have their dad in their life”….
“you know what good love is”
“a good example of who you want to marry”
“your dad gives you a role model of what you want to look for in a guy, if you don’t see it, you don’t know”
“you need someone to look up to – also – someone who reflects what God is like and that Father image and how to be treated as a girl”
“He is the 1st man you love, the 1st man you trust”
“to protect your heart, soul and even your body”
“He’ll tell you you’re worth something despite what other people say”
Thanks for being a part of this whole conversation! It’s worth talking about! You are a massive voice in the life of the women and young women around you. They are listening to you and watching you more than you may realize.
