I immediately loved this little “e-card” the first time I saw it. I don’t know who made it or with what intentions, but I am very sure it is spot on and deeply profound.
I wonder how many of us are keenly aware that we have a lot to say about who our daughter chooses for boyfriends and an eventual husband. Your daughter’s first, best and greatest example of how a man should treat a woman is her Daddy! She is watching, absorbing, gleaning and learning all the time. She hears what you say and what you don’t say. She sees you act and she notices your body language.
Your daughter is in your personal classroom and the main subject that is being taught is how a man should treat a woman. You are giving her the standards by which she will operate. You are giving her knowledge of what to expect or what NOT to expect.
Question: Do you want your daughter to be treated right by a boy? Then show her what it looks like to treat a woman right.
Question: Do you want her to make a great choice in a future husband? Then be a great husband and show her what one looks like.
Question: Is it possible for your daughter to have too high of standards for her future boyfriend or husband?
Make it hard for a future guy to jump over the bar because you have set the bar so incredibly high by your actions.
We’re talking about your daughter and your grand kids here!
