In this short Ask Carey video, I share just a few thoughts about Why Dads Are So Important to Daughters. Here are my thoughts, but I hope you’ll share more of your ideas in the comments below…
Dads, what have you noticed? When have you seen how much your daughter needs your influence or comfort or love? Tweet this! Please join the discussion either below or at our Facebook page.
Are you eager for more insights and tips to use with your daughter? Check out this week’s “Tools for the Journey” for 10 Things to Teach Your Daughter, or see all of our content for dads of daughters in our Resource Center.
- Value your daughter’s opinions. Listen to her and express confidence that she can succeed in whatever she pursues, and despite whatever obstacles she may face.
- Practice your daughter’s favorite sport with her—golf, tennis, volleyball, or whatever—for as long as she wants to.
