Fathers and daughters

 

Fathers cherish your girls,

Mothers to be good role models to your girls.

Just like the song by John Meyer, Fathers be good to your daughters and mothers be good to your daughters too.

In this digital age, more and more girls are looking to the media to get their identity and sense of self. Unfortunately, we all know the media is full of photo-shopped images trying to pass for beauty standards. Girls feel they need to measure up to these standards and when they can’t, they may end up with low self-esteem or worse depression.

It is important that parents continually let their girls know they are valued and loved. So they don’t look outside and fall into wrong relationships to find their sense of self-worth.

  • Being a good role model is important because it sets the standard for when the daughter begins to date.

    • Thank’s for the comment, Carol. Yes, I believe a father’s love makes a girl feel secure and confident in who she is and she won’t need to look for validation elsewhere.
