Here is my top ten list of things all dads should tell their daughters.  Of course, this top ten list is a work-in-progress and I always reserve the right to change it as circumstances change.  Right now, though, these are the things that I think are most important to tell my daughter:

Dads and Daughters

Dads and Daughters

1.  “I love you”

2.  “I will keep you safe”

3.  “Treat other people the way that you want to be treated”

4.  “Make mistakes and learn from them”  We learn from our mistakes.  I will support you and your decisions and allow you to learn (but may have to explain why I am intervening if you need guidance to keep you safe).  And, yes, even daddies make mistakes.

5.  “Discover things and activities that you love”  Go with them.  Enjoy them.  These things are the things that make everything worthwhile.

6.  “Sometimes bad things happen to good people”  Yes, we all face adversity and struggles at points along the way.  Learn from these experiences and let them guide you to fuller enjoyment of all experiences

7.  “I really love spending time with you”

8.  “Laugh a lot”  Find humour in things – It makes life much more fun.

9.  “Sometimes you have to be patient and just wait”  These things that you often do have to wait for are oftentimes the best

10.  “Live for today but don’t ignore tomorrow”   Making short and long-term plans will help keep you on track and guide your decisions and actions.

Thank you very much for dropping by.  Please come back soon.

  1. I’ve got 1 daughter and 3 boys. She’s my little flower in the weed patch! Love this list. My daughter knows that she’s smart, stong, witty, clever, resourceful, and the light of my life!

    Dear Ty,

    Thank you so very much for taking the time to reply. I am very happy to connect with a fellow father who also sees the tremendous value in treating his daughter with loving and thoughtful parenting. While I do not have any sons, I am sure that they would also love to hear these things. Thanks for reaching out. I look forward to connecting with again in the very near future.

    All the best, Jason @ froogalism
