Father-Daughter Relationship

Hits: 3235

When girls enter adolescence and begin to turn to their mothers for advice about the changes they are experiencing, this can be isolating for fathers. It is often difficult for fathers to know what their role should be in their daughter’s life now that she is becoming a woman. It is important to remember that your daughter needs you now more than ever. Teenage girls need the affection and advice of their fathers in order to feel fulfilled in their development. 

When it feels difficult to know what your daughter needs from you, just ask her! You and your daughter should feel confident that you have the skills to communicate your needs and work together to support each other. If your daughter seems unsure of what she requires from you, just knowing that you are there for her is the best thing you can offer as a father.
