The quality of a father-daughter relationship plays a vital role in her journey to adulthood and influences her outlook to life generally. How a father treats his daughter usually has an effect on her relationship with other men throughout her teenage and adult life. A daughter looks to her father for affection, respect, and affirmation. Where she gets this in healthy doses from an early age, she will usually expect the same type of treatment from other males in her life and it highly unlikely that she would tolerate men who treat her disrespectfully or abusively. If, on the other hand, she has become accustomed to living with neglect, criticism, and abuse, she may spend decades enduring the same from predatory men.
Love and CARE should characterize a healthy father-daughter relationship. On this episode of the Wake Up Nigeria Show, I shared a few tips on ways fathers can foster a healthy relationship with their daughters.
It’s jokingly been said that men never know what a woman wants. I may not be able to speak for all women BUT giving you daughter regular doses of CARE is guaranteed to work wonders.
