What does your daughter really want?

What does your daughter really want?

Ken Canfield of the National Center for Fathering has done research and found the top five things daughters want from their fathers:

  1. Daughters longed to hear their fathers communicate love and encouragement.
    “The best thing my dad has ever done for me is let me know he loves me.”
    “I wish my father would say, ‘I love you.'”
    “When my dad encourages me I feel like I can do anything.”
  2. Daughters wanted their fathers to take time to strengthen their relationship.
    “I wish my daddy wouldn’t work so much and spend more time with me.”
    “If I could add one thing to our relationship, I would add time.”
  3. Daughters asked their dads to communicate with them more and give them guidance.
    “If we talked more truthfully we would have a better relationship.”
    “I wish my dad would talk to me more and give me advice.”
    “I need more input from my dad.”
  4. Daughters wanted their fathers to seek to understand them.
    “Sometimes I feel like my father has no idea what I’m going through.”
    “I wish my father would try and understand me.”
  5. Daughters wanted their fathers to trust them more.
    “If I could add one thing to our relationship I would add trust.”
    “I wish my dad would trust me more.”

Hey Dads!  Let’s do all we can to love & nurture our daughters!
May the Lord bless you all.
