Rules for Dads of Daughters

1. Love her mom. Treat her mother with respect, honor, and a big heaping spoonful of public displays of affection. When she grows up, the odds are good that she'll fall in love with and marry someone who treats her much like you treated her mother. Good or bad, that's just the way it is. We prefer good.  

Rule 1: Love Her Mom



2. Always be there. Quality time doesn't happen without quantity time. Hang out together for no other reason than just to be in each other's presence. Be genuinely interested in the things that interest her. She needs her dad to be involved in her life at every stage. Don't just sit idly by while she adds years to her life... add life to her years.

Rule 2: Always Be There



3. Pray for her. Regularly. Passionately. Continually.

4. Dance with her. Start when she's a little girl or even when she's a baby. Don't wait until her wedding day.

Rule 4: Dance with Her

5. Tell her she's beautiful. Say it over and over again. Someday an animated movie or "beauty" magazine will try to convince her otherwise.

Rule 5: Tell Her She's Beautiful

6. Remember, just like a butterfly, she too will spread her wings and fly some day. Enjoy her caterpillar years while you can.

7. Write her a handwritten letter every year on her birthday. Give them to her when she goes off to college, becomes a mother herself, or when you think she needs them most.

Rule 7: Write an I Love You Note


8. Give her the gift of experiences you can share together instead of loading her up with presents for her birthday and Christmas.

Rule 8: Date Your Daughter

9. Never miss her birthday. In ten years she won't remember the present you gave her. She will remember if you weren't there.

Rule 9: Never Miss Her Birthday

10. Don't be late.  She will eagerly await your return home from work in the evenings.

    I have followed these top 10 as a father with my 4 children (2boys & 2girls). Things worked out just fine, they now have blessed me with 5 grandchildren. Today I'm repeating the 10 with a grandson who lives with me. His single parent mother and I try to follow all the rules without father he so needs to learn from! We take him to yearly All Pro Dad events and just love the whole day together!!!
