Much has been written and said about the mother-daughter relationship. Unfortunately, the popes who are present, supportive and involved don’t always get the recognition they deserve. It’s a shame because the father-daughter relationship isn’t just special. It plays a key role in the growth and development of the child. Dad creates the gold standard for future romantic relationships.
As they get older, daughters often choose mates who have similar traits to their father. This means that dads are really modeling what their daughters are learning to expect from a relationship. This influence occurs in different ways.
First, how fathers behave towards their daughter is of key importance. Respectful and supportive fathers who keep their promises teach their daughters to expect this in their relationship. Daughters also see how their fathers behave in their romantic relationships. Finally, divorced dads should take note! The way a father communicates with his ex-wife can affect his daughter.
