The role of a father in raising a daughter is no less important than the role of a mother. A girl can develop harmoniously only with the participation of both parents in the upbringing. However, it is usually difficult for men to understand what their role in this process is. They do not have an instinct that would tell you how to behave with a child. Meanwhile, the role of a father in raising a daughter is important at every stage of her life. Admire your wife- The daughter’s femininity is formed depending on how much the father values these traits in his wife. Psychologists advise fathers of daughters to be gentle in dealing with their wife, not to swear in the presence of a child, to compliment her, to be attentive to requests. All this greatly affects the formation of the right type of relationship in the future family of your daughter. Learn to listen without judgment- Communication with the daughter plays one of the key roles in building relationships with the father. The girl will probably want to share with you the details of her school or kindergarten life, talk about friends and the first experience of communicating with boys. Chat with the little princess as if you were best friends. Just half an hour of active listening a day can guarantee your daughter’s trust for many years to come.
Offer Help When Needed- It is important for a girl that she can fully rely on a man in any situation. In most cases, you help her simply by listening. But sometimes you need to take some action. Protect your daughter if she is bullied at school, or offer to help her if you can somehow solve her problems. Ask about your daughter’s emotions- Girls need to share their emotions with their father. As a rule, daughters themselves share their feelings in conversation and in their stories, but sometimes they are shy. The questions “How do you feel about this?” help here. Such emotional emancipation with the father gives the daughter protection and inner confidence. Let her feel and worry, from time to time she cries and acts up. If a girl from childhood knows how to openly talk about her emotions to a man, then a happy family future is guaranteed to her.
