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. Loving fathers who praise, support and love their daughters unconditionally give them confidence and high self-esteem.
Daughters with these traits grow up to be happy and successful adults. What’s more, dads don’t have to go to extreme lengths to make this happen. Just being there, encouraging, and being able to listen is often all that daughters need to thrive. Girls whose fathers are involved in their education often do better in school.
When fathers encourage their children to do well in school, help them when they have learning difficulties, and give them access to tools such as learning aid, daughters can achieve amazing success. Small actions like helping with homework or encouraging daughters to take difficult courses can make a big difference. Dads volunteering in schools demonstrate how important education is.
