Values a Daughter must learn from her Father

Respect for a woman

This is a truly important value every girl needs to discover

And it is learned so much easier when there is a good father-daughter relationship.

The respectful way a dad treats his wife and daughter reflects his admiration and love.

And, by seeing their father’s ways day-to-day, daughters discover the true worth of this value.

And, when girls grow older

they are empowered with the ability to make the best relationship choices.

So Dads, make use of that solid father-daughter relationship you have created and each your daughter the way they need to be respected by a man. I am sure you can guess the flip side of this, many daughters unfortunately also learn from their dad’s example, the way a woman should not be treated

Please don’t put your daughter in that miserable situation.
