Daddy's Little Girl (1/1)

Many of girls nowadays are drowning into the sea of insecurities and low self esteem and i blame our fathers for that. I think fathers nowadays not spending enough time and paying attention to theirs daughters. They come from their work and waste their time watching stupid news channels and political shows rather than spending their time with their family and then say "im tired im going to sleep" don't get me wrong i do appreciate all the fathers and all the hardwork they do all day to keep their family's tummy full but they should squeeze some time in just to spend some time with their family specially with thier daughters. Fathers should ask questions to their daughters like 'how was your day?" "what you wanted to become when you grow up?" and support them with their llife decisions. Fathers should take thier daughters to the park for a walk or for a long drive and most importantly tell them how beautiful lovely talented cute presious their daughters are. Tell them how proud father you are so this way your girls would not feel a need of some stranger to make the feel beautiful and confident and also this way f**k boys would not be able to a take advantage of your little girl's insecurities and little girl would not fall into the trapped of f***k boys.

Hi Bina. Welcome to World Pulse:-) Thanks for sharing your story. I think there are some fathers that solely feel like if they are the provider and bringing in income that their "duty" has been filled, but I also think there are quite a lot of fathers that also provide emotional support as well. It is just as important as being a financial provider. Personally, I would've been happy to have either parent ask me how my day had gone and/or what I wanted to do when I grew up. Both would've been wonderful. I think more and more parents are thinking more about what they didn't have growing up and what is needed to create well-balanced and happy children for the next generation. I do agree when we don't receive this support that we need growing up, that it can be easy to look outside of ourselves for support, encouragement and perceived "love."

Hello, Bina,

Welcome to World Pulse! :)

From your post, I assume that you are exposed to fathers being providers only, but do not take an extra mile on connecting with their daughters. Or probably, that is a cultural practice for men in your country which should not be.

I agree that fathers need to spend time with their daughters, and bond with them. Parenting is a huge responsibility. I hope men would think about this a thousand times before bringing a child to this world. Raising children, after all, should not solely rest upon a woman's role.

Thank you for sharing your opinion!

Hello, Bina,

Welcome to World Pulse! :)

Indeed, there are fathers who limit their roles as being providers only, but do not take an extra mile on connecting with their daughters. There are fathers also that stick to the cultural practices for men in a certain country. And there are those accidental fathers who did not plan to have a child yet. But I know of fathers, too, who are responsible enough to communicate with their daughters.

I agree that fathers need to spend time with their daughters, and bond with them. Parenting is a huge responsibility. I hope men would think about this a thousand times before bringing a child to this world. Raising children, after all, should not solely rest upon a woman's role.

Thank you for sharing your opinion!

Dear Bina,
This is true so often, and when I read the rare story of how supportive a father has been, it is encouraging. Your strong call out to fathers who have not discovered the precious value of daughters is a message that needs to travel far and wide. I hope that over your lifetime your father will realize more and more how important you are as a daughter.
In sisterhood,
Tam
