    Tips For Good Father Daughter Relationship

    Here are some tips to maintain a healthy father-daughter relationship
    • The first rule is to be a friend: Treat her as your friend; share thoughts, ask for opinions.
    • Treat your daughter as an equal: Do not keep this attitude that she knows nothing. Children these days have become more sensible and know what they are doing.
    • Be a mediator: If your daughter is facing problems with your wife, be there present as a mediator between the two females. Having a male interween somehow cool down issues.
    • Learn to communicate: If you are one of those who cannot really communicate or emote well, then you should maybe should start by doing small things like helping her around with her studies or maybe once in a while give her a treat or take her shopping.
    • rust her: When their daughter's are in their teens, father's usually tend to get over protectiev about their little girls. This behaviour most often than not tends to push the girls away from their father's. Remember not to be too suspicious about your daughter's whereabouts.
    • Let them be independent: They are no longer babies. Let her learn from her own mistakes. Having a healthy discussion about such mistakes will make them feel that you are interested in their lives and do not want them to do what you want. Avoid preaching.
    • Love them unconditionally: She is your own daughter. Love her unconditionally even if she makes mistakes or she is not the ideal daughter. Your love for her will make her realise herself to make the right choices in life.
    • Accept her friends: Accepting your daughter's social circle can be a little difficult sometimes. The kind of friends she is hanging out with might come as a surprise to most father's.
    • Be patient: Hormones are running wild and so will tempers. You need to curb your temper since she will always be the one who'll be raising her voice. When she sees that you do not react usually, she will herself calm down in front of you.
    • Spend time together: Time is the greatest bonding element. Try doing what they like the most and see the difference. They will love the way you are.

    1. No matter what you call your father — dad, papa, pop and so on — today is a chance for you to celebrate your father and recognise just what he is and what he has done for you. Father’s Day is your one chance in the year to give your father a pat on the back for who he is and what he has done for you.

      I believe Father’s Day is also an opportunity to review just what being a father means to you and how you can become a better father to your children.

      I imagine there is so much time, frustration, stress and sacrifice involved in being a parent. Occasions such as Father’s Day allow us to reflect on just how worthwhile it all was. If I had appreciated the efforts of my parents when I was younger, I would probably have been a lot nicer to them and more appreciative of their hard work. Maybe they should have classes in how to be nice to your parents!

      I do not have children of my own, but have been blessed with a number of nephews, nieces, young cousins and any number of young people in our extended family. I still recall my great joy the first time I received a Father’s Day card from my nephew.

      Also the children of many friends have found a second home at my place. I even have a special toy box for those times when I have young visitors. There was a time when children visiting us would rush straight upstairs and bring down the toy box, promptly emptying the contents on the lounge floor with a great relish.

      Though I sometimes wonder what it would be like to have children of my own, I do feel that I have had the best of both worlds. I do also wonder just what sort of a father I would have been. A good one I hope, taking the best of the lessons from my father and also from my mother, and combining these with all my own observations and learnings from the last few years of personal growth and exploration.
