Raising Daughters | Part 5

The Gift of Time

One of the things that is imperative to raising daughters is time. While this is true for all kids, daughters really need the one on one time to communicate. Look for ways to give your daughter your focused attention in the busyness of life. This is especially important for dads. It is easy for a dad to give time to his sons because they probably share similar interests. Fathers and sons may spend time talking and bonding while playing catch, fishing or other similar activities. While a daughter may participate and enjoy these things, she may benefit from a father/mother daughter date night. Look for ways to give your daughter time to communicate. This is especially important as she gets older. During the teenage years you want to be the one she comes to talk, not just her peers. Make sure to put quality time for your kids on your calendar.
