Dads Take Note: Daughters Share the Things They Wish Their Fathers Knew

Fathers, be good to your daughters

It’s not easy being a parent.

Just when you thought it was a lot of responsibility to take care of yourself and act like an adult, next thing you know, someone special walks into your life (traditionally speaking, at least), and suddenly you’re caring for their health and happiness, too.

Now multiply all that by a million and more when a child comes along. Aside from the fact that you are now responsible for a whole other human being’s life, you may find yourself even more challenged if you end up raising a child of the opposite gender. From stepping outside of your comfort zone to doing things you’d never think you’d do, learning to raise a child might be the biggest lesson of all.

Daughters of Reddit were asked to share all the tips they wish their fathers knew about them while they were still young girls growing up, and their answers are both powerful and insightful.
