The importance of a father
Everywhere we always talk about mother’s and that children need them. It is true but we never talk about how they also need their father! I am so lucky that my daughter’s father is someone who can give her his full attention when he plays with her. He is amazing and fills her up with confidence and teaches her things about planets, nature etc. She seems to absorb his words so much more than mine.
Since I am a stay-at-home-mom she spend more time with me. My husband works in hospitality and often comes back home late. He is never here for supper except for his days off. So I guess since she sees less of him everything he says has double importance for her. She absolutely adores her father and she is his little princess. I think being a princess in their father’s eyes is something that every little girl needs.
My father loved me as a child but never showed it that way, I never felt like a princess. I have never been told that I was “pretty” by him and I am just happy that my daughter gets all of that from hubby. I want her to know that she is beautiful inside and out and she will because of me but mainly because of her wonderful daddy.
Fathers also have a different approach with children than Moms. I tend to over-protect and see disasters in my head in order to prevent them from happening. Husband worry less and let daughter take some risk and experiment a little more. The difference I think is very healthy for children. Happy fathers day to all fathers and to end my post here is something that daughter(4 1/2 years old) said to her friend about her father. She didn’t now we were listening and it made us laugh
When I will be 15, I won’t be able to jump on Daddy anymore because I’ll be 16.
