Better Relationship: Moms & Sons–Dads & Daughters
I can remember when I was growing up, my daddy hugging me and telling me how beautiful I was, and how lucky some man was going to be one day to call me his wife. I knew those hugs made me feel loved and safe, and every girl loves hearing that she’s pretty. But I didn’t realize back then how his affection and affirmation filled up a need that all girls have, and made me far less vulnerable to the pressures and pitfalls of teen dating.
There’s something unique that goes on between parents and their children of the opposite gender—something that the father-son or mother-daughter dynamic doesn’t always provide.
