It is important for every father to be the first love of his daughter; show her love, teach her how a lady ought to be treated by treating her as such. Let her know what true love is; true love is not based on sex.
It is important to know that if you don’t teach your daughters the true value of love, someone else would and you won’t like the outcome.
8 WAYS YOU CAN BECOME YOUR DAUGHTER’S FIRST LOVE?
- Love her mother and treat her with respect. Children learn through observance. You cannot shower her with love and treat the mother like rag. It will end up affecting her negatively.
- Never ever verbally abuse your wife in the presence or absence of your children. Talk to her with love and respect.
- Never ever physically abuse your wife.
- Communicate with your daughter. Get to know her; let her be your friend; be her confidant in everything she does. My husband seem to know all our daughters friends, their names and names of their parents. They always discuss after school events. When you hear him talking to our girls, it’s like him chatting with a colleague or friend. It’s so lovely. They joke and tease each other and yet the respect is strong.
- Treat your daughter with respect. Mind your words when she upsets you. Let her know what she did was not right and you are not happy and get her to say sorry. Always endeavour to respect her; her views and opinions.
- Buy her gifts. Don’t buy your daughter a gift only on her birthday. Buy her flowers, toys, sweets, body splashes, etc very often.
- Take her out sometimes to shop for herself. Let your daughter spend your money. Teach her that men take care of women and not vice versa. Take her out to dinner and treat her like a lady. Spend quality times with your daughter. Play her favourite games with her and at times watch her favorite cartoons with her.
- Tell her you love her. What makes a lady feel loved is an outpour of love. Tell your little girl you love her and when she dresses, compliment her beauty and dress.
To this end, one must understand that children learn a lot through observance and what their brain captures is never forgotten. Your little girl will soon be a lady, be her yardstick for the ideal husband.
