Good Father Of A Daughter; Are You A Good Man Too?

Posted: May 14, 2016

When a man becomes the father of a daughter, he is often a completely different person from what he was to women before!

To the men who worry about how many boys will hit on their daughter, when was the last time your gaze shifted below a girls eyes?

To the men who want to raise strong girls, how many of you have broken a girl?

To the men who call their daughters princesses and angels, how many of you have labelled a girl a ‘slut’?

To the men who promise the world for their daughters, how many of you have gone back on your word?

To the men who teach their daughters to love unconditionally, how many times have you taken a girl’s love for granted?

To the men who tell their daughter to keep her heart safe, how many of you have broken a girl’s heart and never gone back to apologize?

To the men who aspire to raise resilient daughters, how many times have you taken advantage of a girl’s vulnerability?

To the men who take pride in policing their daughter’s date, how many of you have gone on a date to just ‘score’?

To the men who hold a crying daughter and tell her “He didn’t deserve you”, how many of you have led a girl on?

To the men who tell their daughters “I know how other guys think”, how many of you have been the ‘other guy’?

To the men who think that their daughters deserve only the truth, how many lies have you told?

To the men who never want their daughters to cry, how many of you have pushed a girl to tears?

To the men who worry incessantly about their daughter with big eyes and bigger dreams, have you ever cheated a girl who looked at you like that?

To the men who want to raise daughters made of resilience and rainbows, I send my love and a word of caution.

Your job is not just inside the house. It is mostly outside the house.

Good fathers are around. Good men, not too many!
