Fathers rules for dating daughter
“I envision the stereotype of the very protective papa really is rooted in a sincere protective inclination that any good father SHOULD seem toward their daughters, ” he writes in an email.
Unlike my friend, a dad of teenage daughters needs to think about their daughter’s dating in advance.
They demean girls and imply that “my daughter” can’t take care of or think for herself.
And in a completely creepy way, the make fathers their daughters’ “first love.” Not in a warm, fuzzy my-parents-are-the-first-people-I-ever-loved family kind of way, but in a way that implies that a boy’s love will take the place of a father’s love.
They assume that boys are out to get girls: to hurt girls emotionally or take advantage of them physically.

Some day soon, hanging out with her old man won’t be the bees knees anymore. As much as it pains me, I have had to disable the comment feature.
Today she’s crawling around the house in diapers, tomorrow you’re handing her the keys to the car, and before you know it, you’re walking her down the aisle. **9/15/11**This post has resonated so well with daughters and fathers, mothers and grandfathers, and has received many beautiful and heartfelt comments.
