Today’s culture does not seem to lack creative ways of objectifying young women.
Want to know how your daughter can succeed in this culture? It’s simple, become a good spouse to your mate.
Dad’s, have you hugged your little girl today? Have you hugged your teenage girl?
You know, no matter what age your daughter is, there’s a natural yearning in every female to want the approval and adoration of her Daddy.
If things are right, Dad you’re the first male to ever kiss your daughter—to hug her, and squeeze her, and tell her how much you love her. It’s nearly impossible to give her too much affection. And she’ll never be too old for it.
The more you appropriately hug and kiss your daughter, the less likely she’ll crave inappropriate affection from another source.
Become a Good Spouse
It’s not good enough to simply provide affection towards your daughter. Dad must also set a practical example of how to properly treat a woman. There is no better way to display this than to become a good spouse to your wife.
Many parents fail to connect the dots in this area.
We often think that because loving our spouse isn’t a direct interaction with our kids that it couldn’t possibly be contributing to their success.
But, nothing could be further from the truth.
When your daughter or son sees Dad and Mom serving one another, kissing and hugging one another, and acting in unison in everything, it not only glorifies God; but, it breeds a sense of security and contentment in our kids that spawns trust and respect.
