In a family to cultivate a strong ethical and emotional culture, the shared bond between a father and children needs to have the proper development throughout the various stages in life. Especially, fathers leave huge impact on emotional development of their daughters and it turns out that fathers who are emotionally invested and present in the lives of their daughters are successfully being able to nurture the family dynamics and emotional development of their kids.
Significantly, there are phases of life where a tight bond between a father and a daughter is going to develop a very positive self-image. We have tried to put light on the aspects where fathers have huge impact on the lives of their daughters.
1. A father’s emotional availability is going to bring sense of values and principles in his daughter’s life.
A healthy and open relationship with the fathers helps daughters to be more comfortable with being open and honest about their feelings. Later on, the positive emotional development enables them to be ready for having close and intimate relationships in life.
If not necessarily the romantic ones but strong emotional bond with a father can boost self-confidence and self-assuredness in women.
A healthy family dynamic between the two of them and a father’s emotional availability is going to bring sense of values and principles in his daughter’s life.
2. Practical significances are evident with a father’s presence in his daughter’s life.
Healthy emotional development by fathers being more involved in their daughters’ life can also play very significant roles on a practical level. Things perceived to make women successful in the future depend on the way their fathers have been involved till they have started their careers. Presence of a father in a daughter’s life gives her comfort and confidence of being financially stable and explore opportunities to have a sound financial strength in contrast to the lives of daughters who grow up without having a father figure.
3. Fathers must be involved right from the start.
A couple of decades back, only mothers used to be seen as the primary homemaker but now both moms and dads are required to share equal roles and responsibilities when it comes to raising their children. Dads have huge impact on their daughter’s lives who have been present at the earliest stages as opposed to dads who only show up later on in life. It’s not the mother’s responsibility only to do planning and development of the family, both father and mother have to be involved equally to establish intimate relationships with the children.
4. Media can also have huge impact to disseminate information to masses.
One thing that media can be really helpful to reach out to masses is to encourage parents especially fathers to be more emotionally engaged in their daughters’ life. Irony is also seen in this era when the media is also used to perpetuate primitive ideas of parenting where dads shouldn’t be so hands-on with raising their children. More information should be passed on to promote the ideas where dads should always be encouraged to play more vital roles in cultivating a healthy family dynamic.
5. A team effort also have huge impact on healthy family dynamic and emotional development.
While, a father’s presence in a daughter’s life is stressed upon in this article but another aspect that is vital to accept in the children’s life is the team effort of both mother and father. Active roles of moms and dads in a family help them to raise children who are emotionally strong and practice good ethics.
