Promise Fulfilled

Daddy, Will You…

Not long ago I received a list from my 12-year old daughter. It was a list of things she wanted to do with me. It was a list of things that she wanted to do with her daddy, when he could make the time.

Well, today I got to check off one of the things on her list – shooting.

Daddy Needs To…

One of the big problems of today’s society is a lack of father participation. Oh, many men (I use that term loosely) are more than happy to make babies and play house, but few are willing to make lifelong commitments, especially to being there for their daughters.

Men, your daughters need you. They need you to love them, to hug them, to have tea parties, and to go shooting. They need you to be the first men in their lives, and the ones that all others are judged by.

Daddies, don’t make your little girls look for love in the arms of some prepubescent, jobless, video-gamer. Don’t let some condom-packing thug come along and be the first one to tell your daughter she’s a princess. Every girl wants to feel special, so prove to her that she is.

Not a Victim

If you really want to do your daughters a favor, teach them how not to be a victim. You know what boys are like, so be the hero…warn your girls! Teach them that it is OK to say “no” to those hormone factories in hoodies. And for when the Justin Bieber wannabe’s try to make a serious move, teach your girls how to take away their offspring-producing capabilities.

And…where possible…teach them how to use a weapon. You can’t protect them forever.

  1. Anthony, You are a good Dad. I must say you are right many men want to play house but when the real work begins they are out the door. I have now moved on to the grandfather stage of my life, I love it. One of the most enjoyable things I like to do is take my granddaughters on dates. I want them to know how a man (boy) is suppose to treat them. I go to their home to pick them up. I go to the door to get them walk them to the car open doors. I want them to know if a boy does not treat you better than your grandfather he is not worth going out with. Beware young boys if want to date my granddaughters?You better be better than me if you mess up you find my little girls waving good-bye from their driveway.
