For a woman, the first man she met in her life and dived into his masculine being is her father.
Daughters are so attached to their fathers at the psychological level. They tend to see their daddy as the only way to escape the mother’s discipline methods. The way he behaves and play with his daughter can teach empathy, healthy risk taking and identifying boundaries.
We need to pinpoint an essential fact here. The way you treat your daughter, beginning from her childhood can affect her career path. Girls, where their fathers are involved in their lives, have more self-confidence, tend to make better choices on the long term and more likely to finish their education. Most importantly, you will be coaching her unconsciously how she will accept to be treated by men. All starts with the little things and time you spend with her.
She will learn from you how to be a good leader. Girls observe their fathers thru the way you treat your wife and other authority figures in your family life and set an example for how leadership works or doesn’t. From this aspect, you can decide to make it easy or difficult for her to have leadership skills.
Encourage her to express herself freely to you, for the reason that she will be expressing her opinion to her boss or peers with confidence even if it’s contradictory.
Always keep in mind; it is easier to mentor a daughter than a son. I can share with you some examples of women who were mentored by their fathers and became successful in their career path like Donald Trump’s heir apparent is daughter Ivanka, Rupert Murdoch’s heir apparent is daughter Elisabeth.
Her life career depends on you!
There is no replacement for you since nobody else will teach her the things you will. The Daddy-Daughter relationship is something that women take with her to the grave.
Fatherhood is looking after her while you are there and while you are away. Secure your family’s future through a life insurance policy.
