The very best thing a dad can do for his daughter is be a good husband. And I'm talking about being a good husband not to just his wife but to his ex-wife, because how a man treats a woman is the way his daughter will expect to be treated. She's watching all the time. She's watching to see if dad runs around on her. She's watching to see if dad is mean to his wife. She's watching to see if he talks bad about her, if he's cruel to her, if he abuses her. And she's learning. She's learning through experience this is the way a woman should be treated. And this such an important lesson for dads to understand is that they are teaching their daughters what to look for in a man. And this is a lesson that you see perpetrated. This is why daughters of child abuse marry men that abuse them. This is what they've learned to expect for in a man. The other thing a dad should do for his daughter is give her a sense of adventure. This is what the importance of a father is. Take her to the baseball games. Take her to the soccer games. Take her to the hockey games. Expand her world. Push her out a little bit. Moms are going to be protective. Dads are the ones that try and push children out of the next. And to impart in his child a sense of adventure is a wonderful thing a father can do. A girl needs a father in her life. She will find a man in her life. And it may not be the man she should find. But she will find a man.
