8 Practical Tips for Dads to Grow Strong Relationships With Their Daughters

8 Practical Tips for Dads to Grow Strong Relationships With Their Daughters | Focused leadership | Scoop.it
“ I do not consider myself a parenting expert by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, I generally tend to harbor a mild suspicion about people who are labeled as “parenting experts,” because I firmly believe that parenting is more than just a set of technical skills that one can be an “expert” about. Instead I believe that authentic parenting is a vocation and a self-sacrificial act of love for another human person (your child) that gradually unfolds over many, many years. ” “ I also firmly believe that 99% of parenting is “on-the-job training,” and because every child is unique there is no set of magical one-size-fits-all skills that can be applied to every child in exactly the same way—we’re talking about a human relationship here, not a sales pitch or a D.I.Y. furniture assembly. ” “ Having said that, here are eight practical tips that I think the dads out there might find useful for helping to build and maintain strong relationships with their daughters: 1. Start young and keep going ” This one is pretty self-explanatory; don’t wait to get involved in your daughter’s life, start the interaction when they are young and then keep at it as the years roll on. Obviously these interactions will change and develop as your daughter grows older, but waiting for a ‘right’ age to start building father/daughter bonds is a surefire path to a future where you end up looking back with regrets about lost time. . . .

Q:  Why does human nature matter in business?

 

Janet: Business is best when the people providing goods and services feel passion and commitment to what they are producing and their customers feel they’ve received value.  The operative word here is “feel.”  When we use the term “rational” in business, we usually mean dispassionately data driven and informed by explicit measureable criteria.
