Dads against daughters dating com

Last week I took my daughter for a swimming lesson for the first time in 12 months.We're planning a seaside summer, and I thought it wise to re-acquaint her with the concept of swimming.As a new-ish parent and egalitarian feminist, I prefer to think that family dynamics are an equal-opportunities game.But half a year and one son later, I fear I was too quick to dismiss my husband’s old-fashioned stereotyping of parent-child relationships.For girls and women, there is, apparently, just something about Daddy.

When I tried to borrow my husband’s spoon, she wrinkled her nose at me, grabbed my spoon and handed it back, smiling, to her father.You can be as close to you daughter as humanly possible, but as she grows there is still going to be certain conversations and questions that she would rather have with a women.You can turn to both family and friends to seek help; perhaps utilizing the wisdom of your own mother, or asking your sisters to take a special interest.What worries me as a mother is that, while the mother-son relationship is so often tinged with negative connotations (mummy’s boy, doormat to her son), the father-daughter bond is celebrated as one of life’s great joys, and I’d like a piece of that, as a parent.Perhaps now that women are no longer tied exclusively to home life, and are recognised for their professional as well as domestic achievements, the mother-son dynamic will take on a less slave-like, more positive tone.
