Three Ways to Cherish Your Daughter



Raising a daughter is such a major responsibility. In some ways, men and women are very similar, however, each person is different and has unique needs. You may have to tailor your parenting approach for each child. With this understanding, it's important to relate to your daughter in a way that honors who she is, and the woman she'll grow to become. You'll want to encourage her in ways that are unique to her gifts, talents and interests. When your daughter feels loved by you, as a parent, you'll give her a foundation of safety and security. From that place, she can really thrive. 

Consider the following ways you can actively cherish your daughter. 

1. Go out on dates. Create your own separate date night with her. Just like you'd have a date night with your spouse, do the same with your daughter. Make it unique. Perhaps you could get her a carnation before you head out.Use this as a time for you two to connect, have fun and make new memories. You can go grab dinner at a local restaurant and go for a walk afterward. You can opt to go roller skating or ice skating. You two might decide you'd like to go to a local bookstore to pick out some reading material. This will give you one on one time and allow you to build a close relationship.

2. Be a source of wisdom and refuge. Whether your daughter is in elementary school or college, there are so many things she faces on a daily basis. There's the pressure of making friends, getting good grades and fitting in. Even though it might seem trivial to some, these are areas of stress for a lot of young people. Knowing this, it's a good idea to be a source of wisdom and encouragement for your daughter. Whether she's had a bad day or is feeling unsure about a new friend, be a source of refuge. She should know that she can be completely vulnerable and open with you.  If you have a close relationship she will feel she can discuss anything with you.


3. Although gifts are not required in parenting, sometimes a special gift just to show you care, makes a child/teen feel loved.  You can give them something like a beautiful charm it bracelet or a special book they have been wanting to read.  It doesn't have to be expensive, but keep it around their interests.
