Dads and daughters share a special bond. From the first time you change a diaper to watching your teen graduate from high school, from teaching your daughter how to ride a bike to helping her do her taxes, there are many moments fathers and daughters share over the years that are irreplaceable.

They begin the day you bring her home from the hospital, as you find ways to help out mom with your new baby girl. Moments that you bond over together that are yours and yours alone.

Here are 5 ways that dads relate to their daughters.

 

1. You Share Your Passions

Dads, we know you love to share your passions with your daughters. When you come together over common interests it provides a lifetime of opportunities to make special memories.

Each father/daughter duo’s passions are different, and that is what makes your relationship so beautiful. Maybe you’re a basketball fan and teach your daughter how to shoot free-throws and watch your favorite team on TV together, never missing a game.

Or, maybe your passion is reading and you swap favorite books back and forth. Still, maybe it’s hiking, watching horror movies, or making pizza together from scratch. No matter what your shared passions are, you’ll always have something to talk about over the dinner table.

2. You Share Your Smiles

Holidays, birthdays, and feel-good moments, dads share endless smiles with their daughters. These are the heartfelt, warming memories of moments that seem so small yet matter so much.

Dads also lift their daughters up when life gets tough. You’re there through the tears, the breakups, when your daughter doesn’t land that job she wanted, and every other part of life that’s less than perfect. But you’re always there with a shoulder to lean on and a joke to bring a smile right back to your daughter’s face.

That’s what you’re there for, to make the unbearable a little easier and the dark days a little brighter.

3. You Share Your Giggles

Dads, you’re also always there to give a good laugh. Whether you crack a cheesy joke, engage your toddler in a tickle fight, or simply act goofy for the sake of getting a giggle, there’s no better feeling than making your daughter laugh.

And trust me, even during those tough teen years when you’re bound to get an eye roll and a “Daaaadddd” your daughter still loves it. After all, your jokes are what make you, you. Your daughter will tell stories of your jokes and silly get-ups for years. You may even find that at a family gathering years in the future, when she’s all grown up, that she will ask you to re-tell her favorites and reminisce on all those acts that made her teenage self roll her eyes.

4. You Share Your Knowledge

Dads, you’re a wealth of knowledge. Even if you’re not a rocket scientist, we know that you have endless facts to share. And you do share them with your daughter. She’s bound to repeat her favorites and tell her friends “My dad said…”

Other times the knowledge you have to share is GR8 life advice. You teach your daughter right from wrong, you teach her how to budget and save her money, and you always remind her that her car needs an oil change.

From the moment your daughter is born you begin teaching her new things that she will carry with her throughout her life. Whether its how to say “Dada” or how to complete that challenging calculus problem on her homework, you’re always there and ready to help. That’s what dads are for. And throughout the years you’re going to learn a lot from your growing child, too.

5. You Treasure Each Moment

There are countless moments throughout fatherhood that you will never forget, even if your daughter does. You will have stories to share with her throughout her entire life of moments that happened when she was young. Because you’re her father and you remember even the tiniest things–they meant something to you.

You also treasure the big moments and celebrate together. The day she gets her driver’s license, the day she gets her first college acceptance letter, and her first huge professional success. All of these moments, big and small, are equally special to you. They are yours to treasure forever.

A Thank You to All Dads

Dads, we thank you for everything you do. From the biggest favors to the smallest gestures, all of the daughters out there couldn’t do it without you. Remember, your daughter has just one father and there is nothing that can replace the special times you share together.

To all dads everywhere, GR8NESS wants to let you know that we appreciate you. And we know that your daughter does too.
