Fathers, you may not realise it, but you matter more to your daughter yhan any other man. Why? because this is so important to her future. And how do you as a father take this crucial responsibility?

Some time ago my adult daughter wrote asking me to play what she called the "Dad Card." If you knew my free-spirited daughter, you would understand that this is not a common occurrence. She has grown up to be a confident young woman quite capable of managing her own life, no matter where she happens to be.

Later she confided that her confidence draws from the fact that she has the "Dad Card" up her sleeve that can be played in the unlikely event she might need it. John Miller

The "DAD CARD" Defined

The "Dad Card" symbolizes the strong relationship that should exist between every father and the daughter. A relationship that endows her with the sure knowledge that she can invoke her father's name and intrinsic authority to seek protection, comfort or security in time of threat or need.

It's a relationship that must be built over time; it's a relationship that will be tested during the stormy teenage years. Its strength is critical to her development and maturity because studies repeatedly show that "YOU" as a father matter more to your daughter than any other man.

How much importance do parents attach to parent-child relationship? How much is it valued? I think fathers shoul think deeply about this.

The prophet Malachi highlighted the importance of the father-child relationship in our time by prophesying that the "hearts of the fathers" must be turned "to the children" and the "hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:6).

No loving father can look into the crib of his newborn daughter or gaze into her eyes in the years to come without feeling a sense of pride that awakens protective instincts deep within him.It can also arouse serious feelings of inadequacy at the daunting task at hand. Still, Dr. Meeker claims, and the Bible confirms, that it is a task that can be mastered-imperfectly prehaps but, even so, not without great positive influence.


1. You are the most important person in her life.

2. You are her hero and role model.

3. You are her first love.

4. Teach her Humility.

5. Protect her and defend her.

6. Be the kind of man you want her to marry.

7. Teach her to fight for what is right.

8. Teach her to know who God is.

9. Teach and show her pragmatism and grit.

10. Keep her connected.

Play your dad card very well !!! Your daughter will be proud of you !!! ...

To Be A Father Is More Than Being Just A Man. It Means Taking Up A Responsibility. It is Not A Time To Become A Ruler or A Dictator. "IT IS ALL ABOUT YOUR FAMILY."
