I certainly agree with Chasuk when he says, "Spend time with them, even when you don't have the time to spend." However there are some things I disagree with. I don't think I could ever lie to my daughter by telling her she is beautiful. To me she is perfect and beautiful, I don't think anything could change that. I fell in love with her the minute that I saw her, is she beautiful? To me absolutely, but truth be told perhaps that is just my perception of her, and I don't see my perception being any different regardless of whether or not my children have features that other would find beautiful or not. I think the best way to be a good father is to protect her from anything that would do her harm. Be willing to sacrifice anything for her, and give her to the tools and experiences she will need to be successful in life.
In all honesty I am terrified of what the future of raising a daughter will bring. However I will do whatever I can to ensure that my children to have every advantage that I did not have.
To me fathering a daughter has been an adventure and I am only 8 months in. There isn't anything I wouldn't sacrifice for her, and I think that is the key to raising a daughter. To be willing to sacrifice everything to make sure she has every advantage possible.
