Were you Daddys Little Girl or Mommas Boy, is your child the same way, did you take advantage of it?
If you were either do you think you took advantage of it running to daddy to ask for something you knew mom would say no too, and vice versa, (hey, we were kids it worked)? Do your kids try to do the same thing and what do you do when they try?
I was a papa's girl in my younger days but I can’t say that I am not anymore. Though for 19 years being far away from his roof (I now live in Canada), I still feel that being a papa’s girl has never changed. Taking advantage of the close loving attention from my pa had never been an accomplishment. I’m the eldest and had absorbed ALL of the restrictions than the youngest of the brood of four, my sister, who had experienced freedom while growing up. Our pa’s stiff upbringing and humble stories of his childhood has molded us to be better children under his discipline. But I feel that I am closer to him in many ways that benefit me than my ma’s own discipline style. I can ask my pa anything without taking advantage of him because he has a soft, kind and generous heart and that’s the way he is. My ma is of Chinese descent and is tight in regards to money value and is stronger. “You must earn it.” she would say.
I feel that my experience is mirrored in one of my girls. If one of them feels more attached to me, then she’s definitely a mama’s girl. One of them could take advantage of me but that doesn't prove one to become a mommy's girl. ~coffeegginmyrice
I was daddy's little girl and yes I sometimes did take advantage of it but, only because my dad would let me. As for my girls no they are not mommy's girls I mean they are my girls because daddy isn't around but one is my moms' girl and the other is my brat but, no they can't get one over on me unless I let them.
