The Gift of Fathers

Updated on March 18, 2015

Your skirt is too short.

No it's not.

Change into something else.

I could write forever on this topic but having a father that cares for you and your presentation to others is so beautiful. When I was young I didn't understand because I thought he was being old fashioned. Now when I encounter women wearing a pasty and panties to party, I get it. He was saying baby-girl you are precious and I want you to believe and present yourself as such. Your outside presentation representing the values, morals, and person that you were raised to be ....a young lady.

If every little girl had a father who was able to plant that seed of love, self-respect, and the right to only allow a man into your life that respects you. Perhaps if there were more fathers to teach their daughters as displayed in this video there would be less tolerance for domestic violence, men living off of women, women allowing men to use them purely for sex when that is not what they desire. More women that had enough love for themselves in relationships not to put their needs on the back-burner w/an expectation that a man should cherish them. Just a thought.

Thank you to all you wonderful fathers that treasure your daughters.

The Huffington Post Article wrote about the show featuring Oprah and Iyanla Vanzant:

Women who grow up without fathers often struggle with feelings of low self-esteem and unworthiness. Iyanla Vanzant calls these women "daddyless daughters" and, in a special two-part show for "Oprah's Lifeclass," Iyanla helps examine what really happens when girls are raised without their fathers.


For those of you with dating delima's do you recognize your value and worth in who you are as a person? Are you settling for anyone or anything in a relationship? Do you recognize the broken relationships your friends have when it comes to men?
