WSP 53: Dads and Daughters: Helping Them Bond

Lucky little girls are daddy’s darling, but when the teen years hit, that special relationship can take a hit, sometimes throwing the whole family off balance. Not only does the resulting dynamic have a definitive impact on a young woman’s sense of esteem and behavior in the present, but a father can also leave an indelible imprint on his daughter’s future including her self-worth, career success, earning potential, and relationships with men going forward: even for the rest of her life.

In this episode, multi-award-winning author and global marriage educator, Ramona Zabriskie, and her husband of 40+ years, Dale, answer a wife who can sense how important the father-daughter bond is, especially for her teen girls, and wonders (in the face of a lot of conflicts at home) what she can do as a wife and a mother to help her husband and girls tone it down and better connect.

THROW ME A WIFESAVER: “My husband and teen daughters are constantly at odds, and I’m constantly in the middle. What can I do to get him to understand their feelings, and get them to show him more respect? Help. This is wearing me out.”
