Father-Daughter Relationship

“A dad is a daughter’s first love and he, by virtue of his exalted paternal stature, remains most influential in shaping how the daughter expects to be treated by men later on in her life. I am afraid good fathers indeed set the bar high.”

-The Little Mermaid, MMXVI

    1. Hi Oscar, you have raised a pertinent point which I attribute due to the startling deterioration of moral values in our society. This is not only in the USA but rather it concerns the whole of humanity.

      According to Hinduism, we are presently living in an era known as the ‘Kali Yuga’, adumbratively marked by widespread decadence, sin, corruption, gluttony and lust. In this age of darkness and ignorance, people slide further down the track of dishonesty, with virtue being of little value. Unrestrained sexual indulgences increase. Knowledge is lost. Food and water become scarce, as do family bonds-which is what is happening everyday in all countries of the world.

      Such is the tragic state we are in and the only thing we can do is to try to keep our head above water by meditation to purify our soul, by seeking the truth and by following the path to light.

      I wish you enjoy an amazing Sunday. Bon weekend!

      Love and hugs X

      1. Thanks for the perspective. Hinduism is a way of thought and belief that I am least familiar with. I agree that we can most account for our own behavior and attitudes.

    1. Just like it takes both a man and a woman to create the physique of a child, it takes the same man and woman to build up their child’s emotional and mental constitution. Good parents don’t just happen. They are made.

  3. But there comes a time when daughters and sons realise their fathers and mothers are just flawed ordinary human beings and sometimes as their parents grow old they have to care for them which introduces old age in reality.

  4. Both my beautiful daughters saved a dance for me at their weddings…..to the song “Daddy’s Little Girl”. The men they married are the most important men in their lives now, as it should be…..but in my heart, they’ll always be my little girls.
    Thanks for the post and the sweet picture.

  5. How timely that I am just now seeing this post of yours; so beautiful! I have been behind in the WordPress World!
    But I was just thinking so fondly of my father today…as I actually had a dream , or a vision maybe? in which he spoke to me.
    I ‘ve never experienced anything like that before, and seldom even recall dreams.. But I have been missing him more lately, even though he passed away 4 years ago. Just that comforting presence that assures you “all will be well” that fathers have. And in fact, now that I think of it, that’s what he did in my dream—He simply appeared –kind of walked up out of nowhere (there was no plot), and I said, “DAD! What are you doing here?!” Thinking to myself in the dream..”How can you be here?!” And he just walked over, smiled and said,
    “I just came to give you a hug.” And he did. Then he was gone again, just like that.
    But it’s wonderful to think on it –and feel his presence. Remembering good things is a gift, and it helps us treasure the moment we are living in even more.

  6. Very strong line, that last sentence. “Good fathers set the bar too high”. I had a nice relationship with my father (I’m male), even though my mother did not. It’s a pity that so many children are growing up fatherless.

    1. Indeed, Yure. It seems fatherless children are increasingly common. My own farther died when I was two, and I was the only kid in my class without one. But today? Today, so many!

      1. My dad divorced from mom when I was nine. I still see him, tho, and we still love each other a lot. There’s a decline in marriage and an increasing divorce rate. While I understand the reasons, I worry about the children. I think it could be compensated if single fathers adopted children. If you are on your own, it can’t be so hard. So many children are in need of a parent, why not a single father?

  7. Little Mermaid, how you spin the contiguity narrative that’s of us (my beautiful daughter and me). Till the age of 10 and 11, she must seek my laps to commence her goodnight sleep.

    I’ve taught her many things. Once (about 5 years ago) she confided an inner thought in me and asked me whether I’ll tell anybody; and guess what I got for the reply when I told her, “Not even your mother”? A warm embrace, that definitely intoned, “That’s my Dad!”
