I had a girlfriend that was raised by her dad, my god she was COOL. All of my friends liked her because she could totally hang with the guys and just be almost one of us. She was very feminine but just got men. We're still friends today and what I have noticed, and it may not be an accurate assessment as it may just be her personality, she was very confident with herself and did indeed think like a guy more and I'm sure that it was due to her father being her only parent and role model.
how close the daughter was to her father, if he actually took care of her or just had other people do it for him and if the dad had more masculine or feminine qualities.
then yes. it's possible. I had a lot of men in my family and I think growing up around them has made me understand men better.
yes. I do
I'm not sure if my girls understand men better than most, but I clearly learned a lot about women from my kids!
Very interesting question and responses as well. It can go both ways. We do need more positive male role models in the world. There is definitely a crisis of fatherless children in the world today.
If anyone would like to give Dad a pat on the back send us the positive story of how and what he did for you.
Stories can be sent to info at youdaman.ca.
We believe if we promote the good things men do then the ones who walk away will wake up to their role as a father in a positive way. The children of the world need good role models not the ones who walk away. The deserve it and did not ask to be left alone.
Yes I agree, they play a huge role in the development of their children!
I will send him a thank you and a t shirt so he can wear it proudly.I look forward to seeing and reading the story.
We would love to hear about how your dad raised you in a positive manner. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Totally depends on the dad. The only single dads I've known didn't actually spend a lot of time with their kids, because they worked and then spent time with friends on weekends or dated. The single dads I know of usually drop their kids off with their moms (meaning the kids' grandmother). I do admit, however, that I have known very few of them, and they are mostly those who are widowers....most of them don't seem to stay single.
I would think that a girl raised by a single dad might understand men in a certain way that two parent children might not. But again, just what she finds out about them totally depends on the man and how he handles (or doesn't handle) parenthood.
