  • I take the kids, from my wifes former relationship, to school, gym and play basketball with her, talk at the dinner table and listen to her challenges in life.. which are frequent and many. In general, I try to train her to be confident, challenge her emotional and physical development and provide new opportunities for her to learn. She will snuggle with mom while I'm in bed, but that's their thing... but I think provides security.

    My father wasn't all that affectionate with any of us kids but we knew he cared. some fathers I've seen are affectionate.. snuggle with the daughter, tease a bit, tuck into bed. Depends on the father and his "heart".

    Fathers are really important to developing the self image, confidence, self worth of the daughter. In absence, have to re-parent yourself and build that healthy.

  • "Without the sexual stuff attached".

    Are you aware that some consider a father hugging his daughter to be indicative of a pedophile? Western society has become so comfortable attacking father's that it's a wonder any father goes near his daughter. My ex thinks that a father should not ever hug/touch his daughter "once she begins to develop breasts".

    Not only have women destroyed dating/marriage, but they have also seriously damaged the core father/daughter relationship.

    • Wth? I still give my dad hugs.

    • @TrueConfection I agree it's fine for a father to hug his daughter, but MANY women do not think it's ok and will call father's out for hugging their daughters.

    • It's a power trip and a vicious one at that.

  • I would hug my daughter and she knew that I would protect her.

  • I play with my kids, draw, make art, play outside. Sleep on my chest during nap time. Brade her hair. Hike. Hug when she wants one. Pick her up and carry her on my neck or side saddle hold her. I'm just being a normal loving father that makes my kids feel like they are safe.

  • I give them side hugs, kiss the tops of their heads, squeeze their feet as a long distance hug.
    Lots of pats or caresses on the shoulder and "I love you kiddo"

  • Well I never been a dad but if I had a daughter she beca princess in my eyes and be daddy's little girl. I give them piggy back rides and put them on my shoulders. Play catch with them if they like sports or tea party if they are into roleplaying or imaginative. I might be overprotective at times when she starts dating but trust her choices. Maybe take her to a daddy daughter dance. I would do everything I can to make her happy and feel safe
