Fathers Have More Influence in a Daughter's Life Than Mothers, Studies Show

A woman is able to bring up a kid, especially a daughter on her own way. But, many studies have shown that daughters could benefit from having their father around. Studies say it could help improve their emotional health.

Daughters that have good relationships with their dads have a lower risk of developing depression and anxiety.


Daughters that grow up with their dads have a lower risk of developing depression and anxiety as per the journal of family psychology. Also, they were better at managing stress and expressing their emotions. They were able to talk about their feeling and that could help them to have a better relationship with other people.

Furthermore, fathers can also help shape things like: sexuality, relationships, self-image, and personal values, for their daughters. Once they build healthy relationships with their daughters, they can help them establish feelings of control over their lives and positive self-image, which can boost their confidence and lead to success. So the father-daughter bond is so much important to everyone’s lives.

Dads meet the needs of their daughters.

The earlier dads meet the needs of their daughters, the healthier their relationship is. In fact, earlier involvement of dads is something new, in particular when we consider those seventy-five years ago, they could not be in the room when their little girls were born but now it’s not like that.

Today’s dads have got more opportunities to be involved with their little girls from their birth. Dads can feed their daughters by using formula or extracting breast milk. They can also change diapers or rock their daughters to sleep.

Even though the role of a father is significant in the life of his daughter, it does not devalue the role of a mother that has raising her daughter.

Even though the role of a father is significant in the life of his daughter, it does not diminish the role that a mother has when raising her daughter because grow up without a mother could make her life a mess. Mothers are able to provide valuable advice and information about interest in boys, puberty, and menstrual cycle. Fathers may be unable to talk directly about that stuff with daughters.

Fathers can have a great impact on the physical health of their daughters.

Fathers can have a great impact on the physical health of their daughters, as well. Namely, a study carried out by Rutgers suggested that daughters who had a better relationship with their dad were in better physical health compared to girls that had not.

There is still hope for the dads who have not been involved in a better relationship with their daughters since it is not too late to build up a healthy and a strong relationship with their little girls.
