Defining The Real Superhero
We all know that father is a sonís first hero but did you know that a father is a daughterís first love and hero. He may not be a super hero but he is super. Your dad may not be superman but he is a super man. However, I think that one could argue the case letís compare.
Dads can do anything Ė Superman can do anything
With the help of the internet and how to books dadís can really do anything. You can fix anything and to neighborhood kids your dad can be known as the Mr. Fix it! By making good attempts to fix and repair you show her that she can also do anything. In the case of superman he can do anything.
Dads always there when you need him Ė Superman is too
As a dad I know that there will be times when they canít physically be there but they can be there in thought. There will be times when your daughter will question her character Ė and you wonít be there to direct her decision. However, the only way you can influence her decisions is to be there for her now.
The one thing that cannot be agued is that youíve never seen your dad and superman in the same room. Hmmm!
To all the men that are dad figures when needed. To all of the men that make good attempts to be a dad but just didnít know how, but hung in there anyway. To the dadís thatís there when your daughter needs you the most. And finally, to all the momís that are both the mother and the father because you have too. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being a great parent.
What heroic actions are you taking to be your daughterís super-parent? What would your superhero name be and what is the one super power you would possess?
A note to remember: girls will draw a conclusion about what men are like by the men in her life. Her years of growing will include how the men in her life will treat her or her mother. So, how does this all come together? A daughter needs to be the best she can be Ė you are a big part of this process.
Your interaction in her growing years will reflect how she interacts and responds to the male gender in general. A teacher, a classmate, a coach, a boyfriend, a husband etcÖ Help change the world by helping her. She will be able to succeed one day because you helped her get there. Inspire the superhero in her because of who you are.
Live, Laugh and Love
