In an article by Pediatric Associates of Franklin, they highlighted the importance of a father's presence in his daughter's life. "Young girls depend on their fathers for security and emotional support. A father shows his daughter what a good relationship with a man is like."
"If a father is loving and gentle, his daughter will look for those qualities in men when she’s old enough to begin dating. If a father is strong and valiant, she will relate closely to men of the same character," the blog reads.
Fathers.com meanwhile suggest these activities that dads can do for their daughters to make them feel loved:
Send your daughter some flowers even when there's no occasion
Treat your daughter to lunch, whether she's a toddler or a teen
Write to your daughter, and tell her what you appreciate about her
