Fathers are a sense of security to a family. Girls on the other hand view their fathers as the most trusted male person in their lives. Loving and caring. Studies show that within the first 12 years of their lives, girls get 90% of their self-esteem from the relationship with their dad. It is strongly encouraged that fathers maintain this perspective in order for their daughters to have a balance in life.
Men and women are structured differently. A girl has all the traits of her mother in her own dimension. She wants to be loved, appreciated and complimented. She needs attention from the opposite sex and will get to an age of seeking after it if she does not receive it. A father being the first male the girl trusts can divert the energy of attention seeking in girls by playing a "safe male role." Within this role, the father will be doing a few of the things expected of a male gender to a female gender, yet in a conscious state of mind of a father to a daughter relationship.
