I was in tears as I read through this list, as Im sure many grown daughters will be. Mothers bookmark this list of rules and encourage your daughters daddy to read them, memorize them, and put them in to action. And, to all you Dads out there be sure you pay close attention and heed these wise words. About Michael Michael Mitchell is an (almost) thirty-something dad who blogs daily tips and life lessons for dads of daughters at lifetoheryears.com. He spends his days practicing the arts of fatherhood and husbandry, while attempting to be a man of God and a professional raiser of philanthropic funds. On the rare occasion hes not tied up with the aforementioned and other pursuits of awesomeness, he enjoys fighting street gangs for local charities and drinking from a cup thats half full. Bookmark Life To Her Years, follow Michael on Twitter, and like him on Facebook for more rules.

50 Rules for Dads of Daughters {by Michael Mitchell}

Page 2 of 26

1. Love her mom. Treat her mother with respect, honor, and a big heaping spoonful of public displays of affection. When she grows up, the odds are good shell fall in love with and marry someone who treats her much like you treated her mother. Good or bad, thats just the way it is. Id prefer good. 2. Always be there. Quality time doesnt happen without quantity time. Hang out together for no other reason than just to be in each others presence. Be genuinely interested in the things that interest her. She needs her dad to be involved in her life at every stage. Dont just sit idly by while she add years to her add life to her years.

3. Save the day. Shell grow up looking for a hero. It might as well be you. Shell need you to come through for her over and over again throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape and blue tights optional.

4. Savor every moment you have together. Today shes crawling around the house in diapers, tomorrow youre handing her the keys to the car, and before you know it, youre walking her down the aisle. Some day soon, hanging out with her old man wont be the bees knees anymore. Life happens pretty fast. You better cherish it while you can. 5. Pray for her. Regularly. Passionately. Continually.

6. Buy her a glove and teach her to throw a baseball. Make her proud to throw like a girl a girl with a wicked slider.

7. She will fight with her mother. Choose sides wisely.

8. Go ahead. Buy her those pearls. 9. Of course you look silly playing peek-a-boo. You should play anyway.

10. Enjoy the wonder of bath time. 11. There will come a day when she asks for a puppy. Dont over think it. At least one time in her life, just say, Yes. 12. Its never too early to start teaching her about money. She will still probably suck you dry as a teenager and on her wedding day.

13. Make pancakes in the shape of her age for breakfast on her birthday. In a pinch, donuts with pink sprinkles and a candle will suffice.

14. Buy her a pair of Chucks as soon as she starts walking. She wont always want to wear matching shoes with her old man.

15. Dance with her. Start when shes a little girl or even when shes a baby. Dont wait til her wedding day.

16. Take her fishing. She will probably squirm more than the worm on your hook. Thats OK. 17. Learn to say no. She may pitch a fit today, but someday youll both be glad you stuck to your guns. 18. Tell her shes beautiful. Say it over and over again. Someday an animated movie or beauty magazine will try to convince her otherwise.

19. Teach her to change a flat. A tire without air need not be a major panic inducing event in her life. Shell still call you crying the first time it happens.

20. Take her camping. Immerse her in the great outdoors. Watch her eyes fill with wonder the first time she sees the beauty of wide open spaces. Leave the iPod at home.

21. Let her hold the wheel. She will always remember when daddy let her drive. 22. Shes as smart as any boy. Make sure she knows that. 23. When she learns to give kisses, she will want to plant them all over your face. Encourage this practice.

24. Knowing how to eat sunflower seeds correctly will not help her get into a good college. Teach her anyway. 25. Letting her ride on your shoulders is pure magic. Do it now while you have a strong back and shes still tiny.

26. It is in her nature to make music. Its up to you to introduce her to the joy of socks on a wooden floor.

27. If theres a splash park near your home, take her there often. She will be drawn to the water like a duck to a puddle.

28. She will eagerly await your return home from work in the evenings. Dont be late.

29. If her mom enrolls her in swim lessons, make sure you get in the pool too. Dont be intimidated if there are no other dads there. Its their loss. 30. Never miss her birthday. In ten years she wont remember the present you gave her. She will remember if you werent there.

31. Teach her to roller skate. Watch her confidence soar.

32. Let her roll around in the grass. Its good for her soul. Its not bad for yours either. 33. Take her swimsuit shopping. Dont be afraid to veto some of her choices, but resist the urge to buy her full-body beach pajamas.

34. Somewhere between the time she turns three and her sixth birthday, the odds are good that she will ask you to marry her. Let her down gently.

35. Shell probably want to crawl in bed with you after a nightmare. This is a good thing.

36. Few things in life are more comforting to a crying little girl than her fathers hand. Never forget this. 37. Introduce her to the swings at your local park. Shell squeal for you to push her higher and faster. Her definition of higher and faster is probably not the same as yours. Keep that in mind. 38. When shes a bit older, your definition of higher and faster will be a lot closer to hers. When that day comes, go ahead give it all youve got.

39. Holding her upside down by the legs while she giggles and screams uncontrollably is great for your biceps. WARNING: She has no concept of muscle fatigue. 40. She might ask you to buy her a pony on her birthday. Unless you live on a farm, do not buy her a pony on her birthday. Its OK to rent one though. 41. Take it easy on the presents for her birthday and Christmas. Instead, give her the gift of experiences you can share together.

42. Let her know she can always come home. No matter what.

43. Remember, just like a butterfly, she too will spread her wings and fly some day. Enjoy her caterpillar years. 44. Write her a handwritten letter every year on her birthday. Give them to her when she goes off to college, becomes a mother herself, or when you think she needs them most.

45. Learn to trust her. Gradually give her more freedom as she gets older. She will rise to the expectations you set for her. 46. When in doubt, trust your heart. She already does.

47. When your teenage daughter is upset, learning when to engage and when to back off will add years to YOUR life. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how. 48. Ice cream covers over a multitude of sins. Know her favorite flavor.

49. This day is coming soon. Theres nothing you can do to be ready for it. The sooner you accept this fact, the easier it will be.

50. Today shes walking down the driveway to get on the school bus. Tomorrow shes going off to college. Dont blink.

Lorena says: September 12, 2011 at 4:13 pm For #21, thats OK if the keys arent in the car. Driving with a child on your lap is so dangerous for the little one. dont risk it! But when my kids played with the wheel when the car was turned off, they loved it. When you have to move the you find out how strong a two-year-old really is! Lorenas last blog ..What does that really mean to you? Reply Lorena says: September 12, 2011 at 4:15 pm other than that, the whole thing was amazing and I cried and linked to it on facebook. Lorenas last blog ..What does that really mean to you? Reply angel says: September 13, 2011 at 8:39 am I think the author meant in a safe and controlled environment, not on a busy road. when my son was 2, as soon as we got to our street (a cul de sac) I would put him in my lap and let him drive home (meaning he could steer while my hands were on the wheel, and we were going no faster than 3 mph). it was completely safe and he loved it!

Teresa says: September 12, 2011 at 4:26 pm As I read through this list, I thought most of them apply to our sons as well with a posible slight variation.

Reply 6. Khyman says: September 12, 2011 at 4:40 pm I see that the author this listing could not find any culturally diverse images which explains some of items on the list. Great thinking and talking points, but more importantly encouraging fathers to be present and active in the lives of their daughters. Wonder what the author would say about Mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, or fathers and sons. Reply 7. thejeepman says: September 12, 2011 at 11:05 pm 51. Dont catch yourself always saying Maybe later.maybelater will never come. Reply 8. Ricky says: September 12, 2011 at 11:18 pm Simply, Wow! Rickys last blog ..Thank You Reply 9. Daniel says: September 12, 2011 at 11:19 pm I actually have an amendment for #49. Her concepts for dating (the whos and the hows) will come from you or from her friends. Show her how it ought to work. It wont make it any easier on you, but it will make even more difficult on the wrong element. Reply CamIAm says: September 13, 2011 at 6:37 am Teach her how to date by taking her on daddy daughter dates. My dad did and I made sure any boy i went out with treated me right because I knew what to expect! Reply Leslie says: September 13, 2011 at 2:07 pm LOVE that advice. LOVED it. =) Reply 10.

What is even more elating for me is to know these are coming naturally to my husdand for our to girls 7 and 3. Keep up the good work , God bless you for being a natural. Reply 12.

I loved these things. It made my heart a bit sad though as Im a single mom whose ex doesnt live in the country and hasnt seen my daughter for 6 years. Reply 13. sheila says: September 13, 2011 at 10:49 am this is all so very true and so hard to grasp that fast but you blink and it is gone ..go for the guasto while you can Daddys Reply 14. Austin Personal Trainer says: September 13, 2011 at 10:58 am Wonderful list. I would add reading to your daughter. I love to hear my daughter say, Read to me Daddy. Reply 15. Zizi's Mom says: September 13, 2011 at 12:06 pm (Sigh) Great list. Zizis Moms last blog ..9/11 for Zizi Reply 16. jones0674 says: September 13, 2011 at 2:14 pm As Im reading this my daughters thirteen yrs young. Im very happy to see alot of whats been mentioned I have done in her earlier yrs and still doing likedancing, respecting her mother, basically letting her be her. What upset me the most are the things that Daddys do with their Daughters while they are babies. I sooo miss those times of her being 100% reliable on me to take care of her for everythingplaying games ectect. Alot of people dont take the time to smell ALL the roses along the way, once you pass them all you have are the memories. Savor every second like its your last. Reply 17. awesomesauciness says: September 13, 2011 at 3:11 pm Mother of two now-grown girls and every word you speak is true. I thank God their father knew to follow these rules long before anyone thought to write them down. Reply 18. Daddoo says: September 13, 2011 at 3:36 pm With the tire-changing, teach her to drive a manual transmission (stick-shift). And teach the process in order: brakes FIRST, not waiting until theyre urgently needed. And make sure she pays attention, but make time to be distracted by the butterflies. Reply 19. Ler says: September 13, 2011 at 3:52 pm And where is the list of the 50 ways to deal with the effects of being abandoned by your father. This author, while he means well, is living inside a delusion that every many that has a daughter wants one. Mine did not. But he got one. And he left. And reading this list just makes me want to scream because my story is the one most often told. Not the story about the little girl whos Daddy loved her so much that he took her to the splash park every day. This author is doing just as much of a disservice to young women as the magazines and movies he puts down in his list. I will not share this with anyone, especially not my little sister. I love her too much. Reply 20. Jean Upchurch says: September 13, 2011 at 4:46 pm

If my dad was alive he would be 111 years old and could pass this test easily. No one wrote rules for him. It was just the natural thing to do. I think of him every day and fortunately married a man he loved almost as much as I did. Life has been good because we cared. Rule #1 is probably one of the top 10. Reply 21. DemoGuy says: September 13, 2011 at 8:08 pm This is great! It brought me to tears and made me hate being out of town every week even more. Brings everything into a different perspective when you list out so many things that we as fathers should be doing. There isnt one thing on this list that isnt 100% right on the money. Reply 22. Mark Sutherland says: September 10, 2011 at 9:45 am Just a short time ago I was in a traffic court and had to watch as a man had to pay a 200.00 or more fine for letting his son sit in his lap while he drove the car, so please scratch that one out, it can be very costly! The rest are great! Reply 23. Kris Bacheller says: September 12, 2011 at 11:55 am Dear Mr. Sutherland, the intelligence of allowing a child sit on ones lap to drive and the very ADULT decision of WHERE you choose to do this is closely related. Finding wide open spaces is also on the list, find the space, do the drive. Be smart. Six kids. . . no traffic court for lap sitters. All of them did it. All of them are confident drivers. Reply 24. dixie says: September 12, 2011 at 4:44 pm Go to a lonely back road, find a farm that a friend owns, or get the police involved (If you live in a small town) and ask them to clap for her as she drives a few feet, but do it. We lived on a farm, and I learned to drive at the age of 10. I still love to drive. Reply 25. Oscar says: September 12, 2011 at 7:13 pm I think you should be ok if you keep it inside a private parking lot. Reply 26. Little driver says: September 12, 2011 at 8:58 pm Stick to private property and youll be fine! Reply 27. Samuel says: September 12, 2011 at 11:10 pm Itd be worth every penny. I get the rules etc; but thats a bit steep. Still, the joy that my kids get when I let them do things with me would far out weigh any fine.
