OnPoint on WACH: Importance of father-daughter relationships
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - For this week's Father's Day edition of OnPoint on WACH we examine the significance of father-daughter relationships.
You've probably heard that having a strong male influence is important in a young boy's life, but it's equally important for daughters to have one as well. A positive father-daughter relationship can have an important impact on a young girl's life and even determine whether she develops into a strong, confident woman.
A father's influence in his daughter's life shapes her self-esteem, self-image, confidence and opinions of men. In fact, experts say the type of men that women date and have long-term relationships with are also directly related to the kind of relationship a girl has with her father.
This week we invite some Midlands fathers and their daughters to the program to talk about their relationships and the impact they have on each other's lives.
