There is something special about the relationship between dads and daughters. Whose heart doesn’t melt when you see a big gruff-looking guy pretend sipping out of a plastic teacup because it makes his little girl happy? Daughters can soften dads, bring out their sensitive side and open them up to new perspectives. And dad can help shape a girl’s view of men. He sets the foundation for how she expects to be treated and how she feels about herself. This month, when we naturally pay tribute to dads, we decided to highlight the unique bond between dads and daughters.
These five local families show that daddy’s little girl can be any age.
