Finally Someone Gave Dads of Daughters the Rules We’ve Been Looking For

Chad Taylor

My oldest daughter will become an adult in less than two weeks.  She will never know how much I love her and how much she means to me.  I’ve made my share of mistakes along the way and didn’t always get it right.  I had Makenzie when I was very young (I was a few weeks shy of my 20th birthday).  I was excited about having a daughter but had no clue what I was in store for.  I think every parent wants to be the best they can be but sometimes we fall short (and that’s OK).  I have a big problem with dwelling on the past, instead of living in the present.

My daughter and I are a lot alike and that makes it very trying at times.  Were both very opinionated and don’t always see eye to eye on things.  She’s getting ready to graduate from high school this year and will hopefully be attending college next fall.  Were actually doing a college visit today (St. Cloud State) and hopefully she’ll move closer, so we can spend more time together.  I loved reading Michael Mitchell’s “50 Rules for Dads of Daughters.”  It gave me a chance to reflect on what I did right over the years and areas where I may have fallen short.  Please take a minute to read Michael’s rules posted on  

My favorite rule; 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

That is one rule I didn’t follow with Makenzie lol maybe I’ll get it right when Macy is a teenager.
