Daddys rule to dating
So just what are the rules in this brave new dating world?
Well the Rules ladies are back and there are saying – THE RULES and the game of dating is still alive- and shows no chance of waning.
The shirt suggests that we’re talking not about an adult woman but an underage daughter.
For me these rules made one thing clear- dating was a game and in order to be successful at saidÂ game I would need to learn these rules and never ever forget to take them into consideration- especially if I met a guy I actually wanted to be with.
As the National Fatherhood Project puts it: They also have data suggesting that the absence of a father is tied to greater risk of abuse, neglect, malnutrition, obesity, delinquency and incarceration, aggressive behavior and relationship instability.
So just the presence of this father is a powerful, powerful message to the daughter and to those she might date.
So the idea that parents wouldn’t have dating rules during the parenting process is mostly just an abdication of parenting as opposed to some kind of feminist empowerment thing.
It took me years to realize this but parents who didn’t have rules for their teens tended to be parents who just didn’t care enough about their kids to provide guidance.
