Reconnecting with Daughter

“What I am most looking forward to in 2018 is connecting with my 15-year-old daughter more. The biggest challenge for me having a teenage daughter is boyfriends, man. Boyfriends. Just helping her to choose. She is going to have her own mind, and I accept that. I can’t prevent her from dating boys, all I can do is be there for her and talk to her.

“Hopefully she will see the kind of man that I am, and it will help her choose wisely. And I mean the man I am now, not the man I was.

“I wasn’t around a lot in her life when she was younger. She lives in a different state, but I am doing everything I can to rectify my mistakes. I am being intentional in building a father-daughter relationship with her. She sees that I am serious about our relationship, and she is opening up to me. It’s really coming together nicely now.”
