Alanis Morissette on Fathers

Click here for the lyrics to Morissette's Princes Familiar. The verses describe what some women (unconciously more often than not) look for in a man based on the bad examples they saw growing up; the chorus is a plea for fathers to model things differently for their little girls.

I have heard james Dobson say that the relationship of a daughter to her father is the most important relationship in society. It shapes the way entire families are formed and relate. Very sobering.

That's very true. I was giving some informal advice recently to a father worried about his daughters' approach to adolescence and all the sexual temptations that await. I reminded him that the absolute best way to ensure that his daughters stay sexually pure is for him to nurture a strong relationship with them as their father. Dads are vitally important!
