Fathers rules for dating daughter

Nothing encourages a little healthy reflection and self-assessment like having a kid.

How much can a feminist father do to change the way others treat his daughter and son?How honest should we be with our children when that honesty fosters new fears?Dawson doesn’t claim to have the answers, but watching him wrestle with the questions is more satisfying anyway.Dawson’s crisp and clever art is particularly good at illuminating abstract concepts and bringing them to life.The panels above, for example, are from his Cartoonist Studio Prize–nominated comic “Longstreet Farm,” which mulls over the relationship of his family to the natural world, but which also finds an ingenious way to illustrate the vagaries of historical memory most of us share.I confess I’m often shocked seeing men of my age and acquaintance making joking remarks about rules for dating their daughters.

Often these take the shape of comics posted to Facebook.

They might mention the dad having a black belt or a weapon.

I escaped it for 17 years of parenthood, but the odds were always stacked against me.

I have two beautiful and intelligent daughters, and eventually a boy smart enough to see it was going to come calling. My daughter and her boyfriend spend almost every free moment they have in our house.

We’ve raised them to seek their identity in the things that matter and not in the superficial, so they are somewhat intimidating to young men. But sooner or later a boy of equal substance was going to show up, and now he has. They both have busy schedules, but if they aren’t learning or working, they are in our home.

They love to cook together in our kitchen and try out new recipes.
