Do you have daughters?

 When my first daughter was two years old, remember learning about the role I played in her life and it woke me up to the important responsibility that I have been her dad.  And now the dad of two daughters and 10 years into this journey, I am still learning and making mistakes.  But this is how we learn, we grow and improve. 

The measure of the men she goes into the world to find will be compared to the kind of man I was to them. 

Michelle Watson Canfield, PhD, LPC, is a national speaker, author, licensed professional counselor of 27 years, and founder of The Abba Project, a nine-month group forum for dads whose daughters are in their teens and 20’s.
