As a father who was an only child growing up I have to say that I was a bit out of my elements in regards to knowing much about what it meant to be a father of a girl (I still feel this way much of the time). When my first daughter was born I had to learn much about anatomy and what to do with this different anatomy so that they remained clean and healthy (let alone know where and how to wipe or other issues like that).
As a male you just don’t have to worry about these issues, but with girls it is a whole new world in this regard. The odd thing for me still is that even though I have gotten a handle on the physical grooming aspects of being a girl and how to help my daughters through these issues, I know that in only a few years there will be even more that I will have to deal with in regards to these issues and my world will be rocked to the core yet again.
When it comes to this new stage in my journey as a father I know that I will allow my wife to take point on explaining things, but what I don’t know is if that means that I will have to have the conversation then about drugs and alcohol and/or sex or whether this will be a joint effort (I sure hope it is).
Isn’t being a parent fun! I know it is, but you definitely have some interesting conversations along the way!
