    I remember earlier this year I was doing tree-service with this awesome guy I worked for in Missouri and we got done early one day and went back to his house to drop off the chipper and what not, coming down the road we could see his house and we saw some kid running out of his house as FAST as he could, jumps on a moped and speeds off into like two yards to shortcut onto the road. The look on my bosses face was PRICELESS!!! His youngest daughter was home and was ready to talk to dad when we got into the driveway. They had a nice 30 minute chat about having boys over when mom and dad aren't home. That won't fly with my wife and I. Hopefully she won't have any boyfriends until she's like 21 or older but I know I might as well think I'm going to win the lottery if I want that to happen.

    I don't say much but I do:

    1. Mumble something about the bodies in the lake being exposed as the water level is dropping
    2. Open carry
    3. Always manage to be cleaning the Ar or the AK

    My daughters were raised right and I trust them...but not the boys. They have told so many of their friends that I am a cop (actually ex-cop) that some potential boyfriends have been scared to meet me. That's okay by me.

    I'm 26 (just to put this in perspective), here are my meeting the father experiences or lack of.

    The majority of girls I 'dated' in high school, never met my parents and I never met theirs. The high school I got into was in a very wealthy part out of town (used a friend's address to get into it, city schools were hardly any different than the streets) and parents were either always at work and/or out of the country. Mostly doctors, executives, international lawyers, types.

    The woman I dated the longest (after high school), was really the only one who had a dad around. He pretty much just said "If you hurt my daughter, I'm the last of your worries". She had four older brothers, five male cousins who were pretty much brothers, and tons of uncles. They all lived in the same town. I pretty much got the message.

    And that sums it up, gentleman.

Girls with self-confidence and a positive image of men/women relationships will chose boyfriends that treat them with respect and reject those who do not.
    That is the best advice, and so true. And dads, you can be a good dad and yet still fail at this: you MUST be there for your little girls. Not just "present," but emotionally there for your girls. She must be able to talk to you without fear. Take her out shopping, fishing and whatnot so she knows you are there for her. Girls who do not have dads who are active participants in their lives WILL scramble for the first guy who gives them attention.

    Been there, done that, honors student, order of protection against an ex boyfriend, still have to use a crowbar to pry a conversation out of my dad.

    Thats good advice
    My daughter is only 3 right now & the wife & i have already worried about her teenage years.
    The other day my wife asked me why i dont worry about our son's teenage years (he's 5 now) & i simply stated "with caleb i only have to worry about 1 penis but with hailey i have to worry about hundreds" she laughed for like 5 minutes...
    Actually i think i like the "drunk uncle" scenario that Martin Lawerance & Will Smith played out in the movie "Bad Boys" when redgy came to pick up his daughter

    I don't have children yet but when my daughter brings a boy home I'm thinking I'll pull some inspiration from "30 Minutes Or Less". Hand him a teddy bear shot full of holes and smile. "I liked that bear. I don't even know you." And when my son starts dating it'll be more like "Son, if you cheat on her, hit her, get her pregnant or otherwise break her heart, I'll do that girl's father a favor and end you myself."

    My daughter's only 8 weeks old, so we are a long way off from having to worry about boyfriends. My plan is to teach her values in the way that I treat her mother. I will also be teaching her how to shoot guns from an early age, as long as she is interested of course. With any luck she'll also take to riding motorcycles, which will hopefully teach her some responsibility. I'm going to let her know from an early age that she is free to do whatever she likes, but she is also free to deal with those consequences. Daddy's not going to bail her out of her bad decisions, that's the way I was raised by my father, and I think I turned out pretty well.

    You guys can try to scare your daughters suitors but the reality is it's up to your daughter to make the right decisions. When push comes to shove if your daughter is in love with him there will be little you can do to stop it.

    What would you say if your daughter brought home a girl friend to meet you or your son brought home a boy friend to meet you??? (it happens)

    I don't take kindly to threats. If some out of shape, middle aged dude ever threatened to kill me, he would have more to worry about than I would.

    I've met a bunch of fathers of girls I've dated. They were all reasonable.

    When I talked to my daughter's date I made sure they set in a chair where they could see the two very large crossed 12 gage shotguns mounted on the wall behind my chair. Never had a problem.

    Sounds like you're one of those that fathers everywhere are watching for.
