It is entitled 10 rules for dating my daughter. I both laughed and resonated with this list. I then shared it with a few friends who have daughters and they loved it too.

Many readers of this blog have very young daughters and you have not even thought of such things. However, many of you have older daughters and you are in the middle of this tumultuous time of life.

By Mikki My little girl, Kara Beth, is 28 today. The years have flown by. I remember the excitement of knowing I was pregnant, the thrill of knowing my baby was a girl, the moment of first hearing her heartbeat, the joy of her arrival. And now here we are so many years later, she and I. I am her mom when she needs, and how I love that role and yet we have grown, evolved, changed.
Joanna wrote the following family Valentine poem with relatives in mind: mother, father, grandparents, mother/father-in-law, son/daughter-in-law, aunt, uncle, cousin, etc. It is intended as a Valentine verse for relatives that has a Valentines Day message they will appreciate.
If time were kept in a bottle, of the memories I know of Dan, I could tell you he was a gentle loving man. He may have looked gruff on the outside, But his heart was full of love on the inside. He loved his children and he loved his wife, And to sum it all up he enjoyed his life. He would talk of fish tales and his big deer He was a man that showed no fear. He would call them everyday just to let them know He always loved them before he would go. His laughter, his stories, or even his bellowing ways, Will always be remembered in the coming days.
He will be missed, not only by family and by me as well, But by those he endeared as time will tell. I would have a million bottles by now of the memories of Dan, The 21 years I have known this wonderful man. He may have been the teddy bear in a grizzly bear disguise, You had to see through him to know he was wise. He was like a father to all that came around, No other love could be greater or could be found. His Ginger will miss him but she will go on, He would want that for all and not weep because he is gone.
He would want everyone to remember his laughter and smile, He will look down upon his angels when he walks that mile. He will be happier fishing and hunting with no pain, Doing the things he loves without a strain. So with this being said, keep these memories alive, Keep a bottle full of his memories by your side.
That contingency, and therefore the true mettle of your belief, has now been called into question. If you truly believe what you say you believe, it shouldn’t matter whether she’s gay. What should you do? For starters, it seems you need to look inside yourself and figure out what you truly believe. Regardless of what you say you believe, and even what you verbally teach your children, your actions will have a far greater impact than your words ever will, especially on a matter such as this and especially since, if you start acting against what you’ve taught her, she will see you as hypocritical.
You should also make sure you understand the difference between “being supportive” of someone and “encouraging” something.
To my daughter when she turns eighteen (many, many years from now): Well, hey there, kiddo. Remember me, the mom you used to love but now probably hate with every bone in your teenage body?
We were then flooded with interest for T-shirts. Dads have been sending in pictures of themselves, in their shirts along with their daughters from all over the world. This light hearted shirt is bringing thousands of Dads further into the important conversation of their role with their daughter. Take a look and join us! Through the magic of Social Media, it was by far the most read, passed around and commented on blog in the life of this little project. The concept of a Dad issuing his ground rules for dating his daughter seemed to unite the entire tribe of Fathers!
In case you missed the February 18th blog or would just like to refresh yourself, go ahead and click HERE to see it again. Some of the feedback I received was around the actual rules. It just so happens that due to my experience as a Young Life leader and as a parent, I might have a thing or two to say about being a Dad. At first I made a few dozen shirts and gave a few away. Now I am selling them to whoever wants one. No sheer, light gauge material for me. Real men wear heavy T-shirts!
He created an immensely popular Romantic hero—defiant, melancholy, haunted by secret guilt—for which, to many, he seemed the model. He is also a Romantic paradox: His faceted personality found expression in satire, verse narrative, ode, lyric, speculative drama, historical tragedy, confessional poetry, dramatic monologue, seriocomic epic, and voluminous correspondence, written in Spenserian stanzas, heroic couplets, blank verse, terza rima, ottava rima, and vigorous prose.
In his dynamism, sexuality, self-revelation, and demands for freedom for oppressed people everywhere, Byron captivated the Western mind and heart as few writers have, stamping upon nineteenth-century letters, arts, politics, even clothing styles, his image and name as the embodiment of Romanticism. In the summer of Byron moved with his mother to Aberdeen.
I’m the one person who wears the words ‘hustle, loyalty, respect’ on my T-shirts and merchandise. My audience is children. It’s very flattering to see a kid wear your T-shirt; it’s even more flattering to have a dad come up to you and say, ‘I watch you with my kid.
Family Promises to My Future Daughter-in-Law As a mom to a boy I realize that a day will come when he will find someone else, someone who he loves more than his mama. And for this person he will leave my home and choose to spend the rest of his life with them. I know that I will inevitably become a mother-in-law. As a wife I know how hard it can be to be to deal with a mother-in-law. So the other day after a nice long vent about my own mother-in-law, I decided that I needed to make a list of promises to my future daughter-in-law.
I promise… to trust your parenting decisions. You are his mother and you know best.
P and try to replace it with some of your favorites from the toy box. You take one of the stuffed animals, a bunny whose mini versions you are wearing on your feet and turn to admire yourself in the mirror again. Your dad came around and kissed us both!

As my daughter starts secondary school and encounters her first bully, I reflect on my own experiences, in a poem about bullying.
Metamorphosis or transformation is a unifying theme amongst the episodes of the Metamorphoses. Ovid raises its significance explicitly in the opening lines of the poem: This phenomenon is merely one aspect of Ovid’s extensive use of illusion and disguise. Cultural influence of Metamorphoses No work from classical antiquity, either Greek or Roman , has exerted such a continuing and decisive influence on European literature as Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
The emergence of French , English , and Italian national literatures in the late Middle Ages simply cannot be fully understood without taking into account the effect of this extraordinary poem. The only rival we have in our tradition which we can find to match the pervasiveness of the literary influence of the Metamorphoses is perhaps and I stress perhaps the Old Testament and the works of Shakespeare. Melville says that “It may be doubted whether any poem has had so great an influence on the literature and art of Western civilization as the Metamorphoses.
The Metamorphoses was the greatest source of these narratives, such that the term “Ovidian” in this context is synonymous for mythological, in spite of some frequently represented myths not being found in the work. Ted Hughes collected together and retold twenty-four passages from the Metamorphoses in his Tales from Ovid , published in In the upper left, Jupiter emerges from clouds to order Mercury to rescue Io. The poem retained its popularity throughout Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and is represented by an extremely high number of surviving manuscripts more than ;  the earliest of these are three fragmentary copies containing portions of Books , dating to the 9th century.
Bred on the Atlantic, can be stayed; And for an hour I have walked and prayed Because of the great gloom that is in my mind. I have walked and prayed for this young child an hour And heard the sea-wind scream upon the tower, And under the arches of the bridge, and scream In the elms above the flooded stream; Imagining in excited reverie That the future years had come, Dancing to a frenzied drum, Out of the murderous innocence of the sea. Helen being chosen found life flat and dull And later had much trouble from a fool, While that great Queen, that rose out of the spray, Being fatherless could have her way Yet chose a bandy-legged smith for man.
May she become a flourishing hidden tree That all her thoughts may like the linnet be, And have no business but dispensing round Their magnanimities of sound, Nor but in merriment begin a chase, Nor but in merriment a quarrel.
A DAD is being applauded online for his twist on the traditional “rules for raising my daughter” fatherly thing. rules for dating his daughters’ #poet #poem #poetry #writer #wordporn.
