On Your Relationship With Your Daughter

Dear Y.B.M.:

In this letter, I would like to speak with you about your relationship with your daughters. I do not think there is a sweeter relationship on God’s earth than the relationship of a father and his daughter.

It is the letter that I entitled “Women Folk!” Now, to my surprise, mothers, fathers, and men loved this letter, but many young wives and young women did not care for it that much. However, they handled it better than I expected. Well, this letter will be just as controversial, but at the same time just as helpful. The responses will probably be the same across the board. With that said, here are some more things that you need to know regarding the women folk.
