Overprotective Dads Set Dating Rules For Daughters

25 07 2008

There are good reason for the words: “daddy’s little girl.” But the mantra can also become a burden for some grown girls. Many young ladies who have the privilege to have their father around can sometimes find it frustrating when their so-called Dads become nuisance to their relationships.

As parents, there should be a boundary to how nosy fathers can be to grown-up kids’ affair. Full monitoring is perfectly fine when kids are young but at college-age (17-up), I think parents should back off a little bit. Being overprotective or helicopter parents can backfire. Some kids would just rebel and start doing things contrary to what their parents want.

The father of American Idol star, Jordin Sparks (both inset), once said he would kill any guy who tries to date his 18 yrs old daughter. For such statement, I’d say he is an example of a jerky parent. He definately can’t be with his daughter 24/7.
