Rule #1 If you plan on taking my daughter on a date and come to my house and honk your horn or call her cell phone you'd better be the UPS man, because you are not picking anything up.Rule #2 If you touch my daughter be prepared to have removal of the touching limbs from your body in any such way that I feel appropriate.Rule #4 In today’s world, sexual activity among young people is becoming rather common place.Just because this is a commonality does not mean that it will be happening with my daughter.If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.Rule Three: I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.It was fun to watch our kids run all over the place and play.My kids couldn’t be more different when it comes to playing.
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is: "early." I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls.His “rules” sent a clear message: “What my daughter does is her own business, and you’ll answer to, not to me.” As the father of four daughters myself, I found this man’s laissez-faire attitude to be a little unsettling.I believe a dad has a moral obligation to protect his children from harm, to prepare them for life, and to provide wise counsel along the way — all of which calls for a hands-on approach to parenting.I agree with Feminist Father on his first two points (I don’t make the rules and You don’t make the rules).However, I disagree with his conclusions, so I decided to create a little T-shirt of my own — a Christian Dad’s response to Feminist Father, if you will: GOD makes the rules. I know that none of the men who date (or eventually marry) my daughters will be perfect. But I do expect them to have hearts on fire for Jesus. I want them to love my daughters with an enduring, committed, self-sacrificing love. What sort of rules or guidelines have you set for your sons and daughters when it comes to dating? Want a “Dating Rules” T-Shirt for yourself or someone you love? (Please note that the graphic is on the front of the shirt, not the back).
