Spotlight Nonprofit: Building positive relationships between daughters and daddies

LatinaLista — The saying “Daddy’s girl” is destined to become obsolete as the rise in single mother families continues and fathers are only a parent in name only, not to mention the outcomes for fatherless girls is traditionally not good.

According to research, girls who grow up without their fathers are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. They are also more likely to become pregnant as teens.

A new non-profit serving the Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, and Maryland areas wants to turn those sad statistics around by making sure that every little girl has a relationship with their daddy.

Daddy’s Girl, with the tagline: “Successful Daughters, Supportive Dads” works on bringing out the best in both fathers and daughters. Providing a parent mentoring program, health, nutrition and dance classes, workshops and webinars and special events where fathers and daughters can interact and have a good time, the organization’s goal is to foster healthy and positive relationships between fathers and their daughters.

Aside from their programs, Daddy’s Girl highlights father-daughter relationships in a variety of ways like featuring pictures of well-known celebrity dads with their own daughters on the organization’s Facebook page.

Daddy’s Girl is an organization poised to shift the paradigm of fatherless families by strengthening, supporting, and guiding men who are willing to be present, life-changing forces in the lives of their daughters.

    I do not think the term daddy,s girl will become obsolete. It perhaps will become more indicative of social class status as a chlid who has a two income household has more access to economic resources.
