As a parent, it is natural for one to have many expectations for the offspring. In the baby stages, the parents are usually young adults that have finally decided to keep the baby. This is a stressful time as the infant grows up needing to be cared for 24/7. As the infant becomes a young child, the magical times for the parents begin. The young child is innocent and absorbs information like a sponge.
At this time, a dad may have wonderful expectations for his daughter. However, the age of puberty leaves any parent perplexed with the total change in behavior. No normal father likes the thought of his daughter being with another male unless it is her future husband.
