How do fathers cultivate their r/ships with their girls?

Asking this because my twin daughters are already 11 and I hope to build an even closet relationship with them as they grow up.

DD1 is closer to her father. They can discuss about movies and share the same hobby, photography. Hubby drive her to school and I suppose that constitute bonding time. DD2 is closer to me but perhaps because she is only 5.

For me,DD1 is closer to my wife while DD2 is very sticky to me and can chat about her friends in school,growing up years in Malaysia,her reliance on ZehZeh and how she enjoyed staying with us in Singapore.

Could depend on the characters of wife and husband... I am goofy around daughter, whereas wife is more serious and proper. Daughter speaks goofy language with me, does rougher things like kick paper soccer, play fighting .. and i feel the bonding whenever she finds me for these activities that she likes to do. altho i am hoping she dont grow up too fast .. i still cherish these days.

my hubby is the one coaching daughter in her work...other than that, he brings her out to cycle and play wii games. he is the one she will approach if she wants to buy anything...naturally she prefers to go out with daddy because they love to eat tidbits. yes, they play fighting too.

Spending time with our infant daughter, taking care of her physical needs and supporting her Mom is the start of cultvating my relationship w/ my daughter. And once the little lady starts toddling around, I would get down on the floor — on her level — and play with her.

Talk more about things, not just work or life. Girls tend to chit chat more and it helps to build the bond.

my husband made it a point to tell our daughter about his day and his learning points everyday. Its a staple for our family, and promotes bonding

My daughter is 15 this year and she is very close to her father. He is very patient in helping her when she first took up cycling. He could engage her easily with table games or impromtu games on the go. He reads to/with her.

She is so close to him that i envy him sometimes...
