The second (and obvious) thing daughters need is love and affection: the kind of love that builds and nurtures security. Daughters need strong fathers and mothers who love them sacrificially, take responsibility for them, and understand their need for protection. Daughters need wise mothers who will teach and equip them to be secure in who they are in Christ.
This means that daughters need to know they are the joy of their parents, which translates into lots of hugs, kisses, reassurance, comfort, praise, and support. And they need to feel loved and know how important they are to their parents.
Women run on the fuel of love and security. We all need this, and little girls (and big girls) are no exception. When they feel unloved and insecure, they will look for attention, affirmation, and what they might think might be love in other (wrong) places. This is why little girls who are needy for affection might be climbing on the laps of men they barely know.
One of the signs that a little girl is secure is her hesitance (or even hostility) to respond to strangers; and by strangers, I don’t just mean men in passing cars. When you have guests in your home, and your little girl is reluctant to respond to the attention that one of your guests is attempting to give her, this can be a healthy sign. Of course, it can also be rudeness, so you want to pay attention. For example, if an older gentleman is trying to be grandfatherly by inviting your daughter onto his lap, and your daughter is having none of it, I would be grateful and pleased. She is getting enough male attention from her father and doesn’t need anymore even from kindly old gentlemen. If, on the other hand, she won’t even say hello, then that is impolite. That is not what I am talking about here.
So if you see your little daughter being too friendly to men, I would advise you not to correct her verbally, but to draw her away gently and consider yourself warned: time to start pouring it on, particularly Dad. This explains why older daughters can get into inappropriate relationships: they are needy for love and attention, particularly male attention.
You may think that you are already giving your daughter tons of affection, and I believe you. But when her tank is low, no amount of reasoning will fill it up again. Just pour it on and ask God to bless your efforts.
Little insecurities can come out in funny ways. So if you notice a new little issue that doesn’t seem to get fixed by instruction or correction, you might consider just pouring on the love and affection. My father-in-law calls this saturation love. Give her a hug every time she passes by and tell her how dear she is to you. Bad behavior can be a form of looking for attention. Any attention (she thinks) is better than no attention. And at least bad behavior gets a response.
