Top 10 Reasons Why a Child Needs Their Dad

My dad isn't there, my mom and him broke up when I was seven... I haven't seen him in over five years, I have a step-dad and he treats me better than my actual dad and he supports financially and emotionally, but it isn't the same...
The Top Ten
1 That person helped make the child

I have a gay daddy and that's just natural as having a biological dad.

2 Every girl wants to be "daddy's little princess"

I really like every item on this list. My father does treat me like a princess - since I'm his youngest daughter. He's free with his time and hugs. He makes me laugh. He's my rock, my hero, my best friend, my personal bodyguard, my teacher (mainly of bad habits! ) He's my daddy :) and I love that wise old man with all my heart.

3 To be a complete family

Same things with moms. You need moms to complete a family too.

4 For guidance
5 For protection

Children need protection from everything and from everyone

6 For financial needs
7 For happiness

If your parent left then that person is constantly on your mind and sometimes you will question if it was your fault... It wasn't your fault...

8 For a shoulder to cry on

This can be for many things, for example when a girl has her first heart break.

Sigh. Two dads, four shoulders, yet all too busy for years.

Yeah, my dad works all day.

9 For a good example

If you parent walked out then the child will think it is ok to do it when times get tough with their spouse/mate and that isn't right.

10 Just for a dad to be there

For most of my life so far, my dad lived with us. But since we are in need of more money, he now lives in Seattle where he works for my uncle Scott. He sometimes visits on weekends, though, and my two half sisters now live in Seattle and visit as well, but it isn't really the same.

That is as simple as it gets...
