    Yeah, I've found that I'm pretty old school in many of my parenting philosophies. I don't knock others, but I know what would work in my household.

    So if someone acts like a gentleman thats some form of inequality?

    If a dad looks out for his daughter that is some form of inequality?

    Apparently it is...

    My daughter knows right from wrong and she can take care of herself, but guys can get out of hand and that has been an issue around here before...

    Guys at this age will pull out anything to get what they want...

    As for CCF, I say "Yes ma'am" to people younger than me... sounds like you are afraid of getting old... ;) Just remember it beats the alternative...

    As to those that said I was implying to my daughter she was a lesser person, get a life. You are dreaming up WAY too many things...

    Do you have a daughter? If so, how old is she?

    I have daughters who happen to be smart enough to question why I am not putting the burden to follow the rules on them. We discuss, and laugh at the old fashioned parents in our area that treat their daughters like fine china that breaks so easily and needs to be babied.

    "you can't go out with the boy because how he wears his hat is silly"

    that is the making of one messed up father/daughter relationship

    So do you hold any standards for the boys that your daughter goes out with?

    Or do you leave that up to her?

    First you would have to know if he has any standards himself, or even knows what that means, before asking if he would apply any of that for his daughters.

    I put the same standards on her my parents placed on me.

    what standards were placed on you as a youth? Did you have to seek your dads approval prior to asking a girl out? what rules did he set out for you? did he tell the girl directly that you had to be home at a certain time?

    You are who you hang out with. I'm wouldn't let my daughter hang out with that type. Lives can change in a second and I'm going to make sure she's with decent people and not some cocky smart*** kid who thinks it's cool cause some no-talent rapper wears his cap like that.

    then you already failed. At this point your child has 1-2 years before being an adult. If you can't trust them to make good decisions about who to hang out with now, they won't be a whole lot different in two years.

    Since you didn't answer my question, do I assume that you have no standards for the boys that take your daughter out?

    I have standards about the types of people that can hang around my house, and criminal elements are not welcome.

    As a father, if I have to directly ban my daughter from dating a criminal, I already failed to raise her properly.

    Now your turn. What rules do you give your sons? Do you talk to the date your son is going out with and lay out the rules for her?

    Now you're on to something. You're catching on. Rules and standards are not bad. Equality across the board - so you should be all in on this!

    Or, would it make the boys feel like a wuss, you know, being treated like girls and all?
