1) First of all, well done on stepping up to the new standard. I approved almost all of the comments that were submitted. You have done very well with the raw data you provided and I am pleased. This was an excellent exercise and I have much grist for the mill. You can anticipate some new tools from me a bit down the road.
2) I am astounded at the exceptional level of fathering we have among some of you in our tribe. God has graced you with exceptional treasures in your father.
3) Having said that, I know that there are many of you out there who could not write a single thing about your father and that reading the glowing comments of others probably stirred up a whole lot of pain from your childhood. I hurt for you and wish it were not so.
4) I would like to flip to the other side of the equation now and hear about the role of the moms. What does it look like for a mother to do an excellent job of helping a girl child feel like a daughter in all the fulness of that term?
