In a recent piece published on Yahoo Shine, Texans running back Arian Foster talks about how he felt as a jobless 23-year-old learning he would be a new father and the six things he will try to teach his daughter, including how to deal with men.
5. Men and her worth. (loads shotgun) A sore subject for any man with a daughter. I will teach her that she is a young goddess. Help her understand her worth. Let her know that she must hold every man accountable for who they are and how they act towards her. There will be a day when I give her away, and they say that a woman spends her life looking for her father in her groom, so until that day I will try to be the example of a man that she eventually will seek out. Men tend to be motivated by one thing. Don’t fall victim to a prince charming. If he cares for her, he’ll act accordingly. If not (aims shotgun), well, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
Do you guys think he was joking about the shot gun or not? Either way, good advice here by the philosophy major, and the most important thing is that he is recognizes the integral role he plays in giving her the blueprint for the qualities she should look for in a partner.
