This is a comment by Eric M. on the post “Respecting My Growing Daughter’s Body“.
No need to feel weird or awkwatd about playing with your own children, male or female. That’s what fathers do. If you feel awkward, you will act awkward, and that is what she will remember. That may eventually cause her to feel awkward which doesn’t bode well for growing an airtight relationship. Trust me, as she gets older, she will very much need that airtight relationship with her dad and mom.
Just love them both equally, and play with them however they like being played with. I rough house with my daughters because they love it. If one did and the other didn’t, I would adjust. THE most important thing is for both to be 100% convinced that they are equally and genuinely loved.
