Every young girl dreams of a fairy-tale romance. So what kind of guy should I be teaching my daughters to look for?
I thought about the things I looked for in my husband, and it made me realize what a wise choice I’d made by marrying Mark. And it also made me want to help my daughters choose wisely as well. They need to know what to look for in a boy. Their future and their children’s future happiness depends on it. Here are the 8 things moms should teach their daughters to look for in a boy.
1. Look for a Gentleman.
A young man should open the door for you, stand when you sit at a table, and carry heavy bags for you. Polite gestures like these reflect an inner dignity you’ll want in a husband.
2. Look for Honor.
Be sure to observe the way a young man treats his parents. He should always honor them not because of their performance, but because of their position as his mother and father.
