Luckily, some of these daughter quotes will help to provide a starting point, with words of encouragement, and simple reminders that whatever accomplishments you may have to date, raising a daughter is probably your biggest one.

The responsibility of building a daughter’s self-confidence falls first on the parents’ shoulders. Of course, there are many things to take into consideration.

If your daughter is young, she will grow up and start rolling her eyes. But that’s OK. She’s a teenager trying to find her true identity and her inner voice. The great news is that the values you’ve instilled in her will help her make better decisions, even under peer influence.

With a little help, she’ll finally turn into a fine young lady that knows how to take care of herself. That’s your reward. And don’t worry. No matter how strong, independent, and mature she may be, a daughter still needs her parents. You're never too old for love quotes.
