30. Thank you.
I appreciate the compliment and your sharing. You know, it seems to be a near-universal desire of fathers to want to protect their daughters. It also seems pretty obvious to me that protecting your daughter begins with preparing her to protect and fend for herself in a world that's still incredibly hostile towards women. You won't be there for her forever, and there's plenty of jackasses she might meet (like your ex) that aren't going to "protect" her AT ALL.
