Default Ugh! I'm in trouble!

My wife and recently found out that we are going to have a second daughter! I'm not looking forward to having two teenage daughters in the future! I'm totally greatfull that I will have two girls because they'll always have a special place in my heart and will always be Daddy's little girls. My current daughter who is 2 1/2 loves cars and helping me work on them. Whenever she hears a loud car/truck/motorcycle her attention is glued to it!

So, anybody with multiple girls have any parental advice?......

I don't have 2 girls.

I am however the uncle to 3 girls (3 months to 8 years), and the advice I gave my brother inlaw was to sell all of his guns, and start stockpiling sedatives, lest he do something rash...

I have 2 young daughters, 2yrs. and 5 yrs. They really are the greatest kids in the world!! Watch out though, the second one is always the wild child. Hey, my daughters both love cars, trucks, jeeps, and motorcycles. It's great. Anytime one drives by or we pass one or drive by something in a parking lot they both make sure I know it's there.

NNNOOO you just clean the guns when the boy picks her up and to me you... And smile with that fatherly look ( this comes in time ) the one I know what you are thinking and forget about it.. Say nothing more about that. Raise your daughters with love and values then you will not have a problem..

I will never forget the first night I met my daughters new (old) boyfriend. I was working for the Sheriff's Department at the time. Wife / Daughter & boy were sitting in the family room, boy had back to me. I walk in and always unloaded my glock as soon as I hit the house. Daughter says "HI dad, this is Mitch", Mitch turns around just as I'm racking the slide (checking for a clear chamber), His eyes got as big as dinner plates. I think he crapped his pants

That's classic!

I'm hoping the intimidation factor works for me! 6'3" 225 lbs goatee and by the time they are of the teenage years I'll be completely bald headed!

You are doomed. I have 3 daughters, ages 4 through 8, and I'm already on prozac.

My co-workers has 2, but almost high school age, every day he is looking at what guns to buy.

You are not doomed. I have 2 girls, one soon to be 30 & the other 26. Both have college degrees, jobs, married, husbands have jobs & both have given us a grandchild.

Trials and tribulations while growing up? You bet. There were times when I could have strangled them both. But I really didn't find it all that bad when they started dating. If you raise your children with a good amount of communication and trust, it's just another phase. I'm not going to try to tell you my kids were perfect or that they didn't do some things I would have disapproved of. But, if you haven't raised your kids with decent morals by the time they hit age 15-16, then it's too late.

We always made it a point to meet the new boy and talk with them. I don't think I ever felt compelled to threaten one of them. A couple we didn't like & it didn't take long for the girls to figure out they were dating a dirt bag. On one occasion we had to have a sit down talk with a daughter & her boyfriend.

I will say that between the ages of 15-17 Dad and daughters had conflict. But it was funny how when they went off to college/ moved out that they started calling dear old dad for advice.

Don't sweat it, it will be fine. A home filled with love and good communication solves a lot of life's problems.

There won't be any issue on that end. The wife and I were both brought up in loving homes with lots of communication (I.E family dinners most nights of the week, Family trips etc). I lot of this knowledge will be passed down to my kids! I do all lot of activities with my daughter now and there isn't anything I wouldn't do for her. She's very well behaved and smart. I'm worried the daughter 2 will be a handfull because daughter #1 is so good!

Money is always an issue. But same scenario, they knew where we both stood on that issue. My kids didn't have a free ride to college. Rewinding, I had that option from my parents & didn't appreciate it till much later in life when it was too late. So, I told my kids that if they wanted to go to college, fi they wanted it bad enough, they would figure out how to make it happen. We would help but not foot the bill. So they both worked their way through college. One with a bachelor's from a small Christian school, the other with a masters from MSU. Help came where needed with explanations. Not...... "dad, I need more money, please send".
