Being Single Thinking Double – The Intro

A Modern Man’s Guide to Raising a Daughter

1414476095501To my beautiful daughter Sasha Eve Said who has always been the joy in my heart and the smile on my face. “If I could give you but one gift, it would be to see yourself through my eyes and then you would see what a magnificent young lady you really are”

This blog is neither aimed at single parents nor parents of young girls alone; it is however borne of my own experience as a single father of a young girl. Of course, all children are different, some athletic, some outgoing. My one conclusion is that it is neither purely nurture nor nature but a combination of both and as I have no control of the nature side, this is my guideline for nurturing your children.

“Despite our best efforts, our children will grow up just like us”

I am never entirely sure where this story begins, but I shall spare you a life history and at the same time try not to leave out relevant information that has shaped my path and more importantly, the contents of this blog. I feel there are a number of moments in time that have each had a profound effect on me and have brought me to this point in my life.
