According to Keith Hudson, recovering football addict and author of A Letter To My Daughter (Tad Publishing), girls feel completely neglected by their dads once football season is underway.
Football abandonment causes so much jealousy and resentment in daughters, Hudson says they often refer to the sport as Dads Other Girlfriend.
Fantasy football a.k.a. The No. 1 Enemy makes things even worse, since dads are glued to every detail of every game.
In the end, dads know more about players than their own daughters, which really screws up their relationship.
However, the harmful effects of football can be intercepted.
Hudson suggests dads regain possession of their father- daughter bonds by setting aside uninterrupted time each week to have a meaningful chat with their daughters about their lives.
They can also watch the game with their girls, so long as theyre not completely zoned out.
