The bond that develops between a father and his daughter is always special.

And that bond is clear to see in this video of Ohio dad, Randy Gaines, having an important talk with his young daughter. The video was filmed by the girl's mom, who just had to share it with the world.

Before the talk, Randy had accidentally hurt his daughter's feelings by using a nickname she didn't like to hear. He could have just laughed the whole thing off, but instead he decided to own up to his mistake and teach his little girl a lesson.

“You can be mad at me. You can be mad at Mommy or your sister. You can be mad at yourself,” Randy says. “Just don’t hang onto it for too long, because that’s when it gets to be a problem.”

Randy's wife, Deceena, wrote a caption to explain the situation and honor her awesome hubby!

“I think I just watched and listened to one of the most powerful conversations in my life. This man right here. His ability to connect, and to speak from the heart. Open and honestly. I fell in love with him before we had our girls, but moments like this make me fall even more in love with him. We connect on this level, and my heart explodes when he connects to his girls like this,” she wrote.

“I am so blessed, and so thankful to have this man as my other half. Our girls are blessed to have him as theirfather. Thank you Randy Gaines for being you. P.S. I’m posting this without his permission, but I think this is an important video!” she continued.

 

I think I just watched and listened to one of the most powerful conversations in my life...

This man right here. His ability to connect, and to speak from the heart ❤️ Open & honestly...

I fell in love with him before we had our girls, but moments like this make me fall even more in love with him...

We connect on this level; and my heart explodes when he connects to his girls like this... 💥 ❤️

No yelling. No screaming.

Talking. Discussing emotions and why we have such feelings. HEALTHY outlets (walking, running, punching a pillow, etc)...

Getting down to the root of the problem. Setting boundaries, because feelings were upset. RESPECTING boundaries, to ensure it doesn't occur again...

Parenting which neither of us had growing up. Listening ears as little ones speak. Knowing you are still loved no matter what. Knowing you are enough, always...

Our goals as parents are to ensure they do not endure what we did as children...

I am so blessed, and so thankful to have this man as my other half. Our girls are blessed to have him as their father. Thank you Randy Gaines for being you ❤️😘😍💍💑👨‍👩‍👧‍👧🌟

P.S. I'm posting this without his permission, but I think this is an important video! 🙃😬
I'm not going for a walk, he's taking the kids on a walk, giving me space to do school work
