Come on, what do girls like to do the most? You know, besides talk about boys. They like to go shopping. Therefore, you should go shopping together. This always builds up a bond as you learn what each other likes.

5 Have Dinner Together

You should schedule a dinner together. Even if it is just one time a month, you should have that special day together – just you and your daughter. Even when they are 5 years old, this is a good plan.

4 Talk about Relationships Together

I always think that having an open relationship is a good idea. You know you have a good relationship when you are able to talk about your daughter's relationships together. You could even share some stories of your relationships from the past, where you went wrong and what you should have done differently. Maybe, this way, she would learn from your mistakes before she actually makes them.

3 Have a Forgiving Attitude

You should always have a forgiving attitude. It is important to realize that no matter who you are, you are going to make mistakes. Think back to when you were your daughter's age, do you remember all of those mistakes you made? How would you have liked your mother to handle it back then? How do you think you should handle those mistakes now?

2 Listen to What Your Daughter Has to Say

These are 7 tips on building a good relationship with your daughter. Even though my daughter is 6, I do some of these things with her. Somehow, she especially loves to go shopping for clothes. Yes, she’s definitely a girl. So, do you have any other ideas?
