Title

"Dear Dad"

Description

This magazine article tells the story of several fathers whose daughters have left home for college. Interviews with sets of fathers and daughters echo themes of tension between fathers and daughters particularly regarding emotional intimacy and communication as well as newfound understandings of one another. A portion of the article details Cormier's memory of the night before his daughter left for college and he both faced the reality that she was not a child and recalled scenes from her childhood. The article also mentions the communication and letter writing habits of fathers and how they differ from those of mothers. Mothers focus on daily life, grades, and health while fathers talk about boys and political or social issues of the day.
