Dads becoming more protective of daughters in age of Facebook
London, June 15 (ANI): Fathers are becoming increasingly protective about their daughters as they fear the influence of social networking sites on them, a new survey has suggested.
According to a poll of head teachers at leading girls' schools, they "feel less in control because of social media" such as Facebook and Twitter.
Fathers are also concerned about the growing influence of celebrity culture on their daughters, with some "perceiving the world as a more dangerous place".
The trend emerged in a poll by the Girls' Schools Association, which represents fee-paying schools.
Ahead of Father's Day on Sunday, the organisation surveyed 180 members on fathers' roles in their daughters' education.
Parents are said to be enrolling girls in private schools at an increasingly young age to protect them from a growing 'WAG culture' that scorns academic achievement.
According to the poll, 49 percent of head teachers believe fathers are more protective of their daughters than they used to be, mainly because of fears over social media.
Just 5 percent said fathers were less protective these days, with the remainder detecting no clear trend.
"Fathers have legitimate concerns about protecting their daughters in a world where young girls - and boys - are subject to all kinds of pressures through the media," the Daily Mail quoted GSA member Alun Jones, principal of St Gabriel's girls' school in Newbury, as saying.
"These are real concerns," Jones added. (ANI)
