A child needs it's father and mother. Both parents have different roles in a child's life , but both parents' love and attention are equally as important to the child.
Children have many questions as they get older. So one day both parents are going to have to explain why the father has never been there for their child. The answer can have a detrimental effect on the child for the rest of it's life.

A father should be there for a daughter financially until she is 18 years old, and with decent parenting she should have the independence to go out and get her own apartment, job, schooling and take care of herself. She is no longer a child after that. If the child is young, the father should be one hundred percent responsible for the fruit of their loins. Man up and take responsibility.
A father would always be emotionally there for his daughter. I'd go through fire and fucking brimstone if I had a daughter. But I would make sure she was financially independent at a certain age. No one likes a deadbeat lazy ass.
