When it is father daughter night out, I take my daughter to a sit-down restaurant. I open the doors for her, and make her feel special. She is special.
My daughter deserves to be respected and treated well. I know this. She doesn’t know this. I am teaching her lessons by my actions, that she can carry forward into dating relationships later on. She is ten years old. Hopefully I have at least 5 years before she even asks to go on a date.
During dinner, in a sit-down restaurant, where my daughter and I talk about how she’s doing in school. We talk about the boys she likes. We talk about what she thinks of family matters at the time. We usually pass on desert.
No, I’m not skipping out to keep the father daughter date night cheaper. After dinner we go to a movie, or do something else fun for her. Snacks are usually involved.
