7 Reasons for Daddy’s to Date their Daughters

7Reasons

ATTENTION ALL DAD’S OUT THERE WHO HAVE LIL’ GIRLS!!!

DADS, take your daughters on dates!

After a post was made by my friend, I got to thinking about my daughters and I wanted to share something with you dad’s out there that is on my hearts. A few weeks ago I was at the high school visiting some of the youth from CHAOS (our youth ministry) and made the comment about taking Caity, my daughter who is 5, on a date.  When I told them this, one of the girls looked up surprisingly and said: “Wow! My dad has never taken me on a date.” The look on her face was one of

sadness and disappointment and it broke my heart. I wonder how many more young ladies out there have never been on a date with theirs dads. One of my greatest joys as a dad is to take my girls on dates every so often.

DADS, take your daughters on dates! It does not have to be something big. Just spend time with just them and make it just the two of you.  It could be dinner and a movie, going for ice cream, to the park to play, going for a walk with them or taking them deer hunting (which Caity loves to do)! DADS, take your daughters on dates.

DADS, here are 7 reasons for you to take your daughters on dates!
1. It shows them how they should be treated by boys when they do go on dates (you know when you finally let them go on a date, when they are like 35!)
2. It shows them how much you love them and that you will always be there for them.
3. It makes them feel special.  In a day when a lot of dads are too busy for their children, it speaks volumes to them that their daddy wants to spend time with them.
4. They will see you completely differently; it shows them that you are ultimately their knight in shining armor. 5. It will give them memories of a life time of you spending time with them.
6. They need you.  They need to spend time with you (Even if they really know it yet)!
7. Lastly, it’s for you! You will be completely blessed by the time that you spend with them.  You will have memories that will last a life time, instead of having “I wished I would have” or “I should have” thoughts after they are grown and gone from your house.

There are probably more reasons than these, but these are just the ones I thought of this morning.
