Ideas for Connecting with Your Daughter
Looking for some new ideas for having fun with your daughter? Get our ideas for spending time with your little girl - even if she's not that little anymore. And, every child is different - so take our basic ideas and use them to come up with what fits the personality/interest of your daughter.
- Go on a Date. "Dating" your daughter is the best way to show her how she should be treated by other men, and to give her a firm foundation for healthy relationships with men later in life. Do dinner and a movie, take her to a local event, or try a new restaurant together.
- Enjoy a Hobby with Her . Bake cookies together or have her teach you how to make a necklace for your wife. Does she like to sing? Break out your guitar and have a jam session.
- Go Shopping. Yes, that's right, we said it. Probably not your favorite, but if it's a good way to spend time with your daughter, that's what's important, right? Take her for something specific she's been wanting - a new pair of earrings, a new purse, a cute sweater. It may not be your idea of a fun afternoon, but remember, it's important to your daughter.
- Let Her Do Something for You. A lot of girls enjoy cooking or baking, or other crafts that produce an end product. Let her bake you cookies and then praise her for how good they are, or ask her to make you one of her special pictures or drawings. She'll feel honored.
Connecting with your daughter may take you out of your comfort zone, but it's worth it. By spending time with your little girl you show her what to expect from the other men in her life - including future boyfriends/dates - and you'll provide memories the two of you will always be able to share.
