I know that not many men read my blog, for obvious reasons, but ladies, if you can share this with the father of your child, please do.
I also know many children do not have fathers.
Perhaps they have a step-dad or another father figure in their lives.
If not, mother’s you are the father, so please, do what I suggest here.
Take Your Daughter On A Date
No, I am not trying to suggest something creepy.
The fact is every young lady should learn what a proper date is.
I am not talking about anything elaborate or expensive.
It’s more about how she deserves to be treated.
We want our daughters to have a realistic view of what a date should be at her age.
This is best around the age of 12 or 13 but anytime before she begins to date on her own.
How To Take Your Daughter On A Date:
Set a day and time for your date night and dress nice.
Be on time.
Come to the front door of your own home, ring the bell.
Show her to the car, open the door for her, and all of the traditional things that all too often are missing from dating this day and age.
I do not care how independent a young lady is, or how modern our times are, something is missing from the dating youth of today, and that is manners.
It Is Not Anti-Feminist To Take Your Daughter On A Date:
I am not out to get into arguments with the feminist view.
I consider myself a feminist.
The problem is these days we are all arguing about what feminism is.
To me, I can be a strong, independent woman and do all the above for myself.
That does not mean I can’t allow a man to do these things for me too.
I by no means want to see our feminism detract from what it means to be a gentleman!
A young lady won’t know what she should expect if she has never been shown what she should expect.
Things To Do When You Take Your Daughter On A Date:
Take her somewhere reasonable for where a young man who may want to date her could take her.
Pay the bill.
Again, I don’t care about these “modern times” if you ask someone out you should offer to pay, be you male or female.
That is my opinion.
While you are dining, if she needs to get up for the ladies room, stand when she stands, pull out her chair for her.
When ordering, ask her what she is thinking of ordering, if she is unsure talk about what you are considering.
Do not order for her, order with her.
Laugh, ask her questions, this is not a time to pry but to converse.
Tell her about yourself, a time to maybe share something from your own life but don’t embarrass her.
Not only is this a good lesson for her in how a young man should act on a date, but a chance for you to bond with your daughter in a whole new way.
When you take her back home, walk her to the door.
Tell her you had a wonderful time.
You can show your daughter(s) how they should be treated daily by the way you treat your wife.
Take your wife on dates.
Don’t forget that we always need romance in our lives.
Through this, your own children, the boys too, will come to learn how to treat others, and how they should be treated in return.
I just really feel that these days we forget that children learn through example.
What do you think?
Do you think fathers should take their daughters on a date?
