Did you know that it is your privilege to spend time with your daughter more often than with any other man on the planet? By spending quality time with your wife, you are increasing the chances of having a long and happy marriage. You can show your little girl that you value her as much as you do your children. All you need to do is create a special time and day to encourage this bond between father and daughter.
Perhaps your daughter wants to go out for a night with her friends, but you don’t want to tell her what she should be doing because she might get in trouble. In such a case, you can create her own special mother daughter time. Invite your daughter to spend some time at your house on Father’s Day, but to stay there for a special treat – like playing the role of a lookout or a burglar. Maggie the Burglar could be a really fun character and your daughter would love to spend time playing such a character.
What if your daughter doesn’t want to spend time playing the burglar? If you don’t want to let her escape to her room, all you need to do is to arrange for her to stay in the living room with you during the day. She can talk to you about her favorite subjects while you take her shopping or preparing dinner, or you can read to her from the storybook. She will love being a part of the family and will feel privileged to spend time with her mother.
You could organize a special Father’s Day dinner in your home. This will make her feel very special indeed, as she will be the center of attraction. Invite all her male friends for dinner on Father’s Day, and ask them to give her gifts in her honor. You can give her a bouquet of flowers or a necklace, or you could have the whole family gathered for a candlelight dinner. Just remember to choose something nice for the father, because he’ll be feeling very special indeed.
There are so many more Father’s Day ideas for fathers out there. It’s up to you how you spend time on Father’s Day with your daughter. Tell your daughter how much you love her and what a special day this is for you. Don’t take the opportunity to take advantage of her feelings. Let her know that you respect her opinion and that it’s nothing personal. This will let her know you don’t use her as a way to make yourself feel better!
Dad, you don’t have to do everything for your daughter, just be honest with her and tell her how you feel. And most importantly of all, don’t spend it with her making her feel guilty about her choice of a boyfriend. Spending time with her will always be more special if you take the time to tell her how much you love her. So take time out to celebrate your Father’s Day with your daughter and see what a wonderful day it is for both of you. You’ll both feel so much closer and more appreciated by each other.
