Do you think it is a good ideal for dads to date their daughters. My husband takes my daughter out on a date a couple times a month. She looks forward to it and she is so proud to "go on a date"I think it is a great ideal. He opens the door for for and treats her like a guy should treat her. Do you think this is a good practice?

if he wants to spend quality time with his daughter then why doesnt he takes u along?? If they two can have good time together, you three can have a great time together...isnt it? a family together gives a lot of pleasure in itself.

We all do go put together as well. That is father and daughter time. I have mom and son time as well. What if I was divorced and living separate from my husband, what you are suggesting is that my daughter can never go visit her dad? All dads are not perverts.

im not saying that! If it was just a roam around you wouldnt have used word date! If they enjoy in parks roam around, go to a movie or zoo...etcetc...enoy her best icecream ..etcetc these things are really good...but u said DATE! so tahts unexplainable right? And once or twice is ok...why he avoids taking you majority of times?

I wouldnt call it a date, that is a little "weird". However, I do agree with you that having a "Dad and daughter day" is really important. This really helps them build a trusting relationship and brings them closer. I do not see anything wrong wtih that and think more fathers should do this, as well as mothers.

I see nothing wrong with a father taking his child on a date or calling it a date for that matter. You hear people say all the time I have a lunch date with one of my girlsfriends and nothing is ever thought nasty of it. At first it can sound a little off. I think that is a great thing to do. In my case I am the single mother of three girls and with every paycheck I get I take one of my daughters out for a Mommy and Me date, it gives them each one one time where I am focused only on them. I think that every father should take his daughter on dates that way when she does have a "true" date she know how she should be treated and how a father expects their daughter better be treated, and I just wish that more men would be involved in their childrens lives the way your husband is with your child.

maybe if i have the budget but i prefer dating with all my kids together with my wife..i dont think its wise enought to date only the females i have 2 daughters and 3 males so in order to avoid jealousy among them i have to be with them all.

Of course, if we had two daughters, He would take them both out together. But I don't see anything wrong with "hang out" time with your girls. If you two got separated, would all of your visits be supervised visits?

I think father can take their daughter and spend on the outerworld and get her accustomed with the recent happenings in their neighbour, city or town is good. But dating if you mean that's not usual for a father with a grown up daughter, though father is always fair.

Wow when I first read the heading I was scared-- You should put date like this "date".. then people might not jump to the wrong conclusion- : ) I think its great for daughter/dad bonding time- How nice-- for them to get a stronger relationship. I am pretty close to my dad-- He never took me on 1 to 1 "dates".. but we did alot together as a family growing up- I see nothing wrong with the bonding time between dad/daughter. Your daughter will remember these special outings with her dad forever!

Thank u. You have an open mind. My daughter is 5 years old. Trust me I am not one of those crazy moms that let incest go on!! I have read of some though. I would cut his throat in his sleep if I thought something was going on. He is the last person I have to worry about.

In my town, every year at valentines day, they hold a "father-daughter" dance. There is a catered meal first, its usualy very good. After wich there is a dj and dancing. When my girls were little, we used to go every year. We always had a great time. Now my girls are grown and I miss it. It was always good to spend time with them and it made them feel special. We always dressed up for it, me in a suit and tie, them in nice dresses, their hair dont up. Sometimes I would get them flowers too. I really miss those days.

Yes, that sounds really nice. A girl needs that from her dad. A male that loves her and respects her. She will grow up and desire the same quality in her mate.

my daughter is only 3 months old but i think it is a good idea for a man to do this with their daughter...shows them what a real man is like.

Yes family time is good, If they go out to eat it is still the same. My daughter and husband calls it a date.

i think if you mean date as spending quality time together then it's ok but to pretend to be together as a couple is a little strange. some men might take it too far with their child. i know this first hand with my father. but for them to spend quality time togethr as father and daughter that is really great.

Yes I mean definitely quality time as far as him showing her how a guy is supposed to treat her. Sick mental perverted fathers need help. Those men need to be away from all children including being out of the house!!!

Yeah I think it's a good idea, this way she has a chance to learn and form idea of how a man who respect and care about her should conduct themselves toward her
