Dad & Daughter Dates: 5 Ways That Girls Benefit From One-on-One Time With Dad!

If you have daughters, plan regular dates with Daddy so your daughter has a chance to spend some one-on-one time with her father. According to experts, girls who spend time with their fathers and have a trusting, comfortable, communicative relationship with him are more:

  • confident
  • set better goals for themselves
  • do better in academics like science and math
  • resist peer pressure more, and
  • lessen their chance of teen pregnancy and abusive relationships.

Once a month – or more often – schedule time for father-daughter lunches, park or zoo visits, or just playing games at home.
