There’s nothing as special as a relationship between a dad and his daughter, but when dad works long hours and his daughter has a calendar full of after-school activities, it’s hard for the two to find time to spend time together — not to mention they may not have a ton of shared interests.
For young daughters
This might sound cliche, but little girls love tea parties and playing house, especially when they have people to play with them. Join in on a weekly party and really get into it. Yeah, this means you’ll have to wear a funny hat and pretend you’re one of the characters at home. Make conversation with her animals, ask her questions and just have some fun.
Daily Park Trips
Taking your daughter to the park on a daily basis will create a strong bond, especially if the park isn’t packed with kids. While at the park you can teach her how to play on different equipment and you can even play on the equipment with her.
For daughters in middle school
Your little girls is probably asking a lot of questions at this point, which is why learning activities are so beneficial! Take her to regular trips to the zoo, museums or other things in the area. Not only will she get to experience a lot of things, she will also learn a lot of things.
Showing up to her soccer games, talent shows, etc., is extremely important to your daughter, whether she admits it or not. Make a point to show up to these things as often as you can.
For an adolescent daughter
Bowling is an activity that you and your daughter can play and have a whole lot of fun with. You don’t have to do this weekly, but try and fit it in with your schedule at least a couple of times per week.
Learning to Drive
So this is an activity that can be scary for both of you. But, if you want to bond, there’s no better way to do it than by teaching her a life skill.
