Father-Daughter Dances Are Seriously BS
A well-meaning father took pictures with his arms around his daughter's Homecoming date, mimicking the couple's pose. A comment was later added, and the picture posted on social media. The full story is that both families were at the photo shoot and it was intended to be a joke, okay'ed by everyone involved. Therein, I'm not trying to judge this particular story, more use it as an example of the old-fashioned norms in which we continue to mindlessly participate. While the role of overprotective father is not a new one, it is a tired concept that needs to just die, already. Aside from the assumption that my daughter yes, I also have daughters is incapable of good judgment and protecting herself and her standards, this ridiculous concept imagines my sons likewise incapable of the same good judgment and standards. Because here's the thing — thoughts are not equal to actions.
Can we just get rid of the father-daughter dances and mother-son events already? Last month, my 8-year-old's elementary school held a "daughter dance. Yes, she has a father who would have been happy to go with her, but as a mom of three, I don't get to spend a lot of one-on-one time with my eldest child either.
Date nights are hard to come by, but sometimes the best dates are with our sons or daughters! I mean… is there anything cuter than a daughter dressed up for a dance with her dad?! Wear your finest dancing clothes and enjoy tasty appetizers, desserts, and plenty of fun on the dance floor. Remember your special evening with a keepsake sterling silver charm from Larson Jewelry and corsage; both sold separately. Dads, treat your daughters to a special evening out on the town. Dances will take place from 2 — 4 p.
Father/Daughter Mother/Son Date Night
We have known each other for a couple of years, but recently acknowledged that we like each other romantically. All our other family and friends do not see what the issue is and are very supportive. However, our children say the situation is "weird and unusual", they will not "ever accept it" etc. They are doing everything possible to end our relationship.
