As the Holidays are upon us, I wanted to suggest a few very practical things to do with your daughter. Typically, both you and your daughter will have a little down time coming up. Thanksgiving is this Thursday and you will likely have a long weekend. Then, Christmas vacay is right around the corner.
Here are a few suggestions to help take advantage of the extra time you will have with your daughter. Obviously depending on your daughter’s age, you will need to make adjustments.
*Take your daughter out to breakfast or lunch over the holidays. (Do it more than once)
*Sit down and watch one of your daughters TV shows WITH her. Take an interest, ask some questions.
*Sneak into your daughter’s bathroom at night and write a note on her mirror. Tell her something you are proud of her for.
*Take your daughter to a movie over vacation.
*Ask her “If you could do anything at all during your vacation, what would it be?” Then DO IT with her!
*Look at the “written resources” section of our website (www.myfatherdaughter.com) Find the section with the “Father Daughter Scriptures” and read her a new bible verse each day. Then discuss it by saying “what do you think that means?” and “What would change if we lived like we believed it was true?”
*In the “Video Resources” section of our website, show her the “Evolution” video and discuss how most of the beauty projected in the media is NOT real.
*Tell her you are going to start a new tradition called the “Father/Daughter Get away.” Discuss where the two of you are going to go on an overnight trip sometime this coming spring or summer.
This is just a start. Take any of these or make some up on your own. The important thing is that you engage with your daughter somehow, some way. The upcoming month can afford you more of an opportunity to do so.
As Nike said…. “Just Do It”
I’d love to hear about anything you did with your daughter. Share your success with us!
Have an awesome Thanksgiving Holiday with your family!
