Day 5 of 30 Days On Dads – Take Her Out and Talk

My Lexi

I’m still learning this one myself fellas, but thankfully, we haven’t had to argue about the boyfriend yet!

“Don’t worry if your time doesn’t go smoothly. Take her for a stroll in the park. If you end up arguing about her boyfriend, that’s all right, because even arguing is a form of connection. You wouldn’t argue with her if you didn’t care about her – something she’ll recognize, whether she confesses it later or not. Arguments aren’t necessary for you and your daughter to figure each other out, but they don’t necessarily hurt either. The one rule is that when the argument is over, it’s over. Don’t pick at it. End it, make up, and move one – all before the sun sets. And then take her out again.”
