This video is currently doing the rounds in social media and it had me thinking… How do you show your child how someone should treat you? 

One Dad showed his daughter how a date should be, like this…

What do you think? Is it a little over the top?

  • I wouldn’t think it is how a date should be at the little girl’s age. It’s a cute video. So many Dads don’t bother to spend much bonding time with their daughters. It’s normally more of a Dad / son bond and Mum /daughter bod these days in families. I have heard the comment Mum treats the girls differently to the boys,

  • Thank you for sharing the video.

  • Think it is a little over the top – also, I wonder if his marriage has split up.

  • This video shows the importance of taking the time to spend quality time with our children as often has we possibly can. They deserve it.

  • One thing struck me watching this video is that dad expressed to be nervous ! That tells me it’s bit over the top. Also that he’s all dressed up. I don’t have anything against my husband taking one of the kids out to do a special thing in turns, but please be who you are and be relaxed and have fun…no nervous behavior needed, no dressing up needed… And also it’s more important how you treat your wife and kids the rest of the time (besides the dates).

  • It’s a beautiful video, great memento for her to look at when she’s older. Like others have said, I agree with the setting a great example by treating her mum how she should be treated to show her daughter. Things like this make me sad, though in regards to my youngest who will never have something like this.

  • No, I don’t think it’s over the top. I think he’s created a lasting memory for his little girl. I think maybe he should have waited a little longer,mshe looks a little too young to comprehend fully

  • I’ve seen this before and I think it’s lovely. He is her role model and can also teach her in his relationship with her mum/his wife.

  • I think that is gorgeous.
    I hope he keeps taking her on dates.

  • I’m not a fan of this kind of thing. The best way to demonstrate to your daughter how a guy should treat her is to treat her mum with love and respect so she sees how a healthy relationship plays out IRL.

  • Fantastic – a lot of focus is on mums when it comes to parents, ie more media build up for mother’s day than fathers etc. This is great, further emphasises the importance of male role models – good ones that is.

  • That is something she will always remember. Dads and daughters have a special bond and his example will always be how she allows herself to be treated by men!

  • I remember when this made a news on tv. It’s shame how many people had a negative reaction to it.I liked how the dad treats his little daughter to a special date.
