Questions for Your Next Daddy-Daughter Date

Men, if you have been blessed with a daughter then you know that there is something really special about the Daddy-Daughter Relationship.

Many Dads have shared with me that when they first heard their wife was pregnant they hoped for a boy.  But the moment that little girl was placed in their arms they wouldn’t have traded her for a thousand boys!

I know the feeling!  Three times my life has been greatly blessed with a beautiful baby daughter being placed in my arms! Each of my daughters have grown into wonderful women – two now with children of their own and the 3rd recently married!

In the past few years I have been encouraged with seeing lots of social media photos of all dressed up Daddies and Daughters on their way to a Daddy-Daughter Dance.

A year ago a good friend shared with me about about a Daddy-Daughter Date Night hosted by Chick-fil-A that included two sets of questions to help get a great Daddy-Daughter conversation going:  – one set for a Daddy to ask his Daughter and the second set for a Daughter to ask her Daddy.   I am reprinting them here with permission from Chick-fil-A:

Daddy to Daughter Questions:

  1. What is one thing you think you will definitely be great at when you’re an adult?
  2. If you could spend more time doing anything in the world, what would it be?
  3. If you had a robot that could help you with one chore, what would it be?
  4. What is the silliest thing you have ever done?
  5. What makes a good friend? Why?

Daughter to Daddy Questions:

  1. In what ways do you think you and I are most alike? Different?
  2. During a normal day of work, what kinds of things do you do?
  3. If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
  4. What is the most amazing thing you have ever seen with your own two eyes?
  5. What’s something adventurous you wish you could do?

Now Three More Questions for All Dads:

  1. When are you going to ask your daughter(s) if she will be your date?  And if I may suggest – please schedule these dates regularly – this is not a once and done kind of date!
  2. When do you think your daughter will be too old for a Daddy-Daughter Date?  My answer:  My daughters still love going out with Dad!  And I wouldn’t miss these times with them for the world!
  3. Will the questions above also work with your son(s)?   You bet they will!

Moms do not be left out – Ask your son(s) and daughter(s) for special dates and great conversations too!

Dads & Moms what questions would you add to the lists above?
