Welcome to Daddy Daughter Time. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to deepening the relationship between fathers and daughters.
Our wish is that every child would have two active and involved parents in their life. So, it’s not a surprise when we get asked this question: “Why only Dads and daughters?”
Recent scientific research has proven that the time fathers and daughters spend together has dramatic effects. The research shows that teen pregnancy rates, suicide, and drug use is reduced while positive body image, test scores, and graduation rates go up when a father is actively involved in his daughter’s life.
Our goal: To encourage fathers to intentionally be more active in their daughters’ lives. We make spending time together fun and easy.
You don’t have to be a member to attend our events. Anyone can purchase a ticket. But members get a pretty sweet deal – 12 months of events for one price. That’s an entire year of events like snow tubing, horseback riding, a Spring dance, live theater, and more all for around $8 a month.
Another reason we focus solely on the father/daughter dynamic? Some fathers might find raising sons easier than daughters. Raising young women comes with a unique set of challenges. Daddy Daughter Time events not only provides a way for a bond to be built between a father and his daughter, it also offers a network for Dads as we take away the stigma of men connecting through their children instead of sports or career.
Other studies have shown that the role of fatherhood has changed. Fathers today want to be much more active and involved parents yet are still under served by media and underrepresented in court. Today’s father wants more than to just play the “policeman with a paycheck” role in the home. But they face many struggles balancing family and work while wanting to play an equally active part in nurturing their children.
Our DADUP program offers these fathers invaluable encouragement and “dadvice” focusing on five traits: Dependability. Accessibility. Devotion. Understanding. Patience.
Again, anyone with a daughter (or a Dad!) can come to our events. But members not only receive a great deal, they also receive monthly activities they can do together at home, feature articles, blogs, and special offers and giveaways.
