A young family have shared the adorable reason that dad takes his daughter on monthly dates.

Canadian mum Caitlin Fladager took to her Facebook page to share their monthly ritual, which involves getting their toddler dressed up and taken out for the day.

Sharing a photo of her husband and daughter picking out clothes, Caitlin wrote: “He helped her pick out a dress for her to wear, got a little purse ready for her, held the door open for her, and made her feel like a princess.

“She loved it and was so happy when she got home. She will always know how she deserves to be treated because her dad sets such a high example.”

Other parents were inspired by the idea, with many commenting that they’d be stealing this parenting method to help raise their little girls and boys.

One user commented: “This world is filled with disrespectful people already we don’t need anymore. Applaud mom and dad for setting an example.”

Mum Natasha Maria Wells commented that she does something similar with her son, as it’s just as important to teach boys about being valued and appreciated as it is girls.

” I do this with my son once a month we go for hot chocolate and cake clothes shopping and then movies and dinner. He saves up as well to pay for things.”

Another wrote: “A lovely idea. Dads should do this for sons too. Let boys know that they need to treat men and women well and to remove the stigma attached to men showing affection to

other males and boys and men showing their emotions.”
