A single dad asked his little girl to her upcoming father-daughter dance in the best way. The adorable photos have gone viral overnight, and it’s easy to see why. Not only are the images totally precious, the scene he set is a fantastic example of how to teach consent. The fact that he didn’t assume she would say “yes” is the perfect way to let her know that in relationships, the ball is always in her court.
Jason Garmon set up a surprise for his 11-year-old daughter, Skylar. Unlike most fathers who would probably blindly assume they were taking their daughters to a father-daughter dance, Garmon decided to leave that choice up to his daughter. He presented her with a lovely set-up of iced tea, a table for two and a sign asking if she would go to the dance with him.
