When your children are small, father-daughter and father-son activities are abundant. Usually, they are fairly simple, fun, carefree, and easy to manage. After all, to many children, their daddy is their hero.
However, as a child grows and matures, that simple, easy-to-love father-child routine becomes harder to keep and easier to put on the back burner. Life gets in the way for both parent and child, and once things get off track, it can be difficult to realign.
That is why family retreats are so important, and a father-son or father-daughter retreat is a great way to create a blueprint for building the relationship you want with your father, son, or daughter.
Bridge the Generation Gap
The relationship between fathers and their children can easily become strained. While a father is more often the “fun” parent while the kids are growing, their need to dedicate their time to work often leads them out of the loop in their child’s daily life, eventually eroding into a cavern of years filled with unintentional misunderstanding.
So, when the child grows into a teenager and then into adulthood, a generational gap easily blocks the relationship between father and child. The father no longer understands the child, and the child no longer understands the father. This occurrence is usually unintended by both the father and the child, but its ramifications lead to an acquaintance-type relationship, at best.
Fortunately, engaging in a Father-Daughter/Son Retreat help to bridge that generation gap that has formed as you both have matured.
