A dad gives his daughter a challenge. She accepts it. Now his nails are fabulous.
Father-daughter bonding done right.
Doyin Richards knows what people are thinking when they see him walk into a nail salon.
He says he often gets odd looks from people wondering what a 6'2", 205-pound black guy is doing there.
It's simple: He's there to get a pedicure with his daughter. And he's completely unapologetic about it.
Let's be honest. Gender stereotypes are soooo 1955. Why should seeing a dad get a pedicure with his daughter be any weirder than a mom playing baseball with her kid? Or a dad playing with Barbies. Or a mom watching Star Wars with her son. Or a dad doing his daughter's hair.
Spending time with your kid, doing the activities with them that they enjoy?
There's a word for that: parenting.
Watch Doyin take his daughter to the salon (and use the opportunity to challenge her to eat her broccoli too) in this episode of "What Dads Do":
You could share this so it no longer needs to be shared one day. Totally your call.
