I agree language matters and “daddy daughter dances” are creepy. You do a good job talking about the issue without making people turn away by bringing up incest, but it’s a fact that “one in three-to-four girls, and one in five-to-seven boys are sexually abused before they turn 18, an overwhelming incidence of which happens within the family,” according to this article in The Atlantic. Anything that helps to normalize “romance” between parent and child, even playfully, needs to stop.
