A father has set the benchmark on what a good dad should be by driving for five hours to take his daughter to a dance.

Parenting can be tough at the best of times, but when two people go their separate ways for whatever reason, co-parenting needs to be the top priority.

Some couples adapt effortlessly and their kids are raised surrounded by love, while others take slightly longer to adjust to the new circumstances.

That being said, a viral video of a dad surprising his daughter by taking her to a dance is showing that even at a long distance, it's still possible to be an awesome parent.

In the TikTok video, the dad in question can be seen arriving at the house with flowers in his hands, ready for the big night.

After an anxious wait, a young girl opens the door and immediately latches onto her dad with a big hug, and is soon overcome with emotion.

It's clear that the father-daughter duo have a strong bond, and even her grandparents sent flowers for her big night.

The caption over the video reads: "My son and his wife drove 5 hours to make sure he took his daughter to the dance! If he wanted to he would! I'm so proud."

Check out the heartwarming video below:

Positive comments flooded in, with one person saying: "She don’t even care about the flowers. She just needs her Dad."

A second person stated: "Awww, people don’t realize how important daddy’s are!! Love this so much!! Great job Dad!!"

A third person said: "This is beautiful. Her brother in the background jumping up & down! He knew what this meant to her!"

There are other amazing fathers out there too, like one military father who traveled over 30 hours to surprise his daughter at her graduation ceremony.

US Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Douglas Hernandez traveled 30 hours from Dubai to attend his daughter's graduation ceremony at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

The surprise visit left his daughter, Pamela Hernandez, and their family surprised, as Douglas managed to keep his plans under wraps until the very moment he appeared at the ceremony. University officials confirmed that nobody besides Douglas was aware of his surprise visit.

Expressing her disbelief and joy, Pamela shared: "I had no idea what was going on. I thought he would be on a virtual screen. I did not know he would be in person. It was amazing," per Fox5 Vegas.

The touching moment resonated with people across the internet, gaining an outpouring of support and admiration. Comments flooded in, with one person expressing: "Beautiful picture. Congratulations to the young lady and thank you for serving [our] country Dad."

Another commenter highlighted the significance of such milestones, stating: "Any graduation is important you don't get a do-over Congratulations young lady Good job Dad memories are precious [sic]."
