Fathers Know Best: Best Advice from Fathers
Most of the time, my dad throws out tips like the following: “Make sure you eat at that restaurant. It’s a good time to buy a house.” Or he tells me when to get my oil changed or doles out advice on anything from insect bites to being self-employed. I admit that a lot of his words go through one ear and out the other. It’s just what happens when you grow up and take your parents for granted.
However, I began reflecting on the jewels of wisdom he’s dished out throughout the years. I was surprised at how many things he’s taught me that I continue to use today. I’ve also included advice from other dads in honor of Father’s Day. It might remind you of your own father, teach you something new or rekindle a memory of why the man in your life (your dad, uncle, step-dad, father of your children) has done so much for you.
