What some of our viewers said:
Nicole MarieI still appreciate what my dad taught me NOT to be as a parent. He taught me how incredibly important it is to be there for your kids and to make sure they know how loved and important they are!
Robbie McKinney My dad taught me to love deeply, be honest and make the best french toast on Earth. Plus sharing our faith and praying. Lastly, loving the Lord, miss ya dad rip dad.
Shawn Kingbird Dad advice comes from all aspects of growing up. Little boy to Man. Man to Father. Father to Family. Ask me when I’m 80 about the best Dad advice I’ve gotten. Right now, he still letting me fall on my face to learn.
Lisa Phillips Get what you get and don’t throw a fit! Now that I am older I have realized that I was being taught gratitude and that sometimes times were tough and that if I want something I have to work hard for it!
Chris Seastrand My advice came from my grandpa not my dad. When I was learning to drive he told me, you can be right, but you can be dead right too. Always stuck with me
