Dads don’t always get the credit they deserve. They get made fun of for their corny dad jokes or lack of fashion sense, but they’re quite often the first person you call when you’re faced with a tough situation. Why? Because the advice our dads bestow upon us is invaluable.
Although we are sometimes reluctant to take our dads’ advice at first because it sounds overly-protective or preachy, we always end up realizing they were right. We carry all those pearls of wisdom with us through our lives and it’s one of the best gifts any parent could give their child.
This year, in honor of Father’s Day, our editors are sharing some of the best life advice they have ever received from their dads. Some shared the more practical advice their dads have given them, and others shared more general life philosophies. What you will find ahead are six pieces of indispensable advice from appreciative daughters.
