On Father’s Day, you want to make dad extra happy, right? So don’t ask to borrow money or the extra car. Try to think of ways to give, rather than take from dad on Father’s Day! Here are our 5 suggestions to make dad smile this weekend:
• Take dad out to breakfast. Share some scrambled eggs and bacon with dad on Father’s Day. You can share some memories of your growing up days with him. Just don’t ask dad about his cholesterol or monitor the butter he slathers on his toast.
• Go to the ball game. What’s more American than a baseball game in the summer? You and dad can sit in the sun and watch the home team round the bases in style.
• Give dad a free pass. Whatever he wants to do, you’ll do it. If that means playing golf or watching racecars go round a track endlessly, you’ll do it. Because dad had to go to all your dance recitals or ball games growing up!
• Don’t have a culture war. Be at peace with his taste in music. If dad likes classical music, take him to a symphony, or better yet, an opera. It’s only one night after all. Or if dad is a honky-tonk country music fan, what better way to spend an evening than line dancing?
• Write down how you feel. Don’t rely on the greeting card companies to come up with a heartfelt message for your dad. Say it yourself. In person.
And give your dad a hug. It’s Father’s Day – he deserves it!
