What are the most important things you learned from your father?

The most important thing I learned from my father is self-sufficiency. He would always say “Never ask anyone to do anything that you are able to do for yourself.”

I learned that corporal punishment is not an effective way to raise children; it accomplishes fear and temporary compliance instead of valuable lifelong lessons.

I learned that education is extremely important… it is far better to have a good (and continuing) education than to live your life eternally ignorant.

  1. My father is a patient man. He is still a good workman at 85 and one word to sum up his goodness, patience, work ethic and love– endurance. He’s been rock solid ever since I can remember.

  2. That’s amazing! I can’t imagine what it must feel like to have such love and support in a parent as you grew up. I’m eternally grateful that I married someone like your father…my children, like you, have a strong role model to emulate.
