18 Stories That Prove There’s No Love Like a Father’s Love

Family will always be that safe place to which we turn in times of need. You can be tired of everyday life, but never really of your mother. And while that remains largely true, you probably shouldn’t forget that a father’s affection is just as important.

Bright Side compiled different ways in which some daddies express their love and care for their children. We hope it serves as inspiration and brings a little warmth to your heart.

I didn’t think about it too much growing up, but I lived my childhood to the fullest I would say, and I think more because of the intention, a gesture like this from my dad early on really instilled a sense of confidence in me.
