When u were 9 yrs. old, he paid for piano lessons. You thanked him by never bothering to practice. When you were 10 yrs. old he drove you all day, from soccer to football to one birthday party after another. You thanked him by jumping out of the car and never looking back. When you 11 yrs. old he took you and your friends to the movies. You thanked him by asking to sit in a different row. When you were 12 yrs. old he wanted you not to watch certain TV shows. You thanked him by waiting until he left the house. When you were 13, he suggested a hair-cut that was becoming. You thanked him by telling him he had no taste. When you were 14, he paid for a month away at Summer Camp. You thanked him by forgetting to write a single letter. When you were 15 yrs., he came home from work, looking for a hug. You thanked him by having you bed-room door locked. When you were 16, he taught you how to drive his car. You thanked him by taking it every chance you could. When you were 17, he expecting an important call. You thanked him by being on the phone all night. When you were 18, he cried at your high school graduation. You thanked him by staying out partying until dawn. When you were 19, he paid for your college tuition, drove you to campus carried your bags. You thanked him by saying good-bye outside the dorm so you wouldn't be embarresed in front of your friends. When you were 25, he helped to pay for your wedding and he carred and told you how deep he loved you. You thanked him by moving halfway across the country. When you were 50 he fell ill and needed you to take care of him you thanked him by reading about the burden parents become to their children, and then one day he quietly died. And everything you never did came crashing down like thunder on YOUR HEART.

woah, slow down there, i am only half way there (and english, and female and unmarried) so some doesn't exactly apply to me. but i love my dad uneqivically. yes i was a nightmare teen, as most people were, i probably shut my dad out many times between 13 and 18, but we have had a very strong relationship all through my life. both my parents and i have discussed what would happen if either of them ever needed round the clock care, and it was decided long ago that it would be me that would do it. i have 2 brothers and 3 sisters, so it's not like i would be the only choice, and if nothing else i would be honoured to do it. my parents are as important to me as my son is, and i know that as life goes on i will never regret the things that i haven't done for them, as there is very little that i wouldn't do for them. this is the way that they were for their parents, and the strong family bond has carried on through the generations.

Thanks.. dear bobbyjoe... your nice comments points of views on my discussion, its really the way that we build the strong family bond relation and thats'll go generation by generation, if we done good in past with our parents obviously our child / children will do for us better in our old age time. Its natural phenomena if do right and positive way must be recieved good in sense.... if going wrong obviously in-return bad... again thanks your nice views... (I'm male asian and un-married).

Yes i love my dad. He never angry on me. He always told my mistake very softly. So, there is nothing that can angry myself on my dad.

Nope, I dont love my dad. He left when I was 3 weeks old and never tried to contact me. I'm now 29 years old and have never even gotten one birthday card or hug from my own father.
