Make a list of what you think are your dad’s values. Think of phrases your dad repeatedly says, such as, ‘Always tell the truth,’ or, ‘Try to do to your best’. These indicate the values he’s teaching (honesty and hard work, in these two examples). It might be that your dad doesn’t say these things all the time but once sat you down for a talk about these principles. Think of the way he lives his life. Notice if he does his best to be punctual or if he’s always well-dressed. Try to live your life by these principles.
You don’t have to agree with everything your dad says or does. Think about values that will affect your life in a positive way and try to implement those. If your dad has a way of doing something that you don’t agree with, discuss it with him. Maybe together, you can think of ways to help him change that.
