2 are better than 1.  If you are an adult and want to find a way to honor or please your dad, it is true that 2 persons working on a project are better than dad doing it by himself.  So a great Father’s Day gesture is to offer to help him with a project.  As Emily Dockery says, “Whether it’s a project he’s been working on for ages, one he started yesterday, or one he’s been putting off for weeks, he could probably use another pair of hands.  Even if you aren’t fond of the current task, it’s a way to let your dad know you care about him.”

Gary, a father, agreed that working on a project together would be a great gift, and said, “and while we are working together, we can talk and catch-up with each other’s lives, and hopefully share some laughs.”

The reversal of helping dad with a project may also be a gift to dad and to you.  Instead of you helping dad, ask him to help you with a project.  You are sending a positive message which says that you value him and would like to spend time together. This works especially well if your dad is retired and showing signs of being bored.

So consider giving your dad a “2 are better than 1” gift this Father’s Day.
