The older we get, the easier it is to understand the lessons our dads tried to impart to us. Good dads protect us, comfort us and provide us with a sense of security only they can… because, after all, that’s what protective dads do. And that’s what this video is all about – honoring the lessons learned from dads. If you have a protective dad, join in the conversation by sharing your story with the hashtag #LessonsFromDad on Facebook or Twitter, or leave your comments on YouTube with this video. If you want to celebrate the dad in your life, we’d love to hear from you.
